In June 2020 we took responsibilities for the Live Wires Program. Previously delivered by Concern, it is a much loved after school and holiday program activity for primary school aged children on the Collingwood Housing Estate. It has been supporting and engaging children for 15 years.
Live Wires is a community development program. It seeks to build the resilience of children the resilience and creativity and enhance learning of Collingwood’s children. Live Wires provides healthy meals, creative and expressive outlets, recreational and sports activities, play-based approaches to numeracy and literacy, and peer leadership programs. Drummond street and the drum youth service are excited to continue to support children by providing them with opportunities to regulate their emotions, feel safe and create avenues for improved trust.
As of Term 4, 2020 the After-School Program will run on Wednesday and Thursday from 3.30 to 6pm at the Collingwood Neighbourhood House.
