Embedding the Hub in the school - Return Serve

Return Serve is a not for profit organisation offering free tennis lessons (for a gold coin donation) to all ages and competency levels. It aims to promote a strong community spirit by calling on parents of students to perform support roles as helpers. The challenge is creating incentive for parents or community members to support the initiative and commit to helping out, due to the nature of Return Serve being a volunteer-run service.

St Francis College Community Hub – My experiences with its evolution (by Tammie Usher)

The St Francis College Hub Leader, Tammie Usher, felt very privileged to be invited to speak at the Logan: City of Choice Initiative, which attracted more than 1,000 residents, community members, non-government and business sector leaders and local state and federal government representatives held in August 2014. The participants explored five social themes that influence local neighbourhoods: Housing, Employment, Safety, Social Infrastructure and Education. In addition to the five key themes, there was also a focus on transport, cultural diversity and community engagement to improve connectivity, social cohesion and place-based decision-making. Tammie delivered a speech about the achievements she has been observing at her Community Hub.
