Out to lunch

The Cobram Courier - - NEWS -

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!
