Sooke Region Lifelong Learning serves up new courses

Education by donation from January to May

If your thirst for knowledge is on a limited budget, Sooke Region Lifelong Learning will fit your bill.

Registration is now open by donation for a variety of courses that run from January to May.

Some of the 11 courses offered through Zoom include The History and Restoration of Sheringham Point Lighthouse, Water, Water Everywhere?, Eat (and Drink) the Weeds, World Events, Planning a Road Trip, EV Style, and The Periodic Table of the Elements.

Dr. Michael Cox, who conducted a session during the fall on CODID 19 and mRNA vaccines, will be back with The History of Science.

Those who enjoyed Christine Bossi’s Child Soldiers presentation in the fall will be pleased to learn she is offering Humanitarian Aid – Dilemmas and Successes in the spring. Hester Vair returns as well with The Great Derangement.

A total of 199 people took part in the 11 fall sessions via Zoom.

“It was a very successful term,” said Chris Moss, SRLL chair. “We had a good variety of programs for all interests.”

Moss said the SRLL volunteer steering committee wants to express their appreciation to the instructors and presenters, the many learners and organizations that promoted the SRLL.

He also encouraged those who would like to support the volunteer organization’s efforts to click on the donate button on the website at https://www.canadahelps.org/en/dn/36960.
