FAQs

What 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.

Is Beach Ed safe? Yes! Beach Ed operates with comprehensive health and safety practices in place. Please see the health and safety link.

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

How many 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).

What does 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.
