School holidays!

By Myriam Raymond | September 17, 2022

We have now finished Term 3 and are on school holidays! Kids classes resume on Friday 7th October. Adults classes continue as normal, with no break. See you at training!

No kids classes on Mondays

By Myriam Raymond | July 26, 2022

Due to low numbers, we have regrettably made the decision to no longer hold children’s classes on Mondays. Friday kids classes are still running. Adults classes will begin 15 minutes earlier on Mondays and Fridays.
