Pooraka Farm Community Centre (formerly Pooraka Farm Neighbourhood House) is situated on Montague Farm Estate, on the corner of Henderson Avenue and Montague Road right next to the windmill. The modern building, which is light and airy, was constructed in 1993. The Centre is adjacent to a childcare centre and opposite a shopping complex. It is within easy walking distance from Main North Rd, and not far from Mawson Lakes, and there are several bus routes which run nearby. (Go to 'Contact Us' for details.)
The Cross-Cultural Women’s Group is a class that encourages all women to share their backgrounds and skills with others. Meeting every Monday starting 6th Feb from 12:30 -2:30 pm, the group participates in a range of activities (such as cooking, computing, cultural craft and creative activities), develops confidence, explores volunteering opportunities in the community and makes new friends. Join them!
In late 2014 the Community Centre produced a booklet recognising and honouring all their volunteers who had devoted their time and energy serving the community. The booklet shares some of the wonderful stories about their journeys and experiences at the Centre. Click on the link below to begin following their journey. Different stories will appear each term, so keep your eye on this space!
