Spanish Club is a fun and interactive language club for South Morningside Primary School children of all ages. This structured but fun programme for 4-12 year olds has been used successfully throughout the U.K for the last 30 years. The classes include games, songs and activities. The classes are taught by the award winning La Jolie Ronde language school, who have been at the forefront of early language development since 1983.

Club Convenor: Shiefra Headey
Club email: firstname.lastname@example.org
Tutors: La Jolie Ronde will allocate staff at the beginning of each school year.
Allocation of spaces: New pupils are invited to contact the Club Convenor who will provide a Club Registration form and information on appropriate class vacancies. Priority is given to existing club members allowing members to build on their knowledge.
Club Convenor’s children are always given a priority place in the club. Please contact the Club Convenor should you wish to take advantage of this privilege by offering to take on this position in future.
Cost: P1 & P2 Deanbank (30 minute class) – £4.85 per class and P3 – P7 Main School (45 minutes class) – £5.85 per class. All students are also required to purchase a book/CD pack to follow the course at a cost of £18.95. This book will last the student until they reach the next level up.
A child’s space is not guaranteed until payment is received. All payment is due PRIOR to clubs starting. Failure to do so could result in your child not being admitted in to the club.
Cheques are to be written to SMPC, envelopes marked ‘Spanish Club’ & posted in the Clubs Box by the Janitor’s Office (Main School) or by Reception (Deanbank).
Parent Volunteers required: No
Refunds: Very occasionally classes need to be cancelled (e.g. instructor sickness). SMPC policy is that refunds will only be given in exceptional circumstances at the individual club’s discretion as offering refunds when this happens involves a lot of work for relatively small amounts of money. If, after accepting & paying for a place, your child subsequently does not take the place / drops out / changes their mind, a refund will not be given.
Parents are kindly reminded that SMPC Clubs only operate thanks to a school parent who volunteers to act as Club Convenor & run the administrative side of the club. Parents are requested to respect the efforts of each Club Convenor.
