Dear Students and Parents,
Firstly we hope you are all keeping well.
We are writing to let you know that there will be a change to your upcoming classes with us.
Due to the continuing Level 3 restrictions we have come to the decision to provide at least the first couple of classes of this years’ first term, online, via Zoom. We have looked at all of the options and this decision hasn’t been an easy one – we were looking forward to seeing you all after such a long break from class, but we have been further informed that where possible our teachers and anyone who can, should continue working from home.
We also believe that playing our part and limiting movement as much as possible while we’re at level 3, is in the best interests of our students, teachers and others members of our society.
We are also aware that as part of the level 3 restrictions “no indoor organized events” are allowed. In continuing to stick as strictly as possible to the health guidelines we will start the term on Zoom.
Our class venues are also closed for indoor events for the coming weeks’.
What we have decided to do is as follows: The Tuesday, 4-5pm and 5-6pm Mounttown classes will begin on Zoom on Tuesday 13th of October with your teacher Hannah May at 4pm – 5.30pm (1hr 30minutes)
If you have booked into any other location we will be sending other update-emails shortly.
The information about Zoom and the NPAS Zoom experience is available at our website of by following this link: https://www.npas.ie/zoom-
We will send you an invitation to the class on Tuesday (and each Tuesday) via email so please check that your emails are not sending our emails to a spam folder.
We are very disappointed not to be holding classes in person, but we are excited that you will get to see your classmates and teachers and to interact with them. We hope that later in the term when restrictions ease we will be back in Studio.
Blended learning is our goal for this term, with as much Studio time as possible. Thank you for booking your classes with us and for your continued support in these very, very uncertain times – we are so happy to have you as part of the NPAS Family.
Jill and Eamon
