Welcome to the Edubuntu community, Neil!

Since you mentioned an interest in documentation, I wanted to let you know about the Edubuntu Cookbook at:

Feel free to add a "recipe" on whatever you find useful and feel you could explain to others (using the gimp, perhaps?) about Edubuntu.

The Cookbook will only be successful if community members such as yourself contribute to it.
