ENROLLING AT THE SCHOOL

Simply complete the enrolment form and return it to the reception desk during our bookings period. Generally all new enrolments need to be completed in person; however if this is not suitable other arrangements can be made.
 
Due to the popularity of our school we provide a waitlist service for customers who wish to pre-enrol prior to the booking periods. For further information on this service please contact our reception.
Often we receive enrolments where children have had previous lessons and in some cases they may require an assessment prior to placement. If an assessment is required to determine their ability the aquatic department will contact you by phone to arrange a suitable time.

8.        Cancellations

This contract of membership can be voided if written notification is provided no later than seven working days prior to the commencement of the YSS term.

Cancellation received after seven working days but prior to the commencement of the YSS swimming term will receive a refund less a $20 administration fee.

All terms and conditions of membership are binding once the YSS term commences.

 

9.        Refunds (medical certificate only)

Refunds are available for medical reasons. These require a medical certificate (this certificate must state the dates of unattended lessons).

We do issue credits or transfers to another term.

An administration fee of $20 will be deducted for all refunds. Credits or transfers to another term will not be charged a $20.00 administration fee.

 

10.     Missed Lessons

Compensation for missed lessons or make up lessons is not applicable as a child's spot in a class is reserved solely for her/him during the term regardless of attendance. Students who are unable to attend lessons due to illness can organise up to two (2) make up classes for all other levels per term. Nursery classes are entitled to 2 make ups for both parent and child. Make up lessons can only be provided if spaces become available within the same term and they will expire and become a forfeit at the end of each term.  We endeavour to cater to the needs of make ups, but as there can be no guarantee of spots becoming available for everyone, we strongly advise all students to attend all their allocated classes as losses will be borne solely by the absentee. (A medical Certificate is required before a credit can be given.)

 

In addition, the following conditions apply:

The YSS office must be notified of non-attendance-call on 9434 4516 before:

·          Morning classes: notification must be received by8:30am
