A very successful community lunch was held last Friday at Cobram Community House.
Celebrating Adult Learners’ Week, the lunch saw more than 40 people gather to enjoy freshly made soup and rice dishes, expertly served by Cobram Secondary College students.
In the presence of Moira Shire Mayor Gary Cleveland, community members came to enjoy lunch, conversation and good company.
U3A president Ruth Ritchie gave an overview of U3A activities and outings and Rob Butler of the Cobram Men’s Shed filled us all in with the activities of the ‘shedders’.
Following lunch, the regular Cyber Seniors group had a presentation and Q&A session with Centrelink representatives, investigating the possibilities associated with MyGov accounts.
A reminder that the community lunches are held on the first Friday of each month and are open to anyone in the community.
●Cobram Secondary College VCAL students are currently taking on a range of short, employment-focused courses to extend their skills and employment options post-secondary school.
First Aid, RSA, RSG and Hygiene for Food Handlers are being delivered to the students through financial support provided by Cobram Youth Foundation.
This project gives students a strong skill set with which to head out to employment, nicely complementing their academic studies — all made possible by a great local partnership.
●Talking of short courses, Cobram Community House has a combined Introductory/Intermediate Computers program, which has just commenced.
There are still a few places available so jump on the phone and give the house a call if you are interested — they guarantee you’ll learn something new!
