The Longford Academy have made the following announcement.
“Uncertainty about COVID border restrictions means that we have reluctantly decided to cancel the Summer School planned for 7–13 February 2021.
“A good proportion of the course enrolments have come in from the greater Sydney area, which currently means they would have to quarantine for 14 days on arrival in Tasmania. While the restrictions might change shortly before the course, the uncertainty makes it too difficult for our planning.
“As promised, we will refund any deposits and fees paid — bear with us while we do that.
“Although we had hoped that 2021 would be different from 2020, it’s looking like it’s going to be more of the same, at least for the greater part of the year. We are quite likely to find ourselves in a similar situation with our Autumn (May) course.
“Looking further ahead, we aim to run the summer school on similar dates in 2022 — pencil in 6–12 February 2022 and we’ll keep you posted. Those enrolled or who have expressed interest for this year’s course will be put on our mailing list for Summer School 2022 so you get the earliest notification of registrations opening. This should happen in early December 2021.
“Thanks for your interest in the summer school and support of the Longford Academy — we hope to see you at Woolmers & Brickendon some day soon.
If you have any questions, please contact the Longford Academy by emailing the organiser, Greg Owen.
Please note that whilst the APT Australasia Chapter supports the aims of the Longford Academy, all Longford Academy events are now run by an independent entity.
