Axe Creek Playgroup

Come and meet some friendly faces at Axe Creek Playgroup.
We are a community run playgroup that provides a friendly and relaxed play space for adults to talk and kids to play.

We meet once a week, during the school term, in the Old School Building at the Eppalock Primary School. (Dates for 2023 to be confirmed) The building has just been renovated, allowing for an easy accessible play space. We also have access to the newly developed outdoor play area at the school.

Cost a gold coin donation or if you would prefer $10 a term or $40 for the year. This is to help with the cost of tea and coffee and any special activities the group may do.

It is BYO snacks and once the school starts receiving their fruit delivery we will also provide some fruit to share.

We look for to seeing you at Axe Creek Playgroup

Temporary Election Jobs Available

Elections are a fundamental part of our democratic process in Australia and require around 100,000 temporary workers.
Pay ranges from $25.54 to $48.29 per hour, depending on the job.

Working at elections

The Federal election will be held on Saturday 21st May 2022 and the AEC needs to be ready to employ around 100,000 people right across Australia.

Most jobs are working in polling places on election day, but there are also jobs before election day, such as working in early voting centres, outposted centres and mobile polling. People are also needed after election day to help count votes, manage election materials and complete a range of administration tasks.

COVID-19 safety measures will be in place at polling places and other workplaces to protect AEC workers and voters.
