What Our Learners Say

You’re never too old to learn something new. It’s exciting when you get that kind of knowledge and it gives you the drive to want to go on and move further.”

Rosalie Snape-Anderson

Class of 2021 Learner

“Everyone is very supportive of me and now I can read much more than I used to. I know I still have a long way to go to get my diploma, but I’m not giving up. I’m 62 years old and I’ve had a hard life, but it’s never too late.”
