But do take note that if public holiday falls on a weekend, lesson will still be conducted unless it is Chinese New Year period.

A: Lessons are still on-going during school holidays. If students would like to take time-off during school holidays, he/she will need to inform the school two weeks in advance. Time-off is only allowed during school holidays and maximum for 2 weeks.
Q: WHAT IF STUDENT MISSES HIS/HER SCHEDULED MATH LESSON?
A: If a student misses a scheduled lesson, he/she is allowed to attend a make-up lesson in another time slot. However, this depends on the availability of a seat in the other class and provided that Math Coffee is notified of the canceled lesson within 48 hours. The make-up lesson has to be in the month of the missed lesson. MC needs to be provided for calling in sick.
Please understand that Math Coffee’s schedules are pre-planned and so unnecessary cancellation of lessons will cause inconvenience and unfairness to Math Coffee as well as other students who are in need of the slots =)
