Dear students and Parents,
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 are required to provide at least the first couple of classes of this years first term on Zoom. We have been further informed that where possible our teachers , and anyone who can, should continue working from home. We are also aware that as part of the 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 unavailable for indoor events for the coming couple of weeks. We have had to move some classes around on then timetable and if your classes are effected you will receive a call from the office before we start next weekend. The information about Zoom and the NPAS Zoom experience is available at our website. We will send you an invitation to the class later in the week and we can’t wait to see you all.
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. Class numbers are smaller to enable more time for everyone to communicate and engage with each other. We will also be working towards our Drama and Musical Theatre Exams in March and April with The Irish Board of Speech and Drama. 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, when possible. The safety of our Students and their Families are our absolute priority and we will be following all recommendations from The HSE to the letter. Thank you for booking your classes with us – we are so happy to have you as part of the NPAS Family.
