Unity Studios – Mentoring All Ages & Abilities

Cassandra Jensen, Director of Unity Studios

Unity Studios run programs in academics, creative and performing arts for all ages and abilities (since 2016). 

Unity Studios is a learning space where students work with a team of fully qualified teachers, mentors & workshop facilitators in tailored personalised learning.

We have two studios, Penrith and Blaxland.

Our focus is on mentoring, assisting students to appreciate their authentic self. We want our participants to leave us richer for the experience.

We want you to be empowered to be “unapologetically you”.

Unity Studios is COVID safe

When you come into the studio you will notice a few changes that have been implemented to keep us COVID safe.

  • The waiting room has been closed. Please ensure your child is delivered to the studio safely but you do not need to accompany them inside. Their mentor will welcome them in at the start of their session time.
  • We value your feedback and encourage communication, so if you need to pass any information on to your child’s mentor or have questions, please email them to me and I will ensure they are delivered and responded to.
  • Do not attend sessions if you are displaying the following symptoms –  fever, dry cough, sore throat, runny nose, shortness of breath. If you are in a group session, work will be arranged for you in your absence. If you are in a 1:1 session, an online session can be arranged (if you feel up to it)
  • Hand sanitiser is available to use upon entry to the space
  • Tables and other surfaces are wiped down with disinfectant between each session
  • Please bring whatever equipment you need for your session – eg a pencil case with pens, pencils, ruler, eraser, calculator, art supplies. A drink bottle is also a good idea. We are keeping sharing to a minimum.
  • The Restroom has stocked with hand soap and paper towel
  • Record keeping – if anyone enters the studio space and are not on our timetable, we will record their name, email address and phone number for contact tracing. This includes parents and is why we encourage you to not accompany your child into the studio. This information is used solely for contact tracing and will be stored securely.

Thank you for helping keep our Unity Studios community safe.
