2.5. All places are given on a confirmation-by-payment policy. We do not accept confirmation of places by any other means. If no payment is received by the due date, it will be assumed the place has been given up. We reserve the right to release the place without prior notice.

2.7. We will only acknowledge the payment with proof of receipt and it must be given by the due date. Any receipts sent after the due date will not be accepted irrespective of the transaction time. We will not acknowledge the payment if no receipt is given.
3. Sick Leaves
3.1. If your child takes a sick leave, a doctor’s note must be presented in order to reschedule the class. Any holistic treatments must require proof of purchase. We reserve the right to deny make-up classes if a doctor’s note or proof of purchase for holistic treatments is not presented.
4. Class Arrangements
4.1. We must be notified of any class changes or cancellations at least 24 hours before the scheduled class. The class will be considered as taken for no shows or if late notification is given. No make-up classes will be arranged.
4.2. We will not make up for any late arrivals to classes.
4.3. With the exception of private class, your child will only work on materials that are provided by us. Any special requirements (e.g. homework, research assignments) will be considered as a private class and shall be charged at the private rate of HKD 800/hour.
4.4. For private class arrangements, the customer is responsible for notifying us at least 48 hours before the scheduled time if there are any specific requirements. We reserve the right to deny any late requests.

5.6. We cannot guarantee that topics in the make-up class will be suitable for your child and if the lesson missed was a writing class, the make-up class could be grammar and vice versa. We strongly recommend that students keep the same time slots and that they do not take unnecessary leaves to avoid joining a class that your child has already done or may have already started a new topic.
