From the Course Admin Team

COVID-19 has forced us into a number of changes, including postponing our first Four O’Clock Forum, closing the Hub with its beautiful new painted walkways, as well as moving back to Zoom for a number of classes. If you need a refresher on using Zoom – or need to get started for the first time, read on for some training coming up next week.

Four O’Clock Forums

It was unfortunate that we had to postpone our first Forum ‘Simians to Cyborgs’, which was to have been held this coming Wednesday. We hope to reschedule this Forum at a later date. Members who had enrolled for the Forum on Wednesday 28 July will be notified of the new date.

The next scheduled Forum ‘Filmmaking’ with Winston Furlong (pictured) will be held on Wednesday 28 August. Winston, who is a film director and producer, will talk about abandoning his successful career as a engineer for the precarious world of independent filmmaking. There are still vacancies so if you would like to enrol; the course code is 21AAFOR2 on our member database.

Zoom classes

During this latest lockdown a number of our Leaders have decided to take their class onto Zoom for the rest of Term 3. If you happen to be on a waitlist for Yoga or an Exercise class you might like to join one of these classes. Yoga is listed under Yvonne’s Zoom class whilst the others are under their current title with ‘Zoom’ added at the end.

Forgotten how to use Zoom (or haven’t ever used it)?

Sessions for members looking for the basics will be held on:

  • Monday 26 July 1:00 pm to 2:30 pm
  • Tuesday 27 July 1:00 pm to 2:30 pm
  • Wednesday 28 July 1:00 pm to 2:30 pm

These sessions will all be the same so you only need to attend one. In each session, you’ll get comfortable using Zoom and learn how to mute and unmute, ask questions, manage how you view other people and get some tips on using Zoom effectively.

No need to register, just turn up!

Painted walkways at the Hub

In the previous Update we showed some of our members involved in painting the walkways leading up to the Hub from the car park. The finished product is shown above. Make sure when we return to the Hub you have a look at these gorgeous images. It’s starting to feel like home!

2022 classes

If you are thinking you might like to take a class next year, now is the time to let me know. You don’t need to be a trained teacher to take a class, just have a passion to share your knowledge with others.

Live Learn Enjoy
