Community Hub activityThe Community Hubs Program is based in primary schools. It aims to support migrant and refugee families (including children 0 to 5 years of age) by offering meaningful social activities, as well as access to support services, including local education, health, community and settlement services.

Homework Club Tutors are required at various locations in Bankstown, Cumberland, Parramatta, Blacktown and Fairfield. Attendance is required at a minimum of two homework club sessions per fortnight. Times and days will vary across hubs.
