School Holiday Classes

School Holiday Classes

Your early paid enrolment is appreciated to help meet minimum numbers for a class to go ahead and to ensure we can give adequate notice to parents and tutors if a class needs to be cancelled.

Materials are supplied for all children's classes. Minimum 6 students unless otherwise stated.

LUNCHTIMES: Children staying all day are supervised at lunchtimes (1-1.30pm) by Lake House staff members or volunteers. A morning break is also supervised from 11-11.30am. Please make sure children bring a packed lunch and water bottle.  No highly-sugared drinks or lollies please. In summer, sunscreen and a hat is a must. If a hat isn't supplied, children will remain indoors with supervision and an activity.

NOTE for Ceramic classes: All artworks are fired in the kiln, dip-glazed by the tutor, then re-fired.  Ceramic artworks from the July school holiday program will be ready for pickup approximately a month after the holidays have finished unless otherwise notified. All pickups must be accompanied with a visual record.  Works cannot be held any longer than this due to storage constraints.
