Terms and Conditions

These terms and conditions apply to the enrolment of your son as a student of LONGFORD & FRASER Leadership Academy for Boys and by submitting an enrolment form and/or attending class, both you and your son agree to abide by them.

If you do not understand any part of these terms and conditions or have any concerns, please contact Melissa Anderson, Director on (03) 9592 4948 or email: This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. before enrolling.

 
 

Classes

A class timetable for each term will be provided upon enrolment and also published on the website at www.longfordandfraser.com.au. Advance notice, where possible, will be provided of any changes to location or class times.

Students must attend all scheduled classes except where there is a legitimate reason for non-attendance (for example, illness).

We would be grateful if you would advise us in advance of a student's non-attendance. Where a student is unable to attend 25% of classes for a eight week term program, a student will not be entitled to graduate. The term's curriculum will need to be repeated in the following year.

Where a scheduled class falls on a public holiday in Victoria, LONGFORD & FRASER will arrange an additional class in the week following Week 8.

Only enrolled students are permitted to attend classes; LONGFORD & FRASER is unable to accommodate parents or authorised guardians participating in or observing any classes.

 

Enrolment

Our curriculum is structured such that a student can commence and/or conclude the curriculum in any term.

Each term is independent and discrete.

Our 32-week curriculum does not run via the calendar year.

Enrolled students are given priority enrolment for subsequent terms assuming payment is made by the strict deadline (7 days after Week 8).

 

Graduation Ceremony

In order to graduate and receive their completion certificate, a student must attend the graduation ceremony in Week 8 of each term. If attendance is not possible a request in writing is required.

Where a student is graduating with their Junior Ph.D of Leadership and is unable to attend their scheduled graduation ceremony, that student is required to attend the graduation ceremony the following term.

A student is expected to conduct themselves at the graduation ceremony with self-control, self-respect and professionalism at all times. These strict guidelines are regularly reinforced in class and prior to the ceremony. Failure to adhere to these behavioural standards will result in immediate expulsion.

 
 

Standards of behaviour

LONGFORD & FRASER expects the same standards of behaviour for students as required by education institutions including:

  • being punctual
  • acting with kindness, respect and friendliness towards staff and students.

We reserve the right to decline or terminate an enrolment if we deem a child not sufficiently mature to gain benefit and/or contribute positively to the classroom, or, if their behaviour (or their parents' behaviour) adversely affects the classroom environment, the safety or well-being of our teaching/administrative staff or the learning outcomes for other students. In this circumstance, no refund will be provided.

Poor behaviour is contagious and deleteriously affects the learning environment. We choose not to tolerate such behaviour. As a leadership academy our standards are strict and demanding of excellence.

A strict policy of no mobile phones applies during class times.

 
 

Contact details and medical information

You agree that LONGFORD & FRASER may obtain medical assistance for your son if required and you indemnify LONGFORD & FRASER and its staff for any expense, loss, damage or liability of whatever nature resulting from arranging such medical assistance. You must inform LONGFORD & FRASER on the enrolment form if your son has any pre-existing medical conditions or allergies.

You must inform LONGFORD & FRASER of any change of contact details while enrolled, including emergency contact information and medical information.

 
 

Fees

Tuition fees must be paid upfront, in full before the commencement of each 8-week term.

The deadline to make payment to confirm your place in subsequent terms is strict.

The payment deadline for the following eight-week term will be at 8.00pm, seven days after the date of Week 8.

Failure to adhere to the deadline will result in your place being offered to the next family on the waiting list. You have the option to join the waiting list in chronological order.

LONGFORD & FRASER accepts four methods of payment: online via PayPal (no account needed) or Bank Deposit; cheque or VISA/Mastercard by telephone (assuming you do not have a PayPal account).

Depending on the age group students who are unable to attend a class may be able to attend a make-up class. In the event of missing a class, there is no refund of fees.

 
 

Term Program Fee Cancellation Policy

A minimum 14 days notice is required should you wish to cancel/postpone/transfer an enrolment in the term program. With 14 days or more notice to us, you will receive a 100% refund of the program fee to your nominated bank account.

If 7 - 14 days notice of cancellation is given we will provide a 50% refund to your nominated bank account.

If less than 7 days notice is provided no refund will be given.

 
 

School Holiday Program Fee Cancellation Policy

A minimum 28 days notice is required should you wish to cancel/postpone an enrolment in the School Holiday Program. With 28 days or more notice to us, you will receive a 100% refund of the program fee to your nominated bank account.

If 14-28 days notice of cancellation is given we will provide a 50% refund to your nominated bank account.

If less than 14 days notice is provided no refund will be given.

 
 

Food Consumption

Term Program:
Food is not served in the term program, but class competitions may award prizes and on rare occasions – for example, a student’s birthday - sweets/chocolates/biscuits/cakes may be offered or brought from home. Where reasonable, staff are made aware of allergies listed on the student enrolment forms. However, students consuming food brought by other students do so at their own risk.

Holiday Program:
As part of the LONGFORD & FRASER Holiday Program, students will be provided with food and drinks during classes. However, we are unable to cater for students with specific dietary requirements or allergies. Parents/guardians of such students must expressly list all special requirements or allergies on the enrolment form and are also responsible for ensuring that their children bring appropriate food and drinks to all Holiday Program classes.

LONGFORD & FRASER Leadership Academy for Boys is not liable for any adverse reactions to food/drink consumed or items a student may come into contact with in the LONGFORD & FRASER classroom or while eating food brought from a student’s home. Students with food allergies attend the LONGFORD & FRASER Holiday Program entirely at their own risk.

 
 

Consequences of breach

Compliance with these terms and conditions (and the reasonable directions of the staff of LONGFORD & FRASER) is important and any student (or parent) who breaches these terms and conditions (or whose behaviour is otherwise deemed unacceptable by LONGFORD & FRASER) may have their son's enrolment cancelled with no entitlement to a refund.
