Dandenong South Primary School Hub


Dandenong South Primary School Hub

About this Hub

Dandenong South Primary School’s enrolment consists largely of children from families of low socio-economic status and of a language background other than English. This translates to 85% of our students having origins outside of Australia and speaking approximately 33 different languages, with the predominant cultural background being Albanian. Around 20% of our students also hold refugee status with many of these students having had little or no previous schooling.

The Dandenong South Primary School Community Hub provides a safe and supportive, easily accessible venue for the delivery of a coordinated and tailored package of services. The Hub act as a bridge, linking mothers, their children and their extended family, to the wider community and the network of services and programs available to support families in the City of Greater Dandenong.  The aim of the Hub is to bolster social cohesion, language, literacy and learning outcomes for isolated migrant parents and their children; and in turn, assist with the children’s transition to pre-school and school. There is also the ability to case manage individual families by providing more personalised support when required.
