SUMMERSIDE — The 2013 winter session of the P.E.I. Community Schools Association launches this week, including classes at nine locations in Prince County, from Alberton to Kensington.

Some locations already provided pre-registration dates though most will be registering on the same night classes begin.

Each community school location has its own co-ordinator and list of available courses. Sessions operate one night per week for 10-weeks and vary in cost from $10 to $20 for the complete session.

Some individual classes may also have additional costs for necessary materials or require participants to supply necessary items. Classes are taught by volunteer instructors. 

Each location may also impose an age limit for participation or require younger participants to be accompanied by an adult.

Complete information on each location and courses available is available from Shirley Moore at 892-3445 or at
