Re-Opening Update


Notice to our Community

I hope everyone is travelling well and finding some relief with the easing of some restrictions. It has been a challenging time for everyone but our community has amazed us with their resilience and ability to connect via new means. It has certainly made us think out of the box in relation to connecting with our families and friends.

With that said, you may have heard and read the latest communications in the media and from Victorian Government in relation to community centres reopening from June 1 with guidelines. While we are very much looking forward to seeing you all again, we will be taking a slow and steady approach before reopening our doors.

The Committee of Governance and I have decided not to open our Centre for the remainder of this term. Many of you have taken up the opportunity to attend our predominantly free online programs and we will continue to operate in this format until the end of term.

The next expected update for a further easing of restrictions is June 22 and we will await the confirmation to allow indoor exercise programs to return to face-to-face delivery. We will advise all participants when re-enrolments for term 3 open, and we ask you to be patient until this information has been issued to you.

We also understand that some of you may not be ready to return to face-to-face classes and we will be taking expressions of interest to hold some of the health and wellbeing programs online – if you think this applies to you, please email Nadine at info@yarrunga.org.au with details of the class you currently belong to.

In the meantime, we will be establishing policies and procedures in accordance with government requirements to ensure that we are ready to open for term 3.

Things will look a little different and there will be new procedures to follow, but this is to keep all of our staff, tutors and participants as safe and healthy as we can.

We can’t wait to see you … so hang in there just a little longer!

Warm regards

Sam Blackwell
