High Hopes Educational Services Skills for school ... Skills for life



Unfortunately due to increasing costs, all session and presentation fees will be increased from July 1, 2012.

Please note that workshops can be arranged by a school, a parent committee or a private organisation.

In addition to the workshops, High Hopes offers Year 5 and 6 Text Type Assessment rubrics for purchase.

All workshops include the provision of session summary notes and information - at no extra charge. It is assumed that schools/organisations are able to photocopy presentation and session notes for participants. If this is not possible, an additional photocopying levy will be charged.

Please note:

**Travel and/or accommodation costs will apply if the session or presentation is scheduled outside the Sydney metropolitan area.

** A fee of $50 per day living allowance will be charged for sessions outside Sydney metropolitan area requiring overnight stay(s).

** If travel requires the use of personal car, travel costs will be calculated at the rate of 60c per km (13c per km under the recommended rate suggested by the ATO)



We make every effort to ensure that all sessions are affordable! Our philosophy is to provide a service which can be easily accessed by all, at a rate that does not preclude not-for-profit organisations and community organisations on limited budgets! Please contact us to discuss your needs.



We understand that sometimes it is necessary to postpone, cancel or re-schedule events. However, we are sure you understand that once a date has been confirmed, bookings from other groups cannot be made for that date.

If cancellation occurs within 30 days of the confirmed event, no fee will be charged, as this time frame allows for another booking to be made.

If an event is postoponed within 30 days, but rescheduled for another time, no fee will be charged.

If cancellation occurs within one week of the confirmed event, half the scheduled fee will be charged. If the event is re-scheduled for another date, no fee will be charged.

If cancellation occurs witihin 48 hours of the confirmed event, the full fee will be charged. If the event is re-scheduled for another date, no fee will be charged.

If cancellation, postponement or re-scheduling occurs, any out-of-pocket expenses which have been incurred (travel, accommodation etc) will need to be reimbursed.
