Classes, Programs and Progress!


We are already half way through Term 1 of 2015 and things are definitely in motion around here.

You can read about our exciting developments, both online and on the ground, in our recent Newsletter.

The newsletter also includes updated information on the classes and programs which are running this year at our Centre.

We are very excited about the future development of the Burnley Backyard and the Community Hub in the former Channel 9 site and their place in our vibrant and ever-changing community.

The lull before the storm

Two days to go until the Green Family Life Festival starts at 10:00am this Sunday and we are expecting many families to storm through our centre eager to discover what green ideas, products and fun activities we have for them and their children.  Great food and drink to buy and lots of prizes to win too.  First one is the door prize so make sure you fill out the entry form as you come through our gates.

We’ve been winded, rained on, cooled down and then warmed up.  The sun is shining as we write this and the Melbourne weather forecast is looking very promising for Sunday’s festival.  See you then!
