In an effort to ensure the safety of your child attending Learning Labs we have enacted the following:

  • Mandatory double vaccination of all Learning Labs teachers, volunteers and staff working on the program
  • Outside drop off and pick up areas
  • Rooms that will address ventilation requirements and adequate size
  • Mask wearing in line with current NSW Health advice

We encourage all eligible persons to get vaccinated to ensure the safety of our community, especially our younger persons and those whose immune systems are compromised. We will do everything we can to mitigate the risk of transmission of COVID-19 but we cannot guarantee zero risk of infection for attendees or family members coming on the UOW campus for Learning Labs. We encourage all families to consider the information provided, in conjunction with personal circumstances, in order to make an informed decision about participation in the January 2022 Learning Labs program. Any updates or further information regarding COVID-19 protocols will be provided as we get closer to the event.

Things to note

  • Some workshops will incur an increase in cost due to extra supplies involved. This will be made clear on specific workshops within the workshop descriptions -- see "Workshop description" section above.
  • Creative Kids vouchers are accepted for certain workshops. The full workshop descriptions will outline which workshops are eligible. Look out for the 'CK' symbol -- see "Workshop description" section above.
  • All students must bring their own morning tea, lunch, drink bottle, hat and sunscreen.
  • For January 2022, the Year 3 o 4 and Year 5 to 6 two-day workshops are not on the same days. This decision was made to limit crowds during drop-off/pick-up and align with room capacity requirements. For future programs, we hope to return to having these workshops on the same days.
