Our recent Play Learn Connect program finished up before the school holidays. The last day saw the participants and their children head to Scienceworks, which they all absolutely loved. Many of the families had never been there before so it was a real treat.
Some real connections have formed between the participants and although their program has come to an end, we have encouraged them to continue to come to the gymnasium for play time. Great news is that they voted to keep attending and now attend the Centre on Mondays for play and sharing food.
PRACE will roll out the program again in 2020.
The Play Learn Connect project is funded by the Department of Home Affairs Fostering Integration Grants program. The grants support new initiatives by not-for-profit organisations that will help migrants better integrate into Australian life through employment and community participation.
