Free night school classes for adults

Classes begin Sept. 13

Edward Milne Community School and the Westshore Centre for Learning and Training are joining together to offer free evening courses in Sooke.

“This will be the first time in over a decade when residents in the Sooke Region won’t have to commute outside of Sooke to top up or upgrade their high school credits,” says Heather Walsh, the Community School Coordinator at Edward Milne Community School.

The focus of the program will be on academic courses, such as high-school English and Math, two credits needed to graduate, as well as on pre-requisites for college or university.

Classes begin Sept. 13 and will be offered Tuesday and Thursday evenings with homework support on Wednesday evenings.

Call 250-642-6371 for more information or 250-391-9002 to make an appointment with an academic advisor.

The Edward Milne Community School Society has offered recreation and leisure classes (such as art classes, yoga, bookkeeping, and cooking) for over 20 years but these will be the first academic programs offered in the evenings since 1999. Participants will be able to attend classes in the evenings, set their own learning goals, and benefit from having access to trained teachers and an academic advisor.
