Weekly Update For Our Adult Education Programme

Adult Education

Ozanam House Adult Education programme is continuing to support our students in these challenging times.  

We have started our cookery class from home programme.  Our cookery teachers have started a 6 week course were each week students receive recipes by post with a star ingredient.  

This weeks star ingredient is  – lentils.

Students are provided with information on the health benefits and a variety of recipes.  A link to a video is also sent for students that want to follow a demonstration. Keep an eye here for more information and links to our demos….coming soon!

Our Art class students have received materials and a weekly exercise book to continue building their art skills.  

This week they are focusing on  – portraits.  

Along with the booklet our art teacher has provided a video demonstration to all participants.

Our Dress Making class have all received activity packs and materials so our members are now keeping busy making furnishings for the home

Yoga with our amazing instructor Cormac on Monday evening is Ozanam House Adult Education’s first online class and is so popular with our members.  

As we don’t have the ability to run all of our classes remotely we are sending activities or gift by post to the remaining students.

Our Adult Education Classes Are Still In Operation

Our Adult Education programmes are still in operation. We understand the importance of making contact with participants – checking in and letting them know what services they can avail of from us over the coming weeks and months. Our plan is to offer online learning platforms and supports and to run a shortened term of classes before or during the Summer depending on when we can re-open in the centre.

Some important points to note for now;

  • Anyone interested in doing a course with us in the future or availing of our education supports we will be offering over the next few weeks can register their interest by emailing admin@ozanamhouse.ie

In the mean time we will be offering the following services over the coming weeks

Our team of staff and teachers are planning to provide what resources we can to different classes through learner activity packs or online classes and tutorials. Some examples of these are:

  • Dressmaking – patterns and activities being sent to members or anyone interested (see above email address) so they can keep practising at home
  • IT – sharing exercises and learning resources that we will share online with them via our website
  • Cookery – recipes already being shared online including instructional videos. We will be posting recipes to people who don’t have Internet access. Online classes and demos are a possibility over the coming weeks
  • Mindfulness & Yoga – Exercises and activities and online classes being shared with participants by our teachers

So, watch this space for more great learning opportunities in adult education
