Reconnecting with our Community

With restrictions slowly lifting and families and children returning to the site, Our Place staff kicked off the month of March with a four week ‘Engagement Blitz’ as a means to reconnect with families.

Aligning to the Our Place approach

Adult Engagement and Learning is one of the five evidenced-based Elements that are central to the Our Place approach.  Our Place supports opportunities for families to engage in volunteering, formal and informal learning, and link them into employment pathways.

  • Develop a sense of belonging and purpose that contributes to improved self-esteem, confidence and capability within many aspects of their lives.
  • Reduce community members’ isolation by enabling them to develop stronger social networks.
  • Encourage a good home learning environment that encourages children to have positive attitudes to learning and confidence and resilience at school.
