Dear Students and Families of Practical Wing Chun,
As you know we are going through a very trying and questionable time in our lives. Everyone is concerned and fearful of the Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19).
With the relentless media attention around Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) and some of the elevated behaviours that we have seen, it is possible that some members and families may be quite scared about the spread of the virus and the potential impact on them.
As we all continue to monitor the situation very closely, and follow the latest guidance from the Queensland Health (https://www.qld.gov.au/health/conditions/health-alerts/coronavirus-covid-19) and WHO, we have taken the following actions:
We have added new sanitary protocols to our locations, to increase preventative measures in our environment.
We spray disinfectant and wipe down on all training gears and surroundings after training.
You will see hand sanitiser at our school along with disinfecting wipes. We encourage you to use them.
Knowledge is important through difficult times like this. Be aware but try not to panic. This month’s children class’ topic : GERMS
We explain to our children at the end of class WHY we need to wash hands and HOW to wash our hands correctly.
We asked the differences between coughing into the arms (the good & bad) vs coughing into hands (with and without tissue) and explained why we do so after class. (Along with other life skills for our children)
Meanwhile, we also highly encourage all students and instructors:
Say home if you are unwell
Washing hands with soap and water in 20 seconds or use hand sanitiser especially before and after class.
Covering your nose and mouth with a tissue or flexed elbow when coughing or sneezing.
I thank you for your understanding and support in managing these challenging times and supporting student awareness of the additional need for strong health and hygiene practices.
For those who are unwell and have missed classes, we are extending our make up classes to the end of the year. Please contact me directly so we can work together on the “catch-up” classes. We will accommodate and create new classes/PT for students affected.
Lastly, this is my 7th year of teaching. I have never increased any of my students membership because I believe we have a very strong bond in our Kung Fu family. And this is one of the main reason why the school is continue growing.
I ask for your support during these difficult times. Let’s stick together and beat the germs!
