DUE TO COVID our classes were suspended until the end of the year. Classes will resume at the start of Term 1, as below. Our membership demographic could be described as vulnerable, but we have a Covid Safe plan in place to maximise member safety. That plan includes restricting attendance to only fully Covid vaccinated people. Tutors will ask to see proof of vaccination status (or a medical exemption certificate) at the first class attended in each course.
