Last updated March 2020


Dear Members,

Following the Federal Governments updating of the social distancing rules on Friday afternoon the WPS Committee decided that WPS could not continue to offer classes without the risk of breaching these rules and possibly putting teachers and students at risk to Covid-19.

The studio will be suspending all classes and WPS studio access from Monday 23/03/20 until further notice.

This was a difficult and sad decision. The Committee believes that the public health risks to teachers and students must take preference over the inconvenience caused by the suspension.

The committee will constantly monitor the public health crisis over the coming weeks. If there is any change for the better we will consider what access can be organised. In these worrying times we wish all our members and their families good health and look forward to seeing you all soon.

Rebecca Baird

WPS President
