English classes have started with gusto in the Bordertown MRC, with about 15 women students wanting more class days to learn and to take advantage of opportunities for engaging with the committed community volunteer teachers. Our recent consultations with the women have told us how much the women are enjoying engaging with technology, socialising in their new environment and meeting new community friends who are helping them to navigate the English language and systems. The women have voiced their needs and the Bordertown MRC will focus on trying to meet these during 2020. They want employment pathways, driving lessons and social activities. Most importantly, they have stated that: “We need more English classes, twice a week is not enough for us to learn English and to get a job.” They have come a long way from being very new arrivals to making an impact in this small town they call home.
