Can parents watch classes?

To ensure optimum focus for all students class, we do not allow parents inside the classrooms (excluding extenuating circumstances that have been pre-discussed). We do however have viewing windows into all classes which parents are more than welcome to utilise. 

Do you offer payment plans?

Yes, we have a number of payment options available depending on your circumstances. All payment arrangements must be discussed and finalised in writing to our email address. For more information on this please email us at info@westendperformingarts.com.au or speak to one of our staff at reception when you are next in. 

What are the expectations of the students?

We understand that no two students are alike, In order for us to support and nurture this, we ask that all students conduct themselves in a respectful manner towards themselves, their peers and their teachers. We do not expect perfection, but we do expect 100% effort.

What time should my child arrive at class?

We find arrive 10-15 mins before classes where possible is optimal for both your child and other peers. This time allows them to go to the bathroom, ensure they have a drink bottle for class, catch up with friends before class and go over anything with their peers before entering the classroom. When this can be followed, we find that the classes run smoother and teachers can get through more with the students.
