Shepparton Community Hubs Celebrate
Date: 28 November 2019
A celebration is being held this week to mark a very successful first year of operation for Shepparton school hubs.
The celebration will run from 3.30 to 6.30pm at Africa House (Poplar Ave) on Thursday, November 28th.
The event celebrates the achievements of the Community Hubs based at St Georges Road/Shepparton English Language Centre; Wilmot Road; & Gowrie Street Primary Schools.
The Hubs were established by Community Hubs Australia as welcoming places where families, particularly parents with young children from migrant or refugee backgrounds can connect, enjoy shared activities and learn.
Operation of the Hubs is a partnership between Community Hubs Australia, the three schools and Greater Shepparton Lighthouse Project.
“The aim is to bridge the gap between migrants and the wider community. We connect women, children and families with schools, with each other and with organisations that can provide health, education and settlement support,’’ explained Support Co-ordinator Lisa Morey of Greater Shepparton Lighthouse Project.
Hub leaders at each of the Hubs provide a safe and welcoming and stimulating environment for families to connect and learn, and in doing so, help prepare their children for school.
“Our Hub Leaders, supported by their school Principals, our community partnerships and the resilience of our Hub Members are the strength of our Hubs, Ms Morey explained.
“We look forward to welcoming everyone along to help us celebrate the Hubs and acknowledge all of those who help to make the Hubs the welcoming spaces they are. ‘’
