We are excited to be easing out of lockdown and re-introducing our small group gatherings. This includes: 

  • After school, weekend and school holiday programs, 
  • Social and Wellbeing group programs,

COVID-19 is still very present in our community, and we will continue to maintain our vigilance so we can do our best to protect each other. We have COVID safety plans in place to minimise the spread of COVID-19, and systems and processes to ensure we are fully compliant with regulations.
