This term in addition to the adult program, Keeping Love Alive, we are running two Connect 3 programs and Bright Thinking for 8 -12 year olds and Link3d Up for 13 - 16 year olds. Most of these programs commenced the first week of term and were fully booked before Christmas.
This highlights the need to book early, or register your interest, especially for the children's programs. We will then contact you immediately we know the dates the program will next run and offer you first, the opportunity to join the group before they are advertised on our website.
We plan to run the Connect 3, Bright Thinking and Link3d Up programs in Term 2 subject to sufficient participants and availability of facilitators. Click here for more details about each of these groups.
