COVID-19 update, 19th March

SCHOOL CLOSURES – Classes postponed after Friday, 20th March

Due to the Governments decision yesterday to close school, the MF Organisation have taken the decision to stop face-to-face teaching after FRIDAY, 20TH MARCH.  We will monitor the situation on a daily basis and keep you all informed as to the duration and when we will be back in the hall.

*** Does this mean my training stops? NO – we have plenty for you to do!

ONLINE PORTAL: There will be an on-line portal available from next week which will contain (link to be sent out soon):

  • curriculum DVD
  • videos of training aids / hints and tips
  • fitness ideas and challenges
  • challenges
  • homework and life-skills for the younger ones
  • lesson plans for you to follow

MF KENT ONLINE TRAINING FACEBOOK GROUP: We have set up a private MF Kent Online Training Facebook group (click to join). If you have not done so already please join and share it with as many members as you possibly can.  We aim to stream live classes for members from next week at the same times as the normal timetable.

SCHOOL WHATSAPP GROUPS: As well as the usual bulk text system we use, we have also set up school WhatsApp Groups to keep the lines of communication quick and open.  If you have not been added and feel you should be please e-mail Master Finch:

LESSON PLANS: We will be developing lesson plans for you to follow at home.

PERSONALISED LESSON PLANS: These can be tailored so that if you want an individualised one you can have one.

*** What happens when we return?

As well as maintaining the online support for you all we will also put in place:

  • Extended class times
  • Free, large seminars for all ages
  • No summer shut-down

We appreciate this is a challenging time and our thoughts and efforts must firstly go out to those in need, the vulnerable and those at the front line keeping us safe.  Thank you for all of your amazing support now and in the future and I look forward to seeing you online so be sure to clear out those living rooms!

See you all soon.

Master Finch
