Preparing for reopening
Term 3 will see many of our classes back in action. To meet Government requirements there are limits on group sizes and social distancing will apply. There will be some delay before all activities can return such as singing groups and playgroups but we are getting closer.
There will be strict hygiene requirements for all and you’ll need to self exclude if you are feeling unwell or have been in contact with someone who has COVid-19.
We will confirm our plans as soon as possible and look forward to welcoming our wonderful community members back through the doors soon.
