After-School Program

Our After-School Program (formerly known as “Study Group”) has provided support to children and young people in Greater Hume for over 17 years. The After-School Program provides a suite of activities to support the academic, social, physical and creative development of primary and secondary students outside of school hours.

In addition to academic support, we stimulate and inspire children through fun recreational and creative activities, and create a welcoming and inclusive environment for children, their parents and volunteers from diverse cultural backgrounds – many of whom are newly arrived in the area and need support to settle into the community.

To make sure that we are able to provide a safe and quality service, we have limited places available in each activity. Each week on Mondays we open bookings for activities that week via SMS and email. Parents/carers are then able to book into the relevant activities for their child.
