Cour­ses to be of­fered in English in Cowansville

Stanstead Journal - - NEWS - Ma­gog

The fruits of a part­ner­ship be­tween the East­ern Town­ships School Board (ETSB) and Cham­plain Re­gional Col­lege (CRC) will give stu­dents who wish to study in English from the Cowansville area the op­por­tu­nity to at­tend CÉGEP closer to home, more specif­i­cally those whose per­sonal cir­cum­stances pre­vent them from re­lo­cat­ing. The ETSB’S Coun­cil of Com­mis­sion­ers was unan­i­mous in its sup­port to move ahead quickly with the pro­posed col­lab­o­ra­tion be­tween the ETSB and Cham­plain Re­gional Col­lege (Len­noxville Cam­pus).

For stu­dents liv­ing in the Massey-vanier High School basin, at­tend­ing CÉGEP pre­vi­ously meant that they would have to re­lo­cate to ei­ther Len­noxville or Montreal. “In speak­ing with former stu­dents, par­ents and our school ad­min­is­tra­tion, this hur­dle can be a huge fac­tor in dis­cour­ag­ing some from pur­su­ing post-sec­ondary stud­ies. By of­fer­ing cour­ses in Cowansville, they can ful­fill their dream of con­tin­u­ing their ed­u­ca­tion when cir­cum­stances pre­vent them from mov­ing. Although CÉGEP is be­yond our ju­ris­dic­tion, of­fer­ing the best op­por­tu­ni­ties for our stu­dents is, and this part­ner­ship will be an ex­cel­lent op­por­tu­nity for our grad­u­ates. We are look­ing for­ward to work­ing with Cham­plain Re­gional Col­lege and are ex­cited about im­ple­ment­ing this new ven­ture,” ex­pressed Chan­tal C. Beaulieu, Di­rec­tor Gen­eral of the ETSB.
