Students from Yarraville Community Centre’s Adult Migrant English Program (AMEP) enjoyed an excursion across town to the Dandenong National Park to round off the term.
The AMEP is a Federal Government funded initiative aimed at helping new migrants learn English and become familiar with Australia and how people live.
Planning and going on excursions are arranged to help students understand how to move around on public transport as well as to help them learn and become familiar with Melbourne and surrounding areas.
Students and YCC staff caught the train from Footscray to Upper Ferntree Gully before climbing the 1,000 steps. Students enjoyed each other’s’ company and appreciated getting some exercise in the Australian bush.
YCC provides programs and services for individuals from a broad cross section of the community with a strong emphasis on the disadvantaged, families, youth, and new and emerging communities. Programs and services include education and training, childcare, disability programs, short courses and workshops and youth.
