Saturday Club Term 2 – VIRTUAL

GTCASA is pleased after a pause to offer two Saturday Club sessions for the intermediate (8-12) and senior (12-16) age groups in Term 2.

There will be limited positions.

Each session will be delivered via Zoom and be in two 40 min blocks with a break in the middle. Participants will require a reliable broadband connection and an IT platform with a camera, speakers and microphone. We ask that participants configure their Zoom account prior and employ a virtual background.

Prior to the session each ticket holder will receive an email with zoom details and any other IT support requirements.

Intermediate (8-12 yrs)
