Payment to external vendors will include a one-time payment for the semester and will be due no later than the second week after the activity begins. CCAs can be paid in cash or via bank transfer. Cash payment can be made in the uniform shop at the start or end of the school day, or at the finance office. CCA payment can also be made via bank transfer. Please see the RAS bank information in section X.
To clarify, if the activity begins on Monday the 2nd, the payment is due by Monday the 9th. Students who do not provide payment on time will not be allowed to participate until payment is provided.
Students are allowed to change activities after session 1. If they choose to continue with the activity, payment must be made before the 2nd session of the activity. Any further changes are at the discretion of the School Principal or the Athletics & Activities Director.
Students who join RAS as rolling admissions will be given a prorated fee for activities run by external vendors, depending on the date they start the CCA. If students start during session 4 of 8, the student will be required to pay for the 5 remaining sessions.
Dropping Out/ Switching of Activities
Students are given one session to determine if they enjoy the activity. This session is to be paid for if it is a PAID CCA. Once the student joins the second session, the student will not be able to change activities anymore during the CCA Season. For paid CCAs, full payment for the activity should be made. Once a student has paid for a CCA, no refunds will be given unless there are exceptional circumstances.
If a student did not initially sign up for an activity but wants to join later, they might be given the opportunity upon permission from the Activity Director.
Pick Up/ CCA Bus
Monday to Thursday, the CCA bus will leave promptly at 4:30 pm. On Friday, the CCA Bus will leave at 2:30 pm. The CCA supervisor will lead students who are taking the bus to the bus boarding area. All students who are picked up by a parent or driver must be picked up at the regular pick-up areas at 4:15 pm promptly. If the student’s parent/guardian/driver is late due to an emergency, please notify the main desk.
Cancellations & Make-Up Days
If an external provider misses a session, a makeup day will be provided, or payment will be prorated. If a student misses a session, the session will be forfeited, and no refund will be provided unless there are exceptional circumstances. If the weather is the reason for a delay or cancellation, activity supervisors are instructed to provide training or alternative activities indoors. If circumstances do not allow for the alternative, and the session needs to be canceled, a makeup day will be provided at the end of the CCA Season. If a student is unable to attend a makeup session, they will not be able to seek another makeup session and will not be given a refund for that session.
For paid swimming sessions, if the weather prevents the students from performing in the pool, then a Teaching Assistant will take the students to the ‘Tricycle Room’ for the remaining time.
If the students had less than 20 mins in the water, a make-up session will be organized as mentioned above.
Enrollment Minimums/ Maximums
Each CCA will have a minimum and a maximum number of students to ensure an effective, safe, and productive program.
There will be a 3-person minimum for each CCA (some exceptions apply). For those CCAs that do not meet a 3-person minimum, the activity will be dropped from the CCA program. Students who have signed up for that CCA will be provided the opportunity to sign up for an alternative activity.
The maximum number of students allowed in the CCA is dependent on the age group, resources, and the number of supervisors per activity.
