U3A Ringwood

U3A Ringwood has developed a CovidSafe Plan for how  our classes and activities are conducted during the Covid19 pandemic. 

Our plan is aimed at making our activities safe for you and to ensure that all members know what is required of them.

Some timetable adjustments have been necessary to meet Covid19 restrictions. Fortunately, we have been able to retain the same day, same start and finish time, and same venue for all classes originally listed to be held at Parkwood (only the classroom is changed), with the exception of ‘National Affairs’, ‘International Affairs’ and ‘Elders and the Law’. Due to the number of members enrolled exceeding the capacity of the rooms at Parkwood, these classes have been relocated to the Kevin Pratt Pavilion at their usual time on their usual day, vis:

  • International Affairs: Monday at 9.30 – 11.00am, in the Downstairs room conducted on the 2nd Monday then alternate Mondays)

  • National Affairs: Monday at 9.30 – 11.00am, in the Downstairs room (conducted on the 1st Monday then alternate Mondays)

  • Elders and the Law: Wednesday at 1.30 – 3.00pm in the Upstairs room

Note: The Kevin Pratt Pavilion is located within the Mullum Reserve, at 58 – 60 Mullum Mullum Road Ringwood North, VIC 3134 (this venue is also signed as the ‘Norwood Sporting Club’).

Online Classes

Some class leaders may decide, from time to time,  that it will be best to run their class on-line using Zoom. The members enrolled in these classes will be advised directly about how to join their class online.

Suspended Classes

If a class is suspended it will recommence when permitted within the applicable COVID19 restrictions.

Revised Class timetable

The revised class timetable is available online here and in print friendly format here.

Contact Tracing Requirements

Everyone needs to record their attendance using the QR code at each location.

If you have a suitable smartphone you must install and use the Victorian Government’s Services Victoria app. You can download the Services Victoria app from the App Store (for Apple smart phones) or Google Play (for Android smart phones). It’s free to download.

If you do not have a suitable smartphone, or  you have problems using the Services Victoria app, then ask another member to assist you.

If that fails then use our computer tablets, available in each classroom, to electronically check-in for contact tracing purposes. These tablets use the Victorian Government’s QR Kiosk facility that does not require you to use cameras or know QR location codes.

Paper forms are no longer acceptable.

Finally

Should you have any questions or need clarification on any issue you can email the Committee at info@u3aringwood.org.au.
