FAQS

What are the fees?

We follow the WA school term system, of four terms per year.

Term fees per 10 week term (all inclusive) with sibling discounts are:

1 child $200  |  2 children $380   |  3 children $560
Pro-rata rates are available for part-term enrolment and fees may vary depending on the length of the school term.

Can we have a trial lesson?

It is very hard to get a feel for the whole program in just one lesson! However, we do have options to help your child settle into our classes, so contact us to find out about these.

What do children bring to class?

Generally, students are not required to bring much to class, other than lots of energy.
It is recommended that they bring a labelled drink bottle (water only please).

What do they wear?

• We recommend that students wear comfortable clothing to enable them to move freely during activities.
• Academy t-shirts are available – see below.
• We occasionally include “dress-up” lessons. We keep these simple and make sure that they are easy to provide from home!

Are there any costume requirements?
• As above, we occasionally include “dress-up” lessons. We keep these simple and make sure that they are easy to provide from home!
• Simple costumes are used in our annual productions, which can usually also be found easily at home. Sometimes the costumes are provided by the Academy.

How many children are in a class?
We have an average of between 15 to 20 per class as we find that number works best for the drama dynamics! All of our teachers are fully qualified educators, with specialist training in the Helen O’Grady Drama system.

Can we enrol during an existing term?
Yes! You can enrol any time during the year. New children are always welcome and pro-rata rates are available for part-term enrolment.

What is the refund/credit policy?
In order to keep the fee affordable for all families, and the program viable, we are unable to offer refunds or credits.  Please contact us for further information.
