The 2015 AGM was a huge celebration like every year with a huge turnover of students and staff who brought delicous food from different cuisines to be shared.

Emma King, CEO of VCOSS graced our AGM with her esteemed presence and spoke about the important role Neighbourhood Houses play in their local communities

On 14th May we had a fantastic trip to the Dandenong Ranges to celebrate Neighbourhood House Week.

It was an excellent opportunity for the students and the teachers to get  together and explore the beautiful ranges.

Despite the cold and wet weather everybody enjoyed thoroughly.

We have a community garden, largely managed by the gardeners themselves. 

Some of the plots are there for communal use. Local schools and other organisations make use of them, the rest are allocated to individuals who wish to tend their own plot. 

Throughout the year the garden hosts community events and education activities in conjunction with like-minded organisations such as Melbourne Inner Northwest Transition Initiative (MINTI) and My Smart Garden
