A festival of learning for people of all ages throughout the City of Wyndham for the week of September 1- 8
“In order to build a ‘learning community’ a culture that values, celebrates, supports and encourages learning throughout life needs to be fostered and facilitated.”
Wyndham Learning Community Strategy 2018-2023
Learning for All
Learning happens everywhere and is for every person of all ages. It is about how we gain new skills, information, perspectives and aspirations.
For the Early Years
The importance of learning and development of pre-school age children is significant, especially the role of play-based learning and pre-literacy practices.
For the School Years
Both inside and outside school activities are important for engaging school aged children in learning and their education for the future.
For Young Adults
Young people are looking to engage in meaningful study and employment that will equip them for life in the 21st century.
For Adults & Seniors
We continue to learn throughout our life and need to have opportunities of formal and informal learning whatever age, ability or locality we are in.
Stories of Learning
A Culinary Journey
My mum and I attended this event on Saturday. We were bowled over at not only how well it was run and organised but also an excellent presentation by Chef Ben D’Arcy. We were both inspired to cook all the dishes we watched being made and then tasting.
Multicultural Day at Wyndham Park PS
I was very happy because this was the first time I have played with little children at an Australian school. If the children keep playing this game, maybe another school will start teaching it. I think one day this game will become a popular game in Australia.

Opening Night at the Cultural Centre
How fit for purpose are our schools given that the workplaces of the future will need fewer ‘formula’ workers and more adaptive creative thinkers?
