The Queensland Government's Stage 3 restrictions are now in place. This allows us to welcome more of our students, members and
supporters to Alliance in person. It also allows us to continue with our plans for relaunching our cultural workshop programme and
returning classes to the classroom. We have been working hard to ensure Alliance is a safe place for all and maintaining a warm ambiance.
The library has been open for almost a month and it has been a joy to have visitors at Alliance borrowing and returning books. Plastic
screens, procedures and signage are in place in the lobby. Hand sanitisers and wipes are available in all classrooms and public spaces. Our
teachers and office staff have been trained in safety procedures. Our office staff have been on the premises for two weeks and we are all
looking forward to welcoming you all back over the coming weeks.
The Queensland Government's Stage 3 restrictions now allow us to return all classes to Alliance so we will see many of you back for the next session starting 27 July. We continue to encourage social distancing wherever possible and encourage everyone to continue practicing good hand hygiene. Some beginner classes will remain on Zoom as we have been lucky enough to get students from outside Brisbane joining us during the confinement (lockdown). We will be phoning to discuss options with all students who reside outside of Brisbane as well.
We are doing all we can to welcome as many classes as possible to our premises for the last class of this session in the week of 13 July 2020. This will give everyone the opportunity to experience firsthand our return to a new normal.
With the further relaxing of the restrictions we are looking to gradually return to longer terms that will re-align with Queensland's school holidays. The dates are available here.
From 27 July, our extended opening hours will resume (Monday – Thursday, 9am to 6.45pm, Friday 9am to 5pm, Saturday 8am to 1pm).
In the meantime, the office is open from 9am-5pm, five days a week. Please feel free to drop in for a look around, a chat, read a magazine. We would be happy to show you around. Your feedback is precious. Please let us know of your concerns and we will try to address them to the best of our ability.
Your support through membership and signing up to online classes during this crisis continues to be appreciated and helps to keep us all
