Welcome to 2016

Farewell 2015
MACE began as a neighbourhood House in 1975 – 40 years ago.
Last year, 2015, gave us the opportunity to reflect on the integral presence and influence MACE has had within the Mansfield Community over the past 4 decades.

MACE continues its role in supporting local Community groups, (some that had their very beginnings at MACE) including; Mmuds, Line Dancing, Mansfield Lifeball, Table Tennis, Patchwork and Quilting, Mansfield Men’s Shed, and Gadhaba Local Indigenous Network (GLIN).
Our Community Childcare Centre – Cubby House, finished 2015 with an outstanding result in their state government assessment achieving the coveted outcome of Exceeding. We will strive to maintain and improve our already exceedingly good Childcare services in 2016.

Looking Forward – 2016
MACE will have a strong focus on continuing and strengthening its presence within the Mansfield Community in offering courses, programs and events for and in partnership with businesses, students, clubs and hobby groups.
MACE is committed to providing excellent opportunities for personal learning in the areas of; wellbeing (yoga, meditation, Tai Chi), general interest (Spanish cookery, welding, digital photography, bee keeping), alongside short courses (Auslan, adult literacy, English tuition and entry level computer and iPhone/iPad devices).

Our Community Services programs in Aged Care, Home and Community Care (HACC) and Diploma in Community Services Work continue to see our local people become trained and qualified in careers that are in demand.
Our TAE Training and Assessment course continues to be well attended and affords opportunity for career transitions for many.
First Aid, Forklift, Farm Chemical, 1080, Chainsaw and hospitality short courses offered by MACE and in partnership with The Centre (Wangaratta), continue to service the local community with much needed training for entry-level employment opportunities in 2016.

In Closing
Both I and staff at MACE will continue to explore, innovate and create programs that are relevant and meaningful to our community, offering pathways to employment, personal growth, personal health and well-being into the future.
On behalf of the Board of Management, staff and myself, I would like to thank all of the Mansfield Community for their support over the past 40 years and in the coming year.
Kevin Vivian, Executive Officer
