I just fit in here

“I just wanted to help my son with his homework and not feel like I can’t help him.”

Sarah Jane is a single mum. She was participating in Olympic Adult Education’s play group program when she discovered that a few of her friends were attending Olympic’s adult education classes.

“So I did a bit of investigation and, yeah, I enrolled.”

At Olympic Adult Education, Sarah Jane is studying maths, reading, spelling, and IT.

And even though high school was not a good experience for Sarah Jane, things are totally different now.

“I love coming here every day. I fit in well here. Everybody is so lovely.”

“The teachers make me feel so comfortable. All the staff remember your name.”

One of Sarah Jane’s greatest achievements will be to feel confident enough to help her son with his homework when he comes home from school.
