Listen to our students talk about learning at Lalor

Last year, one of our students, Marcelle Orfali, spoke with Julie Johnson of the North-East Neighbourhood House Network (NENHN) of how education at Lalor Living & Learning Centre has enriched the lives of her and her family.

A couple of years ago one of our students, Joe Xerri, spoke with Julie Johnston of the NENHN. He told her what it was like to return to learning as an adult. We shared Joe’s video with some of our stakeholder colleagues and they were moved by his honesty. Listen below and tell us what you think.
