We’re Burnaby’s Favourite Place to Learn a New Skill

We’re honoured to have been chosen by the citizens of Burnaby as the number one place in the city to learn a new skill.

Each year as part of their Burnaby A-List publication, local media outlet the Burnaby Now asks readers to choose their favourites in the city. One of the things that makes this so special is that there are no suggestions provided to voters – they’re given a blank line in which to indicate their choices for the annual list.

Superintendent Gina Niccoli-Moen:

What an unexpected honour to be recognized in this way. I’m grateful that people took the time to acknowledge the Burnaby School District. I’m so proud of the work that staff across the district do each day to support students, families and the community. Thank you so much.”

From learning new skills throughout the school year – including through Programs of Choice – to classes offered during Summer Session and through our adult education program, there is something for everyone from which to choose.

The full A-List is available here and is being distributed this week to more than 55,000 homes in a printed booklet.
