Busy bookworms heads north
Beginning in Term 3, 2019, Busy Bookworms will introduce a second venue for classes - St Michael’s Anglican Church in Carlton North. We are so excited to be bringing our classes to bookworms on the North side!
A whole new chapter for Busy Bookworms!
We're opening a new venue in Malvern! From Term 2 2018 onwards, classes will take place in St George's Church on Glenferrie Road. Our spacious new room has a beautiful leafy outlook and great facilities, with the convenience of onsite parking and a fantastic location close to many shops and cafes.
