On June 6, Logan Community Hubs at Woodridge North State School and St Pauls Catholic Primary School received a visit from Dr Jim Watterston, the Director General of the Department of Education and Training, and Sharon Schimming, the Deputy Director-General of Early Childhood and Community Engagement. Operated by Access, these two hubs are a part of three others based in Logan with a further five about to be opened in the Ipswich area. They service a large number of families from refugee and migrant backgrounds and assist them by bringing local information and services around education, health, community and settlement into a familiar and friendly place. The hubs work with women and pre-school children, offering services such as skills training, English classes, sewing and breakfast clubs, as well as volunteering opportunities and community events. Dr Watterston was able to see a playgroup in action at Woodridge North and witness an adult English lesson at St Pauls, said he was very inspired from his visit. “It has given me an insight into how the hubs have had a powerful impact on local families,” he said.
