School Policies and Procedures
A school newsletter is distributed to students at the commencement of each term. We ask that both students and parents read these carefully and note important dates and information that are included in these. You can download our latest dance newsletter here.
Students and their families are welcome to advertise or list the sale of second-hand dancewear and shoes, community notices or other information (achievements, news, etc) in the newsletter. If you wish to advertise in the next SDA newsletter, please contact Miss Shilleena.
There is a lost property cupboard in the kitchen waiting area of the upstairs studio. All lost property from all studios get transferred to this cupboard. Please check this regularly and if you are missing any property. Any items remaining in the cupboard at the end of each term will be donated to charity.
Injury Prevention & Management Strategies
Teachers at the school employ injury prevention and management strategies, in accordance with the Australian Guidelines for Dance Teachers (CREATE Australia and Australian Dance Council, 1997). The importance of correct warm-up and cool-down is emphasised and applied in all classes.
A stocked first aid kit is accessible to all classes at all times. Teachers also carry updated lists of emergency telephone numbers including local ambulance, police and fire brigade.
In the event of a medical emergency, the teacher will endeavour to contact parents immediately. If parents are uncontactable, the teachers reserve the right to call for ambulance service if deemed necessary.
First Aid, Medical
As part of our enrolment procedure, we ask that you acknowledge the following terms - "I/we agree if in the case of my child requiring medical treatment or in the case of a medical emergency, I/we consent to the school providing first aid or treatment and I/we further authorise the school, where it is impracticable to communicate with me/us, to arrange for him/her to receive such medical or surgical treatment as may be deemed necessary. I/we also undertake to pay any costs which may be incurred for the medical treatment, ambulance transport and drugs."
Complaints & Difficulties
Any complaints and/or difficulties can be easily resolved as Miss Shilleena is always available. Please feel free to contact Miss Shilleena by phone or e-mail. We encourage you to contact us immediately should a concern arise.
Shilleena’s Dance Academy is committed to the safety and well-being of all children attending this dance school. Please read about our policy in the downloadable file below.
Payment Method / Policies
Fees for lessons will be charged by the term and payable before your first lesson of each term. The annual term fee has been divided by 4 to reach the per term amount. Discounts are available to families or students enrolled in multiple classes.
Processing your payments
Payments can be made by direct deposit, cash or cheque and are due before the end of week two each term.
You can log into your profile from the student log in and check your invoices if you are unsure of your account balance.
If you have queries about your account please direct them to the office number 0439 763 082 during usual business hours.
Late payment of fees will be subject to an 11% administration charge. Prompt settlement of any overdue account will prevent the school in spending unnecessary administration time in trying to chase overdue accounts.
We need to clear outstanding accounts to ensure the school is adequately funded and to pay our teachers and overheads. All students benefit from a sufficiently funded school.
Unfortunately refunds or credits cannot be made for classes that are missed, however, students may take a 'make-up' lesson with a comparable class. Make-up lessons are available for the full dance year but expire at the end of term 4 each year. These may be arranged through Miss Shilleena.
If a student withdraws their enrolment before the end of a term, the full term's fees will remain payable. At any time a student's enrolment must officially withdrawn by informing the principal, otherwise fees will continue to accrue as the student's place is held in the class. Students are advised to keep their own record of payments made for class fees.
