Update: Return to Face-to-Face Lessons

Dear Students, Friends and Families,

We miss having you here and are very excited to be able to invite you to return toindividual face-to-face teaching next week, commencing Monday 25th May 2020.

If you, your family and your teacher are comfortable about returning, we will welcome you back on-site to engage with your teacher face to face in one of ourlarger rooms.  Your teacher will be in contact to discuss arrangements with you for next week.   … If you would prefer to continue with online lessons for now, that is perfectly OK!

Below are the ORC’s guidelines we would like you to follow:

  • Adhere to the Australian Government physical distancing guidelines
  • Follow hand washing hygiene
  • Stay at home if you are sick or feeling unwell
  • No waiting or gathering in the foyer or corridors before or after lessons
  • Follow your teacher’s advice about sharing instruments, stationery and music
  • Strongly consider following the advice of the Australian Government and download the COVID Safe App to your phone to protect you, and the people who you come into contact with

Here at the ORC, we will undertake to:

  • Provide hand sanitiser
  • Provide clean and disinfected studios, instruments and bathrooms
  • Provide clear signage and floor markings
  • Provide teaching rooms of adequate size

Please understand, we are NOT returning to face-to-face ensemble or grouprehearsals yet.  (i.e. individual lessons only).

As much as we have enjoyed our lessons on-line with you, there is nothing like being together sharing the joy of music. We are looking forward to the chance to see you here in person next week!

Kind Regards,

Donna Riles
