There are two classes offered, both on Mondays from 4:30pm to 6:30pm, with one being a 6-week course running from September 15 to October 27, and the other a 4-week course from November 3 to December 4; the cost is $84 and $56 respectively. This is a great way to keep your child involved in extracurricular activities and developing new skills through the school year.
A sewing class for teens and adults at a beginner level is also available. Students will be taught the basics of sewing, such as the parts of a sewing machine and various stitching patterns, and be guided in making a pair of boxes or pajama bottoms. Classes are 4 weeks long and offered on Mondays from September 8 to 29, October 6 to November 3 or November 10 to December 1. All classes run from 7pm to 9pm and are $56 per person.
