Report from the COVID 19 Working Group

Here we go again……..Melburnians may be  back in lockdown for six weeks, but U3A Port Phillip is firing up.

The COVID 19 Working Group still meets regularly and continues to work on strategies to keep members learning and socially connected. The Group has begun the process of developing a risk management strategy in response to the Port Phillip Council’s request for a Resumption Plan for Reusing Facilities. Caveat – we will not be resuming face to face classes in the foreseeable future.

The Working Group is delighted that Term 3 will have an increased number of classes. There are new classes and some of the perennial favourites, exercise classes and watercolour classes (we will emerge fitter and more creative).

The Working Group decided in May that with the use of webinars on Zoom the Saturday seminars could return. With two very successful seminars in Term 2 they continue with a vengeance in Term 3.

The Saturday seminar on 18 July, Writing historical biography: a labour of love or an act of madness? is a must for writers, history buffs and those who like a fascinating story.

The seminar on 15 August will focus on the controversial development of Fishermans Bend.
