Adults head back to school

GROWN–UPS will get the chance to go back to school and learn something new during Adult Learners Week from September 1 to 8.

As part of the week the Bundaberg Region Learning Community has produced a Learning Passport, sponsored by Bundaberg Community Development and the Bundaberg Regional Council.

Council community and arts portfolio spokeswoman Judy Peters, said there was something to learn for everyone.

“Learning is the key to enhancing your everyday life skills – whether it is computer training or changing a tyre,” she said.

“I am sure there is something for everyone so I would encourage everyone to come and be involved.”

This year’s passport features more than 40 free training sessions presented by 10 different providers.

Topics include everything from Powerpoint to paving.

The Learning Passports are available now at the Bundaberg Community Development Office in the School of Arts Building next to the Council Chamber in Bourbong Street, or from all the council’s centres in Bundaberg, Bargara, Childers and Gin Gin, or libraries at Bundaberg, Childers, Gin Gin and Woodgate.

For more details phone Bundaberg Community Development on 4130 4150 or check the council’s website at
