Our community partnerships:

Farnham Street has a strong relationhip with the Moonee Valley City Council which has developed over many years. In particular we have a very close working relationship with the management and staff at the Flemington Library, the Avondale Heights Library, the Sam Merrifield Library and the Flemington Community Centre. Their support with facilities and resources allows us to offer a wider range of courses and activities to our students, and we are also able to provide more opportunities to residents in the community

Our funding:

Our training is delivered with core funding from the Victorian Government Adult Community and Further Education Board and the Department of Education and Early Childhood Development. Other funding bodies include the Department of Human Services and City of Moonee Valley.
