Community Education Program


It is with great regret that Southland Community Education has decided to cancel all in person Community Education activities indefinitely due to safety concerns surrounding the Covid-19 pandemic. This includes Summer Rec and the Pool Bus. Drivers Training is being moved back to start August 17th and we are currently looking for ways to offer our Speed and Agility camp through a virtual medium, more information will be coming as we develop a more concrete plan.


The safety of our kids is our number one priority at this time. If we get to a point where it is determined to be safe to resume large gatherings, we will look into opening some camps and activities back up.
