happens if the weather is bad? Beach Ed runs rain, hail or
shine! Although we have a wet weather programme, many of the
planned activities can continue and we tend to find that you will
get wet in the water anyway!
What if I
need to cancel my Beach Ed booking? If you wish to cancel
your booking entirely then you must give at least 3 weeks' notice.
If a cancellation is made within three weeks of your proposed
booking date you will be invoiced 50% of the total bill. If your
booking is cancelled within 48 hours of the booking date you will
be invoiced 100% of the total bill.
Ed safe? Yes! Beach Ed operates with comprehensive health
and safety practices in place. Please see the health and safety
What do we
bring to Beach Ed? The beach is an ever changing
environment so you will need to pack for all seasons:
- Towel & Togs - Wetsuit (if you have one)
- Warm clothes/Hat
- Sunblock - SPF 30+
- Lunch & Drink
parent helpers do we need? Parents and teachers must
participate in both water and beach activities. We require a
minimum of one adult for every five students in the water. It is
essential that parents and teachers bring their togs and be
prepared to get wet. View a letter to send home to adults who are
volunteering to assist (doc, 104kb).
the programme cost? The price for 2017/2018 is $15.00
inc GST in the greater Auckland area and $13.50 inc GST per student
elsewhere, prices are funding dependent.
How do we
pay for Beach Ed? We will invoice the school on
completion of the programme. Please note, if you turn up with
significantly less students than booked we will charge you for the
booked number of students. This is in circumstances where we have
scheduled extra instructors and must cover this cost. Invoicing in
Auckland may vary.
Is there a
minimum booking number? Yes. In order to cover our
costs we need at least 30 students to attend (Auckland may vary).
If you book for 30 students and less attend your invoice will be
for 30 students.
