Invoices will be being sent out shortly. Please make your payments as soon as possible once you have received your invoice. Payments may be made by cheque, cash, or e-transfer. If payment is being made in cheque or cash, please ensure that it is in an envelope with the student's name clearly printed on the outside. When bringing payment in to class, it may be placed on the white binder on the stage or given to the Chef de Salle or l'Assistant de Salle.
Congratulations Mr. Abello
As both the Chef de Salle and l'Assistante de Salle have begun university and therefore will be more inconsistent in their attendance, it has been decided that Mr. Juan Abello will be appointed as the Acting Deputy of the Chef de Salle. The Chef's Deputy is an Officer of the Salle who is responsible for acting as the eyes and ears of the Chef and l'Assistante when they are both absent. He has the responsibility for ensuring the rules of the Salle are followed, and has the power to deal with minor infractions while reporting more major or repeated infractions to the Chef. Please treat Mr. Abello as you would any Officer of the Salle.
