Schools as Community Centres Program (SaCC)

The Schools as Community Centre (SaCC) Program at Ashcroft Public School commenced in December 2002. It was named The Beehive soon after and the logo was developed by one of our students as part of a naming competition.

The Program is funded by Families NSW which is a state government partnership between the Department of Education and Communities, Department of Health and Department of Communities. SaCC's operate like a community centre to support families raising children from birth to eight years in partnership with local human service agencies, the local community and the school. There are 45 SaCC programs all over NSW.

Over the years, we have aimed to provide a safe and friendly environment for children and families to play, interact and share positive experiences. Examples of programs held at the Beehive include supported playgroups, family excursions, parenting workshops and a transition to school program.

The Beehive is open Monday to Thursday.  Please contact Andrea Giunta our Facilitator on 8783 0951 if you require any further information.
