From the Course Admin team

The end of Term 1 arrived very quickly with the Course Admin team checking that the attendance lists would be as up-to-date as possible for Term 2. We have included a list of classes that still have vacancies if you would like to try something new.

Why is my name not on the class list?

Remember if your name is not on the class list you need to come to the Course Admin office and check if you have been accepted into the class. You may still be on the waitlist.

Name badges

A gentle reminder to make sure you always wear your name badge whilst you are attending any of our classes. Please make sure you have filled out the reverse side too.
