PCYC

With both groups vitally concerned with the youth of the local community, it is natural that Durack should form a relationship with the Inala PCYC in Swallow St.  Some groups attend activities there as arranged and the PCYC provided many Durack children with Before-School and After-School care. Phone (07) 3372 2222 for more information.
