Community Learning Centre

Community Learning Centres are partnerships that provide a range of services and activities, often beyond the school day, to help meet the needs of learners, their families, and the wider community. Their aim is to support the holistic development of citizens and communities. Learn more about the JLHS Community Learning Centre by visiting our CLC page.
