Building up a network and making friends

The Hungry Mind

Located just behind the  school,  The Hungry Mind community and activities centre is a home away from home. It is a place for the newly arrived families to connect with the local community. The Hungry Mind is a non-profit organization offering a variety of activities and events to children and adults. They provide a warm welcome to everyone who walks into the clubhouse where many languages are spoken.

Great coffee and delicious cake!

All ages, nationalities and cultures are welcome. The Hungry Mind organizes a wide range of activities, so no matter what you are interested in there will be something for you or your family. To see the full range of activities please consult their website or Facebook page
