Mobil Altona Terminal continues to support projects in the local community with the most recent being the new Altona North Community House, which was officially opened on Tuesday 4 October at an event attended by key community stakeholders.
Mobil Altona Terminal has made a significant contribution to the fit out of this centre, which will provide much needed support for community members through educational opportunities such as English language classes and technology classes for seniors.
The Altona North Community House is the first centre of its kind in Altona North. The project was initiated by Williamstown Community and Education Centre’s (WCEC) CEO Mark Brophy upon identifying a need for a similar community centre offering these services in Altona North, after seeing that many students were coming to them from the area.
English classes have already commenced at the centre, transitioning from a temporary space at the Altona North Library. Technology classes will start once the computer room is up and running.
John Bourke, South Asia Pacific Operations Manager attended the event and addressed guests. “Mobil Altona Terminal and the Williamstown Community and Education Centre have worked together many times over the years on projects that are important to the community. We were thrilled to work together again to help bring the Altona North Community House to life.
“The Altona North Community House will play an important role in the lives of many locals, delivering quality adult education programs, as well as a space for other community classes, programs, and initiatives.”
John said, “Thanks to WCEC President Sonja Ilievska and CEO Mark Brophy for the tireless work done to bring this project to fruition.”
