In the event of tutor illness or unforeseen circumstances, we will endeavour to prevent class cancellation and to provide a substitute tutor. If we are unable to do this, the class may be postponed at very short notice and a replacement class re-scheduled. Should this situation arise we will make every effort to contact class participants as soon as possible.
We will make every effort to ensure that all courses proceed as advertised on the website or through related publicity material. However, all courses are subject to minimum enrolment numbers and we reserve the right to cancel any course where minimum numbers are not reached. We also reserve
the right to make minor modifications to any course content as we see necessary, without prior warning and without compromising the overall quality of the course content and structure. Although all due care will be taken, the centre will not accept responsibility for lost or damaged possessions students bring along to class with them.
Mairangi Arts Centre is dedicated to providing a harassment-free and inclusive learning environment for everyone regardless of gender identity and expression, sexual orientation, disabilities, neurodiversity, physical appearance, body size, ethnicity, nationality, race, age, religion, or other protected category. We do not tolerate harassment of anyone using our facilities and services including but not limited to our students, tutors, staff, exhibitors, members and visitors. All allegations of harassment will be taken seriously.
Facilities and Equipment
We expect the co-operation of all students by leaving their workspaces clean and tidy commencing packing/tidying up no later than 10 minutes before the class finish time stated and to leave by class finish time. Please replace easels, chairs and tables for the next class and wipe your workspace with a hand towel or similar to remove any paint/residue.
For Parents & Caretakers of Children Attending Classes
TO ENSURE YOUR CHILD’S SAFETY
You must advise us of any medical conditions and/or special learning needs prior to the first class (09 478 2237 or email@example.com). This will allow the tutor to provide the best learning environment for your child. All such information will remain confidential with staff and tutor. Enrolments for children with special learning needs will be assessed on a case by case basis and will require an adult to attend class as support for the child.
Sign In/Out Procedure
Students under the age of fourteen (14) must arrive at the stated times for their class, accompanied by a caregiver who is required to sign them in with a signature. Caregivers must collect students from the studios and sign them out after each class. Students will not be permitted to leave the studio without a caregiver present. You must inform the tutor anytime someone other than the registered caregivers will be collecting the child. The centre will not be held responsible for the safety of children who arrive early at class and are left unattended by caregivers.
If no-one has arrived to collect a child at the end of class, the tutor will attempt to contact parents/caregivers and the alternative contact person using the emergency details supplied at time of enrolment.
30 minutes after the end of class, if no-one has arrived to collect the child and the tutor has been unable to contact anyone after multiple attempts, they are obligated to report the situation to police.
Mairangi Arts Centre reserves the right to exclude from the programme children who are repeatedly collected late.
Management reserves the right to exclude from the programme any child who is constantly disruptive, does not adhere to the programme rules or poses a significant risk to the safety of themselves or others. The tutor reserves the right to contact and request caregivers to collect students displaying disruptive behaviour during class. Mairangi Arts Centre will strive to be fair and consistent.
Accidents and Emergencies
Parents will be contacted immediately, and staff will perform appropriate first aid and if necessary call an ambulance. Any urgent medical attention will be at the parents’ cost. Children will not be transported by private vehicles unless there is a serious emergency e.g. the need to evacuate due to tsunami, earthquake.
If you have any comments or concerns about the programme, please speak to the tutor in the first instance.
