A note about our fees…

As a not-for-profit organisation, CircusWA has always endeavoured to keep the costs for all our activities as affordable as possible.

However, to ensure the longer-term viability of CircusWA in 2016 it is necessary for us to increase the cost of our Term fees by 10%

In Term 1 there will be no classes over the Easter Period (Friday 25th, Saturday 26th & Monday 28th March). The term fees for Monday, Friday & Saturday classes have been adjusted to account for these holidays.
There will however be classes on Monday 7 March – Labour Day Public Holiday.

The insurance and administration fee is now payable per term at $10 per student per term.

Term 1 2016

Term 1 runs from Monday 1 February 2016 to Saturday 9th April.
