Community Development


Our classes run every Friday 9:30am to 11:30am during school term.  Classes are free, and no bookings required.


We welcome people from all backgrounds and ability to come along.  It is a fun and relaxed class, with no gradings or tests.  We emphasise practical English that people can use in their everyday lives.


We are always looking for volunteers, and welcome anyone who loves to have a chat.  In particular, TESOL qualified teachers are a rare gem that we would love to have more of.


The Multicultural Speakers Program (MSP) trains volunteers to tell their story of coming to and living in Australia, to challenge racial stereotypes, change community attitudes, and promote multicultural participation.

We are always on the lookout for audiences so please contact us if you are a workplace or community group that is interested in listening to the fabulous stories our speakers have to tell.  

You have a story to tell which people may never otherwise hear, and this will help them to become well rounded Australians as well.  What you give in your story is really important for the good of our whole community… and every story is important.”
