PAPA COVID-19 Guidelines

Classes and school holiday workshops will continue to go ahead in person following government health advice. The health and safety of our students, staff and family members is our top priority. We appreciate your help in following these guidelines.


  • All PAPA staff are fully vaccinated.

  • During mask mandates all staff and students 12 years and older will wear masks during their classes except when doing vigorous exercise. Teachers may remove masks temporarily when required for teaching. Parents/guardians must wear a mask at pick up/drop off and maintain physical distancing where possible.

  • Parents/guardians are not permitted to stay and watch during classes to limit the number of people in the building and to avoid distraction of students.

  • DO NOT ATTEND classes if you are unwell. Students showing symptoms that could be linked to COVID-19 will be sent home immediately.

  • We follow current Government guidelines on capacity limits eg the 2sqm rule and will notify you as soon as possible in the unlikely event of any venue changes.




  • All classes will immediately continue online at their usual time slots.

  • Online class plans have been specially designed to ensure an enjoyable, interactive and social experience for all students.

  • If a lockdown situation lasts for more than 7 days class times may vary from the usual timetable.



  • Planned performances will go ahead when safe to do so.

  • In most cases concerts will go ahead as we hire larger venues than necessary in case capacity limits are introduced and so that physical distancing is possible.

  • Any cancellations will be announced as soon as possible and any concert fees paid will be refunded.


  • In the unlikely event that we need to cancel workshops due to COVID-19 we will notify you via text message and email and a full refund will be provided. We will then offer online options to keep the kids entertained if possible.

  • If your child is unable to attend because they are self-isolating please notify us in writing as soon as possible and we will provide a full credit towards a future workshop or refund if requested. Parents must notify us BEFORE the commencement of the workshop if they are unable to attend due to isolation.

  • If a positive case is identified to have attended one of our workshops you will be notified as soon as possible via text message. 

  • If a performance is unable to go ahead due to capacity limits we will notify you ahead of time and the performance will be filmed and sent to you as soon as possible after the workshops.
