On extremely hot/wet days, we may make a decision in advance and post on our Facebook page before the lesson time to cancel. Please ensure we always have a current mobile number on which to contact you. Cancellation of one group lesson does not necessarily mean that other lessons will be cancelled that day. If you have not received an SMS cancellation and choose not to attend, then you risk missing the class.

Changes to Lesson Schedules
Occasionally we may have to make changes to our published schedule, including cancelling a published group lesson, creating an additional group lesson, or changing the day/time of a group lesson. In such cases we are generally unable to update our printed brochures/flyers but we endeavour to keep the schedules up-to-date on our website. If there are insufficient enrolments by the end of Week 1 of a school term for a scheduled group lesson to be viable, we may cancel that group for the term. Anyone who has already enrolled a child in a scheduled lesson that is subsequently cancelled or changed will be offered alternative time slots or given a full refund.
