Turning SA schools into community centres

A series of videos have been released highlighting SA state government’s proposal to transform its schools into hubs that enhance community engagement through sharing its facilities for sport, health services, community college and cultural events.

The videos feature a group of schools who discuss how they initiated the concept and now successfully use their sites to hold a range of programs and activities which align with community needs and goals.

Feedback previously sought from schools and governing councils on how this can best be achieved will be used to create a resource to guide schools, community groups and sectors to look at how best to open up school facilities to be accessible to everyone.

The Schools as Community Hubs project has a statewide action group with representatives from local and state government, community organisations, sporting groups and principal associations.
