​Our Community Hub​

In partnership with Community Hubs Australia, we deliver a Community Hub program on our school grounds with the focus on supporting people from culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds (including migrants, refugees and temporary visa holders).

Our Community Hub is a safe and supportive space for families who are interested in connecting, learning new things and joining in quality early childhood activities. Our Community Hub is designed to enhance and deliver education and training, employment pathways, health services, settlement and language support for vulnerable families.

At our Community Hub we:

  • Provide a variety of rich engagement activities including cultural events, educational and health programs through partnerships with Multicultural Sports and QLD libraries
  • Break down barriers between support services and enhance coordination and collaboration for families to connect with a range of local services including Child Health Nurses, Oral Health, Occupational Therapist, Speech Pathologist, Centre for Women, 99 Steps, Translating services
  • Deliver short courses, such as English classes, or even support for parenting and healthy living
  • Foster healthy child development through such programs as our Marsden Young Explorers Playgroup, and prepare children to succeed at school by increasing participation in early years services
