IGC Information Folder

The Invercargill Gymnastic Club maintains an information folder which contains all relevant information to do with the club.

It is hoped that through this Information Folder, the IGC Executive can keep in touch with all Members of the IGC and provide accessible and understandable documentation which covers all areas of the IGC. This may include foundation information, day-to-day running information, class information, enrolment information, codes of conduct, role descriptions, and all IGC policies, procedures, processes and plans. By making this information readily available to everyone, those who wish to learn more are able to gain a deeper understanding of how the IGC works, while those who need clarification on a specific topic are able to quickly and easily find the up-to-date answers.

NOTE: This folder is a work in progress, and as such is still incomplete.
This table of contents is only a draft, and currently only has the
completed and printed documents listed here.
The rest is still to come.

Recommended ages 7 – 12 years.
