The following story was written by Dianne, from the Bedford Sackville area in Nova Scotia. Dianne has recently been enrolled in literacy classes with the Bedford Sackville Literacy Network.
I never thought I could go back to school at my age. I am 47 and my kids are already finished school. I decided it was time to do something for myself so I called the literacy network. Going to Sackville High the first time was the scariest thing I've ever done. But everyone was really nice, especially my tutor. Now I like Monday nights because I know I will learn something new. You're never too old to go back to school !
