School holiday lessons + School holiday program
School holidays are just around the corner and we've teamed up with The Art Factory Chatswood to provide a school holiday program to engage the kids creatively and give them an opportunity to get more exercise too.
The program will run from 10am - 4pm (then Chungdo TKD students can book into existing 4/4.30pm classes) and will cover:
I will let you know how to book over the weekend. Places will be limited.
In addition, we will run all scheduled classes during the school holidays.
Easing of restrictions July 1
On July 1, the NSW Government has said restrictions on contact sports will be lifted.
Our view is that Covid19 is still out there so we need to maintain vigilance. (See previous updates for the details, they haven't changed). The health concerns are paramount but speaking frankly we, like the general economy, will not weather a second shutdown as well as we managed to weather the first one (thank you to everyone who stuck with us during the shutdown!).
In addition, the grading we just completed last Sunday was the highest scoring grading we remember seeing.
It was encouraging to see the persistence of our students who trained online during shutdown and the effectiveness of our online program.
As a result we will continue with the current program and timetable (with some tweaks).
Resumption of Lindfield and Beacon Hill
Lindfield is due to kick off next Saturday 4th July, Beacon Hill 25th July.
I completed the CovidSafe plan for our Community Sports venues (i.e. School halls) today and will send them to the various principals over the weekend.
At this stage an opening date for Beacon Hill is all I've got. I'll let you know more on Beacon Hill once Steve and I figure it out.
Lindfield's Public School has some specific requirements which include parents leaving the school grounds during the class:
Lindfield's timetable was tricky.
At this stage we are opening with a 16 person capacity per class with 2 instructors and have the following times.
10am 4-6 year old fundamentals
10.30am White belt to green tip focus (higher belts can attend if there's space but we will focus on skills up to green tip)
11.15am Green belt and above
We'll see how it goes with attendance, restrictions and Covid19.
Gary (one of our adult students who just tested for black belt) mentioned going back to revise the white belt pattern Chonji and the earlier patterns is harder now that he's more experienced, because he realises how much he's been getting wrong.
If there's space I encourage those green belt and higher to also attend the junior belt class. That goes for all our belt level classes, unlike other schools we don't penalise you and charge you extra for wanting to train more. So train more.
