. Message from U3APP President, Graham Gosling, 17 May 2020

Dear U3APP Members 

I hope this message finds you all well and engaged with all of our online Courses and activities.  Our Tutors and Coordinators continue to do a remarkable job.  Participation rates are well into the 70% range, and the feedback is that everyone has adapted extremely well to this new environment.

Port Phillip Council has advised us that all of its community facilities will remain closed for the foreseeable future, and a reopening will not be considered before the end of June.  I believe that this date is very optimistic, and Members should expect that there is a real possibility that face-to-face classes will nt recommence before August, or later.  Even then there will be significant restrictions in place and other hurdles to be overcome.  Social distancing requirements alone makes it very difficult to accommodate students in any of the class rooms used by U3APP.

In the meantime, please continue to log in through our website to Zoom your respective activities and enjoy the camaraderie of your fellow Members and Tutors.

Stay safe, well and happy.  

Graham Gosling - President U3APP
