More than 100 students graduate from Adult Education programs

100 Graduates Adult Ed

Graduation ceremonies are being held across Eeyou/Eenou Istchee territory to mark the graduation of 111 students from vocational and adult education programs. 

Over the course of 2017-18, 86 students graduated from vocational training programs, and 25 adult students completed the requirements for their high school diploma.

Seven of these students donned cap and gown for a ceremony at the Youth Centre in Mistissini August 31, 2018; ceremonies are planned in other communities later in September.

"Whenever a student chooses to return to school, we celebrate that decision, because it's not an easy one to make," said Sabtuan Adult Education Services Director Nian Matoush. "Then, when their goal is realized, when they are successful in completing their education, we can't help but feel all that emotion along with them. It's really a remarkable achievement for these adult students."

Sabtuan Adult Education Services, as a division of the Cree School Board, provides a wide range of high-quality, community-based educational and training opportunities for adults. On average, almost 800 adults engage in general education or vocational training.
