HSPA Policies

Payment & Enrollment Policy

    • Charges are per term, not per week. There are no refunds for students missing lessons due to other activities or illness.

    • By enrolling with HSPA you enrol for the calendar year, until such time as you withdraw from the class. You will continue to be invoiced each term until you withdraw from class via email. You are liable to pay the full term fee if you do not withdraw from a class before the end of the second week of the term.

    • In your first week of lessons you can notify us if the class is not for you, we will then adjust your account to just charge for that lesson. Beyond the first two weeks of term, students will be expected to pay for the term.

    • An $8 administration fee is added to your account if payments are not made by the due date.

    • Students may not continue in class if they have not paid the previous term's fees or made finance arrangements.

    • All clients with bad debts passed on to Baycorp will be liable for the collection costs incurred, after all reasonable notifications have been sent.

Waiver

    • Students may be photographed or filmed in class or performance. These images may be used for promotional purposes in publication, on our website and facebook page etc. They may also be shared within the school community.

    • HSPA and its tutors are not liable for injury to students during their performing arts lessons. These are by nature, physical classes, students may come into contact with each other and the tutor during the course of the class. Staff will take all reasonable care to ensure safe practice as set out in our H&S plan, and offer basic First Aid care as needed.
