“Eggnastics” and AGM: Wednesday 28th March
5 PM start – 6 PM finish
The AGM and “Eggnastics” night will be held on Wednesday March 28. All classes for the night (4pm, 5pm and 6pm classes) will be combined at 5pm. This will be a night of fun with loads of Easter Themed activities. Parents will attend the A.G.M. upstairs while kids are looked after. Tea & coffee provided at the meeting.
We are a committee run community group. Please consider joining the committee. We meet on the 2nd Monday of each month. Nomination forms and committee position descriptions are available below.
Anyone wishing to try out for our competitive classes, i.e. the Team Gym group and/or boys and girl ‘levels’ group can come along this Thursday (15th March) from 4-6pm.
Please be aware that inclusion in the competitive classes will require more commitment and cost.
If you have any questions regarding this, please call Bernie – 0413 415 912.
$100 off your Gym Fees: Active Kids Program
Don’t forget to register for the Active Kids program, all school children in NSW are eligible for a $100 voucher that can be put towards any sporting activity. Once you’re registered, you just need to give us your voucher number with your payment of the balance of next term’s fees.
Staying to watch you child’s class?
We welcome parents and carers to stay to watch your child’s class, however you are also free to drop your child off and then collect them from inside the hall at the end of class.
It has come to the Committee’s attention that the practice of allowing parents and siblings to remain during the classes seated around the hall may be an Occupational Health and Safety Issue.
The Club is happy for you to stay and watch your child, but in the interest of safety and well-being of spectators and Gymnasts we respectfully ask that as from next week, all parents and spectators use the upstairs viewing deck. This can be accessed either via the internal staircase just past the men’s toilet or via the main entrance on the upper level.
Your assistance in this matter is greatly appreciated.
