WITH the new year now in full swing, now is the time to learn a new skill, and with a range of programs available through South Shepparton Community Centre’s term 1 and 2 activities, there is nothing stopping you.

Among many other options available, the community can learn to develop their job searching, resume building, job applications, personal presentation and take part in mock interviews through the ‘Develop Your Job Skills’ program.

The centre has also introduced some new programs this year including ‘Mosaics for Beginners,’ where you can learn how to work with mosaics, including how to design your own masterpiece; cut tiles, grout and complete your project, ‘Music and Movements,’ where instructors hold weekly sessions where mums, dads or carers can come along with their young children for a morning of making new friends, stories, music and movement in a relaxed social setting.

Another new program is ‘Morning Melodies,’ which offers a great social outing for adults who like to listen to music, with two experienced musicians, it is sure to bring some cheer to those who are isolated or lonely.

South Shepparton Community Centre manager, Dawn Taylor said, “Whether you are looking to learn a new skill or just have a little company, there are many programs that we offer that will be sure to suit anybody.

“We also have a ‘Respite Room,’ where you can come inside, get out of the heat, rain or cold, relax and have a cuppa.”

To find out about these or any other programs running at South Shepparton Community Centre, drop in and visit them at 11 Service Street, Shepparton or phone 5821 6172.
