Child safety guidelines

The welfare of our students is our primary concern

  2. You must advice us of any medical conditions, allergies and/or special learning needs. All such information will remain confidential.

  3. Students must arrive for their class at the stated time, accompanied by an adult (parent/caregiver).

  4. Centre will not be held responsible for the safety of children who arrive at class and are left unattended by caregivers.

  5. If no one has arrived to pick up the child at the end of class, the centre will attempt to contact parents/caregivers, using the emergency details supplied at the time of enrolment.

Safe Measurements

Masks-wearing is now optional. 

Accidents and Emergency

Our staff are trained in Child First-aid and CPR. Parents/caregivers will be contacted immediately and staff will perform appropriate first aid and if necessary call an ambulance.

 

Recitals and Events

Our centre organises drum camps, recitals and events annually. Some are free and some payable. Students are encouraged to participate in them to grow their repertoire and build experience. Recitals aim to provide opportunities for students to showcase what they have learnt and also perform in groups, once ready. The showcase allows parents and teachers to meet and get together and be part of their child’s learning journey. DPSG will also organise virtual events, recitals and webinars where you can participate.

 

Exam opportunities

While it is highly recommended that all students participate in exams, it is not compulsory. If you do not wish to participate in exams, you will simply progress to the next syllabus/level once complete.

Exam fees are not included as part of the tuition fee and you are required to pay additional fees for exams. For more information on exams, please contact our admin.

Teachers/Teaching Artistes

We understand students and parents build strong relationships with their DPSG teacher, However teacher changes are sometimes necessary in various circumstances. All DPSG teachers are highly qualified and have undergone a rigorous selection and training program to deliver classes with high standards according to our protocols. There are also strong benefits in getting exposed to a variety of teaching artistes at DPSG.

 

Our teachers are dedicating their weekends as well to work. Appreciate your understanding when they are on leave. Reschedule of classes will only be necessary if we are unable to find a replacement teacher at that time.

Our teachers are not allowed to exchange contacts with clients. All communications are via our school lines.
