By December 4, 2009December 7th, 2009One Comment

North Ringwood Community House is currently situated at the rear of the Holy Spirit Primary School at 120 Oban Road.  The organisation provides a range of courses and is the only Community House that is accredited as a Registered Training Organisation within the City of Maroondah.

This accreditation means that North Ringwood Community House is able to provide courses that deliver Certificate III and IV qualifications, ensuring a range of new skills and training opportunities for our community.

This afternoon the Committee and Staff of North Ringwood Community House organised an end of year barbecue for staff and students.  Community Houses promote social inclusion, as well as the opportunity to learn skills and the barbecue reinforced the friendly atmosphere of the House.

I was joined by my fellow ward Councillors Nora Lamont and Ann Fraser, as well as Ryan Smith the Member of Warrandyte. It was great to see such a strong presence at the barbecue, demonstrating the community house’s importance to the City of Maroondah.

The feasibility study exploring options for the relocation of North Ringwood Community House is expected by February next year where it will be considered by Council and other levels of government.
