Terms and conditions, please read before enrolling:  

Enrollments are first come first served unless by invitation. We try to cap our classes at a maximum of 15 participants, although this is at the discretion of the Managing Director. Our terms usually follow the public school terms and it is expected students will participate in show and tells or performances in the final week of class. Age cohorts are selected for a reason – please do not ask for your child to enter a class above their age range. From time to time one of the tutors may recommend that a student goes up an age level after they have worked with them.

Term Fees must be paid in advance via our online booking system unless an agreement has been entered into with Bec. Enrollments are non-refundable once term has commenced and discounts are usually not available for starting late in the term.  bec.pannell@sayarts.com.au

Discounts: Sibling discounts apply to the second and each subsequent sibling enrolled (except for Little Tacker classes). Use the code SiblingHalf.  Email Bec about any scholarships available or any discounts that might apply. We have 10 indigenous/new arrivals scholarships available each year, please ask Bec for information on how to apply. All scholarships are at the discretion of the Managing Director.

Cancellation of classes. If a class doesn’t achieve the minimum number of attendees it may be cancelled and other classes recommended for those enrolled. Should a week’s class need to be cancelled during term then the parents/guardians will be contacted via email or a text to the emergency contact number provided. Occasionally due to other work commitments or illness a tutor may be replaced by another SAYarts or guest tutor or assistant.

What to bring & wear to class: All our students are required to wear comfortable clothing that is suitable to move around in – this means students should wear clothing such as bike shorts, jeans, leggings etc to minimise their embarrassment when we ask them to do a handstand or lie on the ground. All students should BYO water. We expect mobile phones to be switched to silent. We strongly encourage personal hygiene such as deodorant for our upper primary + students as we are often working very closely together!

Attendance, Arrival and Collection of students. Please text Bec on 0400 202 399 if you / your child are going to be late to a class or will be absent from a class. We request that students do not arrive more than 15 minutes before class, and that they are collected promptly at class finishing time. Failure to collect students in a timely manner may incur a charge of $30 for every fifteen minutes after class finishing time. Parents are given an opportunity to observe the term’s work at the end of term/year. At all other times parents are not permitted to attend the classes as this impacts on the students’ concentration and teamwork.

Disclaimer: Please read our home page for our values and philosophy – our focus is more on development of the whole person rather than creating individual stars. We reserve the right to remove a student if we believe that the class is detrimental to them or they are detrimental to the class. Respectful behaviour is expected at all times.
