2017 Golf Day at Woodlands Golf Course

A very different year for us this year as we had perfect weather! Last year will go down in all our memories as the year of horizontal rain and gale force winds BUT every single golfer turned up and played 18 holes!!!

 This year was amazing with so many wonderful people who turned up to play golf and stayed for dinner. We were absolutely thrilled that a large contingent of our parent body joined us on the night for a three course meal, loud and silent auctions and the chance to listen to Mark Allen (ex golfer and now presenter on SEN) tell us his golfing stories.

Golf Day 2015

We are very excited to announce we have another golf day next year. It will be on Friday 13th March at Woodlands Golf Course. Please keep this day free for golf and join us for dinner and entertainment in the evening. More details soon.

Interactive TV

We are constantly being amazed and excited at the limitless potential of the interactive tv we recently purchased. The children are constantly challenged by the educational programs we are able to resource. Thank you to all those who helped in one way or another to fund raise for this fantastic tool.

Holiday Program April 2014

Our first day of the program Tuesday 8th April was a fun art/craft day at our centre. The children made a few things to take home, as well as participating in games and activities.

Our next day is Thursday 10th April when we plan to take the children to Puffing Billy. Fingers crossed for a fine day.

World Autism Day 2014

Wednesday 2nd April is World Autism Day and we are celebrating by asking all staff and children to dress for fun that day.Of course clown outfits are a great idea, but there are lots of other ways to "have fun" so be as creative as you like. In Melbourne, Sunday 6th April, World Autism Day will be recognised by having a fun day at Luna Park! Tickets must be purchased before the event @ $10 a head.Children are free.

Fun Golf Day 2014

We had a fantastic day on Friday 28th March 2014 when parents, friends and staff got together for a day of golf at Sandhurst Golf Club. Beautiful weather and a fun filled atmosphere. We are extremely grateful to all who gave so generously and we now have a magnificent interactive TV and a sensory room because of them! Sincere thanks to all  those who joined us - whether for golf or just dinner at night - and we invite you to note that another day will be organised in 2015 so PLEASE COME!!!


As much as it is an American custom, we have to admit it was great fun seeing all our ghosties and ghoulies making their entrance into our centre! Thanks to all our mums and dads for dressing their kids and making 31st October so much fun!
