Ipswich Show holiday – Classes are still running!

By Myriam Raymond | May 2, 2021

Ipswich Show holiday is a holiday for Ipswich, not for Brisbane. As most of us who teach classes live and work in Brisbane, that day will be a normal work day for us, and classes are on! See you there!

Anzac Day and Labour Day holidays

By Myriam Raymond | April 23, 2021

Monday 26th April is a public holiday for Anzac Day, and Monday 3rd May is a public holiday for Labour Day. We don’t train on public holidays so there will be no classes those days. We hope to see you the following Monday, or on another day of training. Other days are not affected.

Hooray to our new Shodans!
