Class 10- Maintaining good health/coping with vision loss
Class 11-Leisure, adaptive techniques for crafts, hobbies, cards and games, sports and exercise.
Class 12- The clients put their newly acquired knowledge to the test as their final challenge was to coordinate their own graduation party using the skills they acquired throughout the program.

The graduation was a roaring success!  Graduates entered to “Pomp and Circumstance” played on their kazoos, speeches were given and special recognition was given to Sheryl Fitzgerald, BCABVI’s social worker and class instructor.


Gaye Vile composed the following poem that expressed her feelings about the class:

Our family and friends
Will no longer be concerned
When they see all the things
We have learned
Used a fork and knife
While we ate at the table
Eating in restaurants
We now are able

Learned about lighting
The contrasts of trays
Light behind us
On brightly lit days

Sweeping and mopping

Cleaning the floors
Cleaning the glass
In the center’s doors

Because of this group
We’re all a bit stronger
We have to confess
Things take longer!
