. Message from U3APP President 7 March 2021

To all Members of U3A Port Phillip

In the December 2020 copy of this bulletin, I advised members of the hope that a limited number of classes would be able to resume as face to face events in term 2 of this year.  As the situation currently stands this is a real possibility and there are now steps being put in place to make this a reality.

As a first step, from 15 March until 1 April a Pilot Program will commence at the Mary Kehoe Centre to validate our COVIDSafe Procedures.  A number of Tutors have agreed to be “the guinea pigs” for this Pilot Program and I want to thank them for their support and cooperation.  The list of these Pilot Face-2-Face Courses can be found below.

Due to limited room availability and capacities, and due to Tutor requests, not all Courses will return to Face-2-Face in term 2.  Those Courses with various difficulties in being run online, such as music, art, etc have been the primary focus.  The details of the term 2 Face-2-Face Courses will be announced in April.

To assist members generally, the Office at MKC will be open during the Pilot Program.  For the safety of all, please follow our COVIDSafe Conditions of Entry on every visit to MKC.  Stay well.

Regards, Graham Gosling - President U3APP
