City & Inner West Region – All Courses Cancelled
It is with regret that, due to the restrictions caused by the COVID-19 virus, we advise that from Wednesday, 18 March all classes, meetings, and activities in Sydney U3A have been cancelled until June 30, 2020. The closure will be reviewed towards the end of that period. The closure includes all courses in City & Inner West Region.
President’s Message – City & Inner West Region
Following the bulletin from Barbara Boston, Sydney U3A President sent on March 22 to all members for whom we have an email address, you will be aware that classes are now on hold until at least the end of June.
Though this decision was inevitable given the progress of the COVID-19 virus, and although we are in uncharted territory, we want you to know that behind the scenes we are working to put together the second semester Course Book, in preparation for resumption of classes as soon as this becomes possible.
We hope that as a group we can weather this storm and be able to meet in class before too long. We reinforce the reminder from Barbara Boston, Sydney U3A President, to stay in touch with U3A friends through whatever means available to you.
We will stay in touch with our monthly newsletter, and would welcome articles from members with interesting and hopefully uplifting tales overcoming this adversity. Many of our members have lived through wars, so I’m sure we’ll keep our Aussie sense of humour and live through the toilet paper shortage.
Rest assured, we will keep you advised of developments with regard to classes. Most of our members are on email now, but there are still some in the Inner West for whom we don’t have email addresses – we will do our best to communicate with these members by mail.
Our best wishes to you all, stay safe
President City & Inner West Region
