Programs & Services - Family and Community - Overview

Family and Community

Families and the community are at the heart of all we do in our schools. There are many ways we’re striving to build more meaningful relationships with the community so that we can ensure every child and every family can fully participate in learning and growing.

Whether it’s through our Community Schools, the opportunities being created in new Neigbhourhood Learning Centres (NLC spaces), or through engagement opportunities for parents, we want to help build connections and increase the support available to people.

Why? Because when we can connect the whole community, focussing on the whole needs of kids and families, it empowers all of us to achieve more, together.

We invite you to learn more about what that looks like by continuing explore this site.
