Welcome to our webpages and engage in "life" at Span
Span Community House is a dynamic hub of learning and support in the heart of Thornbury. As well as offering activities to learn, thrive and engage in life to all ages and all abilities, Span also provide and encourage community development and sustainable living education and practice.
We offer a diverse range of programs, covering areas from cooking to computers, jewellery making to gardening. We work in partnership with local businesses and organisations to offer skills development, pathways to further study or employment, and activities for fun and information.
Come along and find out what services are available in your neighbourhood and join in an activity to find the support, relaxation or learning you need.
We look forward to seeing you at Span – It’s your house!
Span may at times change class dates so that we achieve the minimum number of students. After checking our brochure, Facebook and the "What's On" section in the local newspaper we recommend calling us direct to enquire about the course that you are interested in. You can also refer to our What's On page for new course or events on offer.
