the Upriver project > achievements


Only five month have passed since the start of the project.  The list of achievements is impressive:

  • supported organization of GED (adult learning programme leading to a high school diploma) at the Harcourt Fire Hall
  • Aerobics at the Royal Canadian Legion in Harcourt
  • French as a second language class at the Bass River Fair Hall - note by the webmaster: the way Katherine Halas-Moulton taught us in a French-only environment was quite stressful for the slow ones like me, but it was great fun (also thanks to the group) and even I learned something - or as Valerie always exclaimed "C'est fantastique!"  Merci beaucoup, Katherine, and please continue the classes in the fall.
