Movie Day: Once a month a movie day is held in Sydney at the Hoyts theatre in George Street. This is an opportunity to travel into the city and make new friendships.
Be Connected: Technology is ever changing and it can be tricky to keep up with. Our program, Be Connected, could be the technical support you need. If you understand computers and just need a bit of help follow this link to online tutorials.
