It’s a social hub. It’s also a great place to come and learn
, even when it’s busy there are always quiet places you can go and learn. You can also get help and reading recommendations.”

Luigi, Year 10

You can find out stuff you didn’t know. You can do anything!
There’s even Tinkering so you can learn to sew, learn new skills”

It has opened my mind.
