Yarrunga Early Leaning Centre supports children to develop connections with their local community by actively engaging with it through our Community Connections Program. We often go for walks around our neighborhood and on the paths which surround Yarrunga, to one of the many walking bridges, parks or the train station. We plan excursions within the community, to the Library Museum or MAMA (Murray Art Museum Albury), Wonga Wetlands, Borella House and Eastern Hill.
Yarrunga educators and children, along with our Sustainability Officer regularly visit the Teacup Community Gardens in Broad Street where we have our own garden bed. Additionally, we support our community by participating in a range of community events and fundraisers such as Clean Up Australia Day, Daffodil Day and Give me 5 for Kids Pajama day.
Yarrunga invites local community members such as fire fighters, ambulance, police, librarians, Halve Waste, local animal hospitals etc to share their role in the community. Wiradjuri language and cultural sessions are held weekly by a wonderful local Wiradjuri Community member.
