Welcome to Term 1 2022

Dear U3AAW members

Welcome to Term 1 2022 commencing on Friday 28th January.

This U3AAW year is shaping up to be one of fun and laughter in comparison to the past two. Our wonderful volunteer tutors are raring to go and our facilities at the GAAC are being further enhanced for your comfort.

Your Committee is fully aware of the Covid risk situation and the regulations pertaining to it in our plan to return to face to face classes.

Our primary concern is your health both physical and psychological and while we have insisted on members being double vaccinated to attend face to face we understand your possible hesitancy to commit to personal contact in the light of the surge in the Omicron variant locally.

We are confident that with adherence to the current Covid-19 regulations, that is vaccination, mask wearing, sanitising, social distancing, QR coding and also booster vaccinations that we can return to face to face contact in February with a reasonable degree of safety.

Please understand that the scientific data from millions of people worldwide clearly indicates that a third booster vaccination is necessary to lessen the risk of serious infections, this may be mandated by the State Government in the near future.

Please get your BOOSTER vaccination.

Please if you are unwell stay home, get tested and isolate until you have a negative result. You don’t want to be infecting your fellow members.

Class lists and specific instructions will be emailed after the Registration and enrolment session on the morning of Friday 28th January and your Tutor will send you relevant information such as ZOOM links.

PLEASE Read your emails regularly and respond if necessary. !!!

Please refer to the website and NEWS section for general updates.

Yours with a smile !

Pres. U3AAW
