Community Hub


Point Cook College Community Hub is part of the Community Hubs Australia Network. It is a welcoming and inclusive place where parents and carers can connect with other families and their children’s school, participate in activities, link with support services, or just come in, have a cup of tea or coffee and a chat.

 

The Community Hub has a strong focus on providing programs and services to migrant and refugee women and their young children. We do this by providing English language classes, playgroups, women’s activity groups, wellbeing activities, volunteering opportunities and other programs. These programs give participants the opportunity to learn, participate, share and grow in a supported and friendly environment.

 

We look forward to meeting you, at your ‘Community Hub’.
