Community Hubs are being established through a National program that links families and their preschool children to services and support, learning opportunities and the wider community.
At Dandenong West Primary School, our Community Hub brings local information and services spanning education, health, community and settlement into a familiar and friendly place. Community Hubs is funded by the Australian Government in partnership with the Scanlon Foundation, the Migration Council Australia and Refuge of Hope.
Being part of a Hub can help families create friendships and support networks, and give a sense of belonging. For many preschool children, being a part of a Hub can help them to feel at home in their school environment and more prepared to start school.
At Dandenong West Primary School, everyone is welcome to join in all our activities, including our English classes, Playgroup and Mens Shed.
