Education for Adults
Welcome to all our returning and new ElderCollege Delta members!
Again we are proud to invite you to participate in a rich educational and cultural feast of more than 30 activities this term. Our presenters are experienced and very knowledgeable in their fields – and most importantly – they love to teach!
As Chair I wonder how we will be able to create another program as good as the last but each term our wonderful Program Chairs, Paulette Tattersall and Sally Norcott find the best people to teach everything from astrophysics to gardening – with music, history and art thrown in!
Please click the button to read the list of courses, or, click the button to Register which will also give you a list of courses. However, registration for all courses begins on Monday, February 19 at 7 PM. You can choose to stay at your home and register online by paying with credit card – or, you can come to KinVillage and we will have volunteers prepared to help you register and pay either with credit card or by cash or cheque.
Once you click “Click Here to Register” you will be prompted for your Password. Just like other web sites, if you cannot locate that password, you may opt to “reset” it and new prompts will be sent to your email account.
ElderCollege Delta membership is $10.00 per calendar year.
Please note that the brochures have incorrectly named the operas to be discussed – here is the corrected information.
S1821 Friday Afternoon at the Opera
Come explore and appreciate the world’s greatest musical works of art. Witness their emotional content and lasting popularity. This semester, you will enjoy four operatic works. La Traviata by Verdi will lead our series, followed by Donizetti’s Lucia di Lammermoor and Tchaikovsky’s Eugene Onegin. Our series will end in high style with Iolanthe by Gilbert and Sullivan. Be sure to join us for Friday afternoon at the opera!
Presenter – Rod Asher (Musical Accompanist, ElderCollege Singers)
ElderCollege Delta (ECD) is a community-based, volunteer group dedicated to a mission of enhancing knowledge and lifestyles. We take a relaxed approach, providing opportunities for lifelong learning and personal growth.
As with other KinVillage Community Centre offerings, our education courses are created based upon the wide-variety of interests and needs demonstrated by our target population of adults “north of 50”.
The courses are short, stimulating and are without pressure or exams.
All of the instructors are also volunteers, experienced in their respective fields. Typical courses offered are in computers, arts (visual, literary, musical), languages, psychology, science, current affairs, social issues, gardening and much more.
Two semesters are available, running in both the spring (April-May) and fall (October-November). With a nominal $10 annual membership fee and modest individual course fees, ElderCollege learning is both affordable and varied. Prior to each semester, watch the local papers for information and the libraries for brochures for current courses being offered, and, of course, here on the KinVillage website.
Over 600 mature students have enjoyed the benefits of ECD education. We always need volunteers and space to accommodate our many diverse learning opportunities. If you can or wish to contribute, kindly contact us.
Inquiries on courses or other matters can be made via email email@example.com or leave a message at 604-943-0225.
*NEW* THIS TERM IS THE OPTION OF ENROLLING AND PAYING REGISTRATION FEES ONLINE WITH VISA OR MASTERCARD EITHER AT HOME OR IN OUR OFFICE WITH VOLUNTEER HELP.
Please note that ElderCollege reserves the right to cancel courses which have low registration numbers.
You must be a member of ElderCollege Delta to take a course. Membership fees are $10 per year and may be purchased along with registration fees.
Fees are payable by cheque, cash or credit card. Our goal at ElderCollege Delta is to be self-sustaining.
A refund will be issued only if a course is cancelled or at the discretion of ElderCollege for extenuating circumstances when requested by a student. If for any reason a presenter is unable to attend we will attempt to provide a suitable substitute.
If you cannot be accommodated because a course is full, you may have your name included on a wait list. You do not have to be an ElderCollege Delta member to be on the wait list, and the registration fee is payable only after confirmation of a place in the course.
It is requested that the use of men & women’s scented products are not worn during ElderCollege courses due to individuals who have allergenic reaction upon contact with these scents.
ElderCollege Delta is pleased to partner with fellow organizations in other geographic areas outside of Delta, BC.

Registration takes place each year in the Spring and Fall. Watch the local papers or Contact Us for specific dates and more information.
