Details of courses planned for term 4 of 2021 can be viewed below. From Monday 18 October, U3A Bathurst begins to emerge from a long lockdown. Venues will begin to open, but some classes will continue to be delivered virtually, and some groups have decided to suspend classes because of the difficulty of speaking and hearing through masks. You still need to wear a mask to all face-to-face classes, and until 1 December you and your facilitators must provide evidence of having received two anti-COVID-19 injections, or proof of one injection and of an appointment for a second injection, to be permitted to enter any venue. However, people with proof of medical exemptions from the vaccinations should also be admitted. There should be no more than twenty people attending any one class. Some venues may impose additional requirements for entry. That is their right. The situation is very fluid at present, so if you have any doubts about venues or classes, please contact the venue or your course facilitator.

Manuel Pro’s Spanish classes will continue to be delivered via Zoom. His group will assess the effect of the new regime on a week-by-week basis. Jenny Maclennan’s French and German classes will continue to be delivered by email. Wendy Casey’s Just Write and Rhonda Henry’s Stitch ‘n’ Chat are suspended for the time being. Graham West will continue to contact Writing Your Own Story group via email. Metaphysics and Mysteries, Philosophy and Current Affairs will not recommence until the doffing of masks is permitted in Panthers. At present the projected date for the beginning of mask-free classes in Panthers is 1 December.

There were a few modifications to the course information which was distributed earlier:
– Carla Archer’s Invisible Romans is normally on Tuesday from 2-3pm
– Jennifer Edmonson’s Art Attack added an extra class – on Wednesdays 1-4pm at the Bridge Club
– Judith Henderson’s Mah Jong is normally on Monday 10am-1pm at the Girl Guides Hall.

The 2021 Calendar is available for download.
