Schools as Community Centres (SaCC) is a NSW government interagency program that supports the transition of students to school and the early participation of families into school activities. The SaCC assists families with children 0-8 years through a community development approach.
The primary focus of the SaCC program is to enhance the early development outcomes of children birth to 8 years through the holistic approach outlined in the Framework. The focus on the early development of children is based on well-established evidence that the first years of a child's life are crucial for setting the foundation for life-long health and learning outcomes.
Parents are encouraged to be connected to their children and their community through attending: Supported Playgroup, Young Parent’s Group, Kindy Gym and the Transition to School Playgroup. Other programs successfully implemented to benefit students and families include:
The Book for Boori Project (Early Literacy Program) for Aboriginal families with children
The Aboriginal Homework Club in partnership with Barnardos
The Multicultural Playgroup in partnership with Queanbeyan Multicultural Centre
Queanbeyan Public School Community acknowledges the Ngunnawal people as the first caretakers of this land and respectfully recognises their continuing connection to the land, mountains, waters and community.
