Community School 2020-2021

Hello Everyone:

I have not heard back from all of the schools stating their intentions for the 2021 Winter Season for Community Schools.

To date, the majority of the Winter Schools that operate out of the Public Schools buildings have cancelled.  The Public Schools are not allowing any outside groups to use the schools. Thank you for your understanding and I hope you come out in full support in 2022.  Take care.

There is one exception, Grand Tracadie.

Grand Tracadie is located in a community centre and therefore are able to operate under the Covid regulations.  I hope you will support Grand Tracadie in any way to can this year, by offering to instruct and/or taking a class.

Fall Courses – 2020

All six Fall schools have cancelled for this fall: Stratford, Donagh, M.E. Callaghan, Vernon River, O’Leary and Summerside.

Over 2500 Islanders attend community schools programming each winter and fall across the province. Courses such as guitar, arts, crafts, introductory computer, and many more are offered to all Islanders. PEI Community Schools have been in existence for over 50 years and depend on volunteers to plan, organize and deliver programs of interest to all age groups.

For a complete list of schools, please check the side panel of this site and it will tell you if it is a Winter, Fall or Seniors School.  Once you click on the school you are interested in, you should be taken to that school’s page.  Some of our Seniors schools run year round and even though it is a “senior’ school, many will accept residents of the community that would just like to join in!  We will strive to put as much information as possible on these pages for your convenience.

Also you may wish to sign up for our e-Newsletter.We will periodically send out relevant information and you can receive it directly in your email!  Please be assured that your email address will be kept strictly confidential and not shared with any other parties. If you find you are not getting your emails, please check your junk mail and move it to your ordinary mail.  Thank you.

PLEASE NOTE:

If you would like to be a volunteer instructor or just help out at one of our schools, please call the contact number at the desired location.

The Island wide flyer to advertise our winter schools will go out in December (between Christmas and New Years) in the flyer packs.  An ad goes out in the paper for the Fall Classes approximately the end of August or the first week in September (unfortunately there are no Fall Schools operating for the fall of 2020. Advertising is different for the Winter and Fall sessions, so please check on-line and at various local bulletin boards!

We would like to thank the provincial government of Prince Edward Island for their continued support and funding. Without their help, much of our program would not be able to exist.  A sincere thank you from all of us at PEIACS.
