  • Our classroom is 84sqm and we can accommodate up to 20 people (or two classes of 10 people) which sees us abiding by the current 4sqm per/person rule. However, we will not necessarily book to capacity. It will depend on the class.

  • Hand dryers will be installed in the toilets. 
  • Upon entering the store all customers will use the hand sanitiser that will be supplied on the bench near the door.
