Rossett Adult Learning had been due to start its Summer Programme on April 20, with sessions to be held in classrooms at the school. But, in the light of coronavirus restrictions, organisers have set up online courses instead.

The centre, which has a large and vibrant community of adult learners aged between 18 and 90, is hoping the virtual classes will help current students to continue their studies. It has also welcomed newcomers looking to try something different and connect with other people.

The Summer Programme courses are being held online for an initial trial period of five weeks. The sessions cover a range of subjects in art, culture, history, crafts, gardening, music, exercise and languages.

Rossett Adult Learning manager Melissa Horberry said: “We were delighted to launch our online sessions this week, offering a relatively wide range of courses from our planned Summer Programme.”

She added: “We have such a fantastic community at Rossett Adult Learning and have had a great response to our virtual classes.

“Our current groups can stay connected, motivate each other, and continue some longstanding friendships, as well as their learning experience, online.”

The virtual Summer Programme courses are available five days a week at various times, including daytime and evening classes.
