Modified hours will operate from 6th July – 10th July : 9.30am – 1.30pm

Regular programs and opening hours will resume from Monday 13th July with restricted numbers and staggered starts to reduce foot traffic and allow for cleaning between programs.

Participants of term 1 programs will have received notifications for registering for term 3 programs via email. Once a place is offered, our preferred method of payment is either by credit card/eftpos or direct deposit. The eftpos machine will be covered and wiped clean after each use.

For the health and safety of all staff and participants, new protocols are in place which will be required to be adhered to:

  • Floor markers in reception for physical distancing
  • Kitchen access is closed
  • Foyer relaxation area and library is closed
  • All must adhere to the physical distancing guidelines throughout
  • Room signs displaying maximum number of people per space

A strict cleaning schedule will be implemented by staff and cleaners to ensure that all spaces and high touch zones are cleaned after every program. All staff have completed the COVID19 infection Control Training by DHS and the following policies and procedures are in place

  • COVID19 Outbreak Management
  • COVID19 Cleaning procedure
  • COVID19 Contact Tracing
  • Epidemic-Pandemic Policy

Social facility hire will not be available until further notice, however regular hirers will be contacted when the Committee of Governance deems it safe to reinstate their return. Regular hirers will be required to provide a COVID plan and adhere to the organisation’s guidelines.

We are looking forward to seeing you all back in the Centre soon.

Warm Regards
