English for new Kiwis:
Beginners will quickly improve their English skills with our intensive daytime classes. Night classes help English in the workplace and intermediate level fluency and pronunciation. New Zealand residents’ fees are subsidised.
Stay in great shape:
Yoga, Pilates and Tai Chi are among the most popular classes held at Parnell Community Centre. Look out for our new Dancing Qigong classes on Wednesday nights. For an active workout to great music, join The Art of Dance with Merenia.
Discover a hidden talent as you learn or build on your skills from our drawing, flower arranging, calligraphy, knitting and illustrating classes. Look out for our new canvas painting and flax weaving classes.
