New! Outreach Program


fkaCS is proud to announce our new Outreach Program, available to active Education and Care Service members and Other Organisation Members from March 2019.

For an additional $200 per membership year, the Multicultural Resource Centre Outreach Program will deliver a selection of books and resources to your service once a term via our Mobile Resource Service. This also includes collection of the resources from your service at the end of each term.

With over 70 languages available and 1,000+ resources to choose from, our specialist Pedagogy and Practice Consultants will select resources based on the individual needs of children within your service to use during the term. That's 4 unique packages delivered to your service door (and collected) per year!
