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.

Volunteers who help English students at Farnham Street Neighbourhood Learning Centre have become an integral part of the life blood of the Centre. Most of the volunteers are engaged in participating in a one-on-one partnership with a person who is here to improve their English language skills.

If you’d be interested in joining the FSNLC EAL (English as an Additional Language) Volunteer Tutor program, please contact Robbie Cottrill at FSNLC, 9376 9088 or

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
