Term 1 2020 at Yarrunga

What's happening at Yarrunga Community Centre?

Do you live in Croydon Hills, Croydon, Warranwood, Ringwood, Mooroolbark or Chirnside Park and are looking for a range of health and wellbeing, art and craft, social groups or educational programs?

We have a number of health and wellbeing classes including yoga, tai chi, pilates, strength training for seniors and interval training. We also have cooking, social groups, on-line training and more.

What's extra exciting in term 1?

 If you're interested in coffee making, we have a Barista taster course. If you want to take your coffee making skills further you can enrol in a longer Barista course, and if you already have Barista skills that need brushing up, try our personal Barista training sessions.   

If you're more interested in art/craft try our  programs in paintingwoodwork or jewellery making.

If you're interested in health and wellbeing we have beginner courses in Tai Chi and Pilates and a new yoga class on Saturday mornings. 

We also have an exciting new program - Introduction to Event Management - where you can gain practical experience by helping to organise our 'Look What I Can Do Art and Craft Market'.

Our 2020 Term 1 Short Course and Activity Guide is available now to download.
