Statement on MGA’s current response to the COVID-19 outbreak from Managing Director Drew Gowland:

We will adapt and continue to succeed.

The health and safety of our students, staff and the communities in which we live, work and play are paramount to MGA as an organisation. We have always honoured all legislation, guidelines, codes of conduct and examples of best practice offered to us by our accrediting and governing bodies. We will therefore do everything we can to honour what is currently being asked of us by our local councils and national government. As such, today marks the final day of face-to-face classes and the temporary closure of The MGA Academy studios until this current crisis is under control and we are permitted to resume group tuition.

Many thanks to all who support us in our work. We are forever grateful.

Drew Gowland
Co-Founder & Managing Director
