CHARLOTTETOWN, P.E.I. — If you’re an Islander aged 50 or over, the P.E.I. Senior’s College has just the thing to help you beat those winter “blahs.”

The college still has room in several of its courses for the new term that started Monday.

Want to know how judges decide what kind of sentence to hand down? Ever wondered how journalists choose the stories they cover, and how they make it into the news? Perhaps you just want sing your heart out in a choir with a good choral director or learn some line-dancing steps. The Senior’s College courses have you covered for all of those, and more.

“People don't have to worry about bad weather causing confusion about class disruptions — we link our cancellation plan to local school boards in Prince and Kings County, and to UPEI for Charlottetown, so it's easy to figure out whether class is on,” said coordinator Martha Ellis.

“And we're pretty good at rescheduling, to make sure no one misses out.”

The winter term started Monday. A membership costs $160 and allows participants to take as many courses as they wish over three semesters —winter (January and February), spring (April and May) and fall (October and November).
