Schools as Community Centres

Harmony House - Schools as Community Centres Project

Auburn SaCC is a service for parents and families who have children from birth to eight years of age. It is called Schools as Community Centres Project. The project values the parent as the first teacher of the child and it provides initiatives for parents with young children. The SACC project is a link between the school and the community.  Outreach initiatives are provided in a few other schools in Auburn.
