Some courses consist of 9 lessons of 1 1/4 hours conducted during the 4 standard school terms.
Other short courses range from one to three lessons. Course fees are very low, ranging from $10 to $25. This cost includes notes and in some cases other student material.
Courses available each term depend on availability of tutors and student interest.
Each course is conducted on a specific day of the week and time.
Our classroom is set up for a maximum of 10 students, although some courses can cater for more.
There are 12 computers all connected to the Internet. One is a spare and one is used by the tutor for demonstrations projected onto a large screen. There is one digital projector in the classroom.
There are 3 printers connected to all computers. In most of the courses, students are able to printout their achievements.
One printer has the facility to scan photos and documents also to print on CD/DVDs.
Laptops and a second projector are available for Interest groups and the Club monthly meeting.
Most courses have a tutor and 2 or 3 helpers, providing individual assistance as needed.
Printed, detailed step by step, tutorials are provided to each student, as a guide during lessons and when practicing at home. These also prove to be a valuable memory refresher for later use.
Parking is available in the grounds. If you park in the double spots directly in front of the club, you are required to park up to the kerb so that another person can park behind you. If you find someone behind you, you can ask them to let you out.
Alternatively you can park in the single spots beside the club rooms.
