We hope you are doing well during this difficult time.
We want to assure you that we are working hard on a plan for on line courses, so students can resume their studies. Your teachers will be in contact with you by phone, email, text or BAND very soon to share some of these details. You will be asked to do a technology survey and whether or not you would like to continue your studies on line. We do not know when the Centre will re-open. This decision is up to the Ministry of Public Health. We will continue to update our website with new information as it comes in. I want to thank each of you for your patience and understanding.
I know this is not easy and we are all struggling to cope with this difficult situation.
Stay Safe. The staff at the Centre wish you and your family the best of health.
