Go on a mental adventure at Selkirk College

The snow has started to fall, bringing us inside, but there are still plenty of courses to help take your mind off the winter gloom.

The snow has started to fall, bringing us inside, but there are still plenty of courses to help take your mind off the winter gloom. Take yourself on a virtual tour with stops in Hawai’i (Nov. 22), the Ukraine (Nov. 22) and early civilization (Ancient Grains,  Dec. 6) with Deb Guest’s cooking classes.

Learn how to Draw More than a Stick Man with Barbara Maye on Nov. 24 and 25. Then you will have an excuse to spend some time by the fire or huddled over the heater as you refine your new skills.

There are also a couple of chances to take Occupational First Aid before the year is over, on December 2 and 7.

Be sure to keep an eye out for Selkirk College’s Course Calendar to find out what will be offered in the New Year. If you are interested in a course, make sure you register early, as courses with low enrolment often get cancelled.

Cancellations occur because there are minimum numbers required before classes can run. If you wait until the last minute to register, we don’t know you want to take the course, and the course may already be cancelled. You can register by calling 250-265-4077 or dropping into the centre from Tuesday to Friday from 11 a.m. – 3 p.m.

As always, Nakusp Adult Basic Education (ABE) is offering a variety of options for people who are interested in upgrading, whether it is for post-secondary programs, taking a university course, studying for their G.E.D., or enjoyment.

The ABE centre has changed their evening hours. We are now open Monday and Wednesday evenings from 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m., instead of 7 – 9 p.m. We are still open Monday through Thursday 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. (closed at noon for an hour lunch). You can register in ABE courses any time we are open by calling Nathaniel or Celina at 250-265-3640 or dropping into the Centre.
