Recently I had a great opportunity to visit The Basin Community House, where Heather, the house manager, was kind enough to show me around. The Basin Community House is a member of the Knox Learning Alliance and provides free or low-cost adult education and community development programs to the residents of Knox. They are very fortunate to have such a strong and diverse base of trainers and support staff to assist in their courses. The commitment from their volunteer team is absolutely terrific. It was very obvious during my visit just how much passion they have for supporting vulnerable individuals and the wider community. Their offerings extend far and wide. I was especially impressed with their employment skills pathway, a course for offenders undertaking community work orders from the courts. I would like to commend the team for winning the state Learn Local Pre-accredited Program Award in 2021 for their work with the disability support organisation, Tasty Az. Congratulations.
I would also like to quickly mention the great work of Channel 31, which has recently launched its new community TV streaming service, CTV Plus. It is already online, and you can watch all your favourite community television shows for free. I highly recommend it. Everybody, check it out.
