Courses at Berwick Royal Oak

We are very sorry to announce that due to high frequency of resident-only events and the extreme shortage of available, convenient parking for our students, Berwick Royal Oak is no longer able to offer space for some of our courses. We have been searching for viable alternative venues in the Royal Oak area, but to date we have not been successful.

SAGE Study Group

The most active component of SAGE is our study groups. Study groups are not taught by instructors; rather, a facilitator assists in coordinating the presentations of group members and in moderating the discussions. An important aspect of study groups is their small size (maximum 15 participants). Group members quickly get to know each other, and learning takes place in a relaxed, friendly and supportive environment. There is a limited number of fee waivers available for all study groups. Study groups happen through your initiative, so if there is a subject you would love to learn more about and you are willing to facilitate a group next term, please give Janet McDonald a call at 250-721-8827.
