A Computer Club was started at South Hamilton during the school year 1991-1992. In the early days of computers used at home and school, it was thought that students might enjoy learning more about what the computer could do and how to care for computers in case students and their family might buy one. This was in the late 1980s and early 1990s.

It those days, it was rare for students to have a computer at home. Most had used one in the computer lab as school for their typing classes, now called keyboarding. The school had Apple 2E machines in the computer lab, and a new PC lab with 286 machines. Windows was new, but some students still talked about things they could do using DOS. Many had heard of something called the INTERNET and email, but these were so new that some learning and experimentation was needed.
