Rend Lake College is bringing an exciting line-up of Community Education classes to Wayne City this fall.
Students will improve their health and coordination as well as learn how to work with others in "Martial Arts: Grades 3-5." Sensei Al and Lou Campbell will show students basic calisthenics and stretches. Students will experience basic stances and learn fundamental blocks, punches and falls that can be combined in self-defense techniques. Students should wear loose-fitting clothes and participate in bare feet. This class will meet from 3:30 p.m. to 5 p.m. on Thursdays from Sept. 17 through Oct. 8 in Wayne City High School's Multi-Purpose Room. Registration is $24.
Participation in "Hunter Safety" is required by state statute for hunters born on or after January 1, 1980, when applying for a hunting license. Tom Windland will instruct on wildlife management, firearms safety, hunter ethics, game identification, first aid, survival techniques and regulations. This is a free course, but pre-registration is required due to limited enrollment. Students should bring both a pen and pencil to both sessions, which will be held from 5 to 9 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 22, and from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 24, at Wayne City High School's Multi-Purpose Room.
"Diabetes Education" is for students who have been living with diabetes, just been diagnosed, or are simply wanting more information on the disease. Linda Duckworth instructs students on the signs and types of diabetes as well as blood sugar monitoring. Students also will learn the proper way to manage this disease through meal planning, exercise, and medical assistance. This class will meet from 6 to 8 p.m. Monday, Nov. 2, in Wayne City High School's Distance Learning Room. Registration is $5.
