Hello GEALC Community,

How wonderful it is to welcome you all to 2022 and to the GEALC News - this is where you will find SO MUCH important information about what is happening at GEALC and in the community. Please be sure to read the News each week when it arrives in your inbox.

While most of our classes remain online for the first 4 weeks, we are so excited to be connecting with you all again - whether you are working on your English, computer skills, job skills, art or yoga, we have missed you and look forward to an excellent year of learning ahead! If you haven't finalised your enrolment please contact Reception on 95788996 or at info@gealc.org.au or through our website enrolment page: www.gealc.org.au/brochure/enrol/

COVID is still dominating the news and our lives and in this newsletter we keep you up-to-date with the rules and guidelines and provide you with reliable information about how to stay safe and healthy. Today there is information about WHAT DO DO IF YOU TEST POSITIVE TO COVID and also about getting your BOOSTER. Before we return to face-to-face learning, we will let you know all about GEALC's COVIDsafe policies.

Coming up in March is the GEALC Multicultural Festival. this is always a fantastic, fun day of celebrating diversity with food, music, dance and good company! We would love some of students to perform at the festival so check out the poster and details below and email me if you can help out!


Below you will find details about Neighbourhood House Victoria's new "No Interest Loan Scheme". Good Shepherd is providing loans to health care card and pension card holders for essential goods and services.

Here is a link to an article I really enjoyed reading - it is about migrant women building their own businesses! Happy reading:

Finally, to our community members celebrating the Lunar New Year - Happy New Year! Wishing you success, good health, peace and joy in this year of the Tiger! 
  


As you know, we are here at GEALC to help and support you so if you need anything, please get in touch.

Stay Safe!! 🙂 Lindy
