About Us

Sanctuary Point Connect was opened in 2006 and is currently facilitated by Christine McInerney Percy.


The centre is part of the Schools as Community Centres (SaCC) project which uses a community development approach to link families with their local schools.


There are 46 SaCCs based in public schools around the State, providing a range of projects.  Schools as Community Centres are provided by the NSW Department of Education and Training, as part of Families NSW.

See the Department of Education and Training website for more information.
