The Circle Club

Our unique Circle Club offers community-hosted classes, programs and projects. It is called The Circle Club to reflect the nature of teaching and learning, from adult to child and child to adult.

The Circle Club is designed as an integrative learning experience between our broader community and our gorgeous young creatives who are seeking to know what they are capable of through unique, creative, individual or group experiences. Our Circle Club model is inspired by the University of the Third Age. 


The Circle Club is developed for children aged 3 – 18.

One program might be suitable for children aged 14 – 18, where others might be more suited to children aged 6-9, depending upon the childrens’ interests and capabilities.


The Tribe crystals 2017

For example, we are hosting fire-twirling, equine therapy, Lego, and circus skills… on top of literacy, numeracy, and making-time in our Maker-Space.

Once we’ve held our Plumping the Programs meet-up (see below), we will publish the timetable here for you too see and book sessions.

All sessions will be booked from this page.

Plumping the programs for The Circle Club

Plumping the Program is a meet-up where we invite you to plump up The Circle Club’s timetable!

Do you have any skills, knowledge, interests, passions, even projects you’d like to pass onto our younger creative generation? (everyone does, even if they believe they don’t!)

Are you an entrepreneur, do you know online media, do you have a passion for history or philosophy or literature, do you invent, or have solutions to ecological problems? Do you love mathematics, weaving, group singing, or want to help children form a band? Do you make clothes, write a blog, or have a passion for making raw desserts? (we’d be obliged to eat them tho!)

Friday 2nd Feb, 7.30pm at our campus at 6 Rainy Hill Rd, Cockatoo.

Participant numbers

The Circle Club’s programs may or may not be capped at a certain number of participants. If they are, this information will be on the booking form.

Parent stay

Parents stay to add value to the sessions.

Session times and dates

Operating every Wednesday, Thursday and Friday of the school term

from 9am – 4pm,

we have 12 sessions slots, which range from 30 minutes to three hours each per week.

Some programs might be one session long and may be, for example, a book reading and make-a-puppet show session, other programs or projects might be once a week for a month, and others for a whole term!


Any fees will depend upon the community facilitator, however SoCC will ensure all club programs are accessible by everyone. Most sessions will cost only $5 per child per session.


Bookings will be made here very soon (we’re updating the page at the moment!), and fees paid at the time of booking. Installments that suit your needs are available for families with concession cards, under private arrangement.


Where a whole family will be away for three or more consecutive sessions, families will be offered a refund on the fees paid for the period of absence. During that time, we will invite another family to participate. However, refunds are not offered for irregularly missed sessions or for sessions we have decided to cancel due to bush fire risk.

Where we are

Our campus is at 6 Rainy Hill Road, Cockatoo. We occupy the new building.

What to bring

Requirements for The Circle Club’s programs will differ… some may need gumboots, others helmets, others one’s own instrument.

As a general guideline, we ask all children bring:

  • gumboots all year round
  • two complete changes of clothes for children and adults
  • sun hats during terms 1 and 4, and beanies during terms 2 and 3
  • warm, wind and waterproof jackets and pants during terms 2 and 3
  • food, and
  • medications if needed.

All bags including changes of clothes can be stored in the pigeon holes inside the front entrance of the building.

Carrying mobile phones

We ask all parents carry their operable mobile phones with them at all times (maybe in a bum-bag or zipped pocket). We do this so we can be sure we can contact each other on the rare occasion we are separated, and so we each have access to emergency services if needed.
