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

To book and pay on line, please ensure that you have registered your details. If you do not wish to pay on line, you can pay in person or over the phone.

Enrolments must be completed on line and payment made to guarantee a place in the class . Please note that a $10 administration fee will be charged if you would like a staff member to do the enrolment for you.

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.

NOTE for Ceramic classes: All artworks are fired in the kiln, dip-glazed by the tutor, then re-fired.  Ceramic artworks from the January 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.
