National Reconciliation Week (NRW) 27 May to 3 June, is a time for all Australians to learn about our shared histories, cultures, and achievements, and to explore how each of us can contribute to achieving reconciliation in Australia.

18-24 May 2020

During the COVID 19 restrictions, our wonderful volunteers are continuing to support our students, by phone, or Via Zoom on the computer, or ipad. They are providing not just help with English, but are keeping in contact with students who are isolated. 



During COVID-19 lockdown, Farnham Street has smoothly transitioned to remote and online learning using various platforms like Zoom, WhatsApp, Facetime etc. For students in lower level English classes, who have limited computer knowledge or access, educational packs have been mailed out. The teachers are following up regularly to work through the lessons and provide emotional support.

We also setup a social contact plan to ensure that none of our participants would feel isolated or vulnerable.

While the centre at Farnham Street is not open to the public but we are still running classes for our students.

Supporting our community and students is the essence of Farnham street, however, the health and safety must be the priority.

We expect most of our classes will be up and running again in Term 3 , however we will await government advice on this. We are available by phone on 9376 9088 or email at

Farnham Street won the 2020 NHVic Community Development Award for their Resilient Refugee Youth program.

This project improves the quality of life for young, newly arrived refugees by matching them up with a Mentor who is responsive to their individual needs, providing them with guidance and assistance to achieve their personal, educational and professional goals.
