INFORMATION AND DRAMA SCHOOL POLICIES

FEES

All fees are paid in full upon enrolment and are non-transferable. Where a child commences after the term start date the class fees will be pro-rated to reflect the number of classes. If payment is not received within 7 days Canvas Bag reserves the right to remove a child from the class list.

Overdue fees will be referred to Baycorp Credit Collection Agency and all fees incurred in that process are the responsibility of the parents/caregivers.

PUBLICITY

Canvas Bag Drama likes to photograph and/or video classes and use the pictures for publicity purposes and regular Facebook updates. Should you not wish us to photograph your child please indicate this on the enrolment form.

VISITORS

Canvas Bag puts a value on students’ needs to have a private safe space for creative self-expression. However, parents are welcome to watch a class by prior arrangement with the tutor concerned. Siblings are not permitted due to constraints of space and the potential for distraction.

HOW TO ENROL

You can enrol by email, phone, or in person. Enrolment forms are processed as space permits on a first-come, first-served basis. You can reserve a space for a child by phone however payment and enrolment form must be received within 7 days of reservation to confirm a place in the class. We will not hold spaces for those who have not paid prior to the first class.

REFUND AND CANCELLATION POLICY

A child’s place may be cancelled without penalty 10 days prior to the first class, after that a non-transferable $30 administration fee will be charged. Participants cancelling after the first class of term will be charged for that class plus a non-transferable $30 administration fee. Notice of cancellation must be given to Canvas Bag via email, and will be dated as from office receipt of the email. Absence from class does not constitute notice of cancellation. As of the second class of term, no refunds or student transfers will be allowed.

MISSED CLASSES

Canvas Bag likes to maintain well balanced and cohesive classes. Therefore we are unable to give makeups, discounts, refunds or credits for classes not attended due to illnesses or holidays.

DISRUPTIVE BEHAVIOUR

Canvas Bag reserves the right to remove a student from a class where that student exhibits unacceptable behaviour. Canvas Bag expects all students to have reasonable self management skills and always act with the overall safety and well-being of the class as being of paramount importance.

The Non-obligation TRY-OUT CLASS

Canvas Bag wants your child to enjoy a drama class as an after-school leisure time activity. If you are not sure about drama classes you may elect to do a one-off trial class. Please complete a paper enrolment form before the trial class. If you decide to continue with the term then normal conditions apply.

CONFIRMATION OF ENROLMENT

Once enrolment form and payment is received you will receive confirmation by email, text or phone from our office.

RECONFIRMATION FOR SUBSEQUENT TERMS

A reconfirmation email goes out at the end of each term. It is essential to complete this and make your payment BEFORE the commencement of the new term, in order to keep your place.

LAST BUT NOT LEAST

We want your child to enjoy their classes and participate with energy and enthusiasm. Tutors are happy at all time to discuss any aspect of your child’s participation either at the end of a class or by phone. We look forward to becoming positively involved with your child at Canvas Bag Drama.
