TERMS AND POLICIES AT INVERLOCHY ART SCHOOL
Inverlochy Art School is pleased to return to Level 1 in the Wellington region. Our QR code is located on the front door and the alternative hand written contact register is in the foyer upon entry. For further information on safety guidelines under the Covid19 alert levels, please visit https://covid19.govt.nz/alert-system/alert-system-overview/
Bookings will receive an automatic confirmation of your request and an enrolment email detailing your course fee and payment options. If this is not received please check your junk mail settings/folder first, then contact the manager. Payment of the course fee ensures your place on a course. An email receipt along with course information, confirms your enrolment.
Credit card payments are processed instantly and securely by Payment Express. Direct bank payments without a credit card are also available on the payment page through the Account2Account service. You need to know your bank login details to use this.
All course fees are displayed in New Zealand Dollars and include GST.
CANCELLATIONS AND REFUNDS
Most classes need a minimum number of 5 people to run. Inverlochy reserves the right to cancel any course or event for which insufficient numbers of students have enrolled. On occasion, a class may run with fewer students at the discretion of the tutor/management. The full amount paid will be refunded in case of cancellation.
There will be no refund for students who withdraw from a course once it has commenced. This is because a course is run based on student enrolments and withdrawing from a course jeopardizes the participation of all involved. Students who withdraw from a course up to a week before commencement will receive a full refund, less a $40 administration fee . Students who cancel less than seven days prior to the start of the course will be given a refund of 50% of the course fee.
