The book will be ISBN registered under your child's name. Your child owns the full copyright and intellectual property contained in the book.
7. Can my child under 9 years old join the workshop?
No. This workshop is only available to children aged 9-12 years old. We may open up workshops targeted at younger children later in the year. Please check back here for updates on our events and workshops.
8. Why are there so few places available?
To maximise your child's learning experience, we are keeping the classes small.
9. If I don't secure a slot, how do I ensure a place in the next round of workshops?
All received registrations are date and time stamped. You will be waitlisted according to your preferred date and time. Should you not get a slot, you will be offered a place in our next round of workshops and also be placed on our Mailing List to receive updates on all our events and workshops.
10. Can we pay in advance to secure a slot in the next workshop?
No. You should submit a registration to secure a spot on our Waiting List. When places are available, you will be notified.
11. If I made payment but my child cannot attend the workshop, can I get a refund?
You will receive a refund less $120 administrative fee if you withdraw your child at least one week before the start of the first workshop session. If you withdraw mid-way during the workshop, there will be no refund.
12. If my child misses a session, will there be a replacement session?
There will be no replacement sessions as these are all one-off sessions. Children who miss a class will be caught up on what he/she missed during subsequent sessions.
