School broke up last Friday but the offices are normally manned during the holidays. If summer school coordinator is off this week I imagine one of bursary/finance team might be in. Have you tried phoning Elmhurst?

Hi Jane, I tried ringing them but nobody answers... Do you know when the team comes back?

Well we've had 2 emails from school in last 2 days so assume some one is around and they are not sending from home. Are you getting the option to for different departments as reception is closed? If you are I would try them all.

Good idea, I will try that. So far, I've only tried the registrar office. Thank you Jane!

I have a question regarding what they need to take. In the letter it said black track suit, do you think just black trousers and jumper will be okay as ds doesn't have any 'track suits'. Also, do they have to wear a leotard every day or can boys wear shorts and t shirt? Just not sure what to send him with. He normally dances in a fitted t shirt and cycle type shorts. Thank you :)

well dd did not take tracksuit last year and wasn't thrown into the street :) . She had a long sleeved zip up hoody and some dark coloured loose fit leggings. I think its so they can cover up and keep warm between classes - adnd especially in the cafeteria .

It was too hot for tracksuits last year - dd packed a couple hoodies and some tracksuit trousers but in reality it was so hot and humid she just put a thin t shirt and some shorts on for meals. If I remember rightly they just had to cover their leotards and not go into the canteen with bare shoulders.

I'm still getting my head around the no aerosols bit... Not sure how my DD will cope without her usual whaft of deodorant and body spray! Heehee

It might be to do with very sensitive fire alarms, they can be set off by aerosols - as we found out to our cost in a theatre mid-performance once, when the alarms went off and we had to evacuate everybody (oh the joys of being a chaperone that day :wacko: ). The fire brigade said it was hairspray.

 

I suggest roll-on deodorant and spritz hairspray!

Afab did you manage to get hold of someone? Hope it is resolved.

He will need dance wear for each day as it is a full on course and they don't have access to the washing machines unless he is keen to hand wash his dance wear!

I don't have access to the paperwork but does it suggest an outfit for the performance? In a previous year girls had to have a black leotard of any style for this. If the other boys are wearing leotards and tights on stage he might feel conspicuous if dressed differently although I'm don't think the faculty will mind what he wears as long as they can see his body during class.

Unfortunately no Jane, I have rang at different times, tried different extensions and left messages but nobody will answer until next week, I'm afraid... It might be too late for us anyway by then...

I couldn't get to speak to anyone but left a note.  Will it be ok for them to contact you on Monday?  Apparently that's when SS staff are in.

Please can I ask those who have been before if they can remember what time it finishes on the last day, as my head is like a sieve, thanks!

Thanks I thought it was probably about that, we just need to go somewhere else after and need to know what time we're likely to be able to get there!

Anyone had any more information from them apart from clothing orders which seemed to come with no size charts, or am I just being silly!?

It seems to be either small, medium or large, dd not ordering anything this time though. Perhaps you could email them with measurements and ask which size would be best?

From memory the summer school clothing sizings were unpredictable last year....

Can anyone tell me if they need to take any money with them?

Plus, what in the way of home clothes, smarter outfit or anything along those lines?

Finding the info a bit lacking in detail!!! Thanks in advance...

They are not allowed off site so unless they need anything in emergency which houseparents will pick up for them then not much money.

 

My dd will just take some casual wear, jeans, shorts etc for evenings. Dance wear plus cover ups for between classes.
