Information & Organisation specific to the Peter Pan Course
There are two kinds of participants
Non residential: local students
Residential: those who board and take all their meals at Llandovery for the duration of the course. At
Llandovery : most of the very spacious bedrooms are shared between 2, 3 or 4 participants; we have now a large number of very comfortable single bedrooms
We usually give the largest shared bedrooms to young people and the double bedrooms to couples or families.
Adults or siblings wishing to accompany students may also be accommodated at Moreton Hall School (board and lodging) per day. This fee comprises the use of the sporting facilities.
All applications must be made in advance. We must however emphasize that Llandovery College is not a hotel (no double beds, and there are more showers than bathtubs!).
Particular care will be taken to provide balanced and enjoyable menus; full English breakfast, « continental » dishes for lunch and dinner
Organisation (please read carefully)
The Peter Pan group is made up of accompanied children 4 to 10; We take only 20 children
Accompanied students can share their parent's bedroom. Those children are expected nevertheless to follow the daily timetable and rules of the course.
There is a time by which all children have to be in their bedrooms irrespective of whether they are accompanied . Parents on the course have to make sure that their children observe this time.
There will be no exemption and parents must be aware of it. We have neither time nor inclination to waste time on discipline. There are better ways to enjoy the course.
Parents present on the course are not permitted to impose their choices or discipline on any child who is not theirs.
All disciplinary decisions are the organizer's responsibility and prerogative.
We are aware that it may appear to be a rather rigid rule but we trust that caring and understanding parents will understand the idea behind it. This is not negotiable.
Social life evolves mainly around music making,
There are several tennis courts and the swimming pool is round the corner
For parents: There are lots of pubs within walking distance from Llandovery and commodities stores
A certificate of insurance against civil liability, theft, and physical injury must be sent with the final payment, at the latest.
We particularly draw your attention to the need to insure musical instruments as well (loss and theft).
Non-European students must hold a medical insurance.
Use of all sports equipment at the school is free.
Applications will be treated on a first come first served basis. Nevertheless, the Course Directors reserve the right to cancel the course if the number of applicants is deemed to be too low 3 months before the starting date of the 2008 course. In this instance, the total amount already paid will be refunded in full and no other type of compensation will be given.
We had to turn down 20 applications in Summer 2006
If a participant decides to cancel after the 1rstMay 2009, the registration fees shall not be refunded. If cancellation takes place after the 1rst June, no refund of deposit or total fees will be possible.
The balance of fees is due on or before 1rst June 2009 after which date any reserved accommodation not paid for in full will be re-let.
We strongly recommend that you take out insurance to cover cancellation costs.
Llandovery College has a very strict indoors non-smoking policy. Anyone breaking this rule in their bedroom or in the common rooms will be asked to leave the course and there will be no refund of fees.
Language tuition is usually held during the mornings. Afternoons are reserved for music tuition, choir and sports activity (tennis and swimming). While their children go to language classes parents can register for language tuition as well.
The LMFL summer courses have set as their objectives
- Creating a highly motivating musical atmosphere for all participants, and
- Encouraging social interaction between all in order to give each student the feeling of belonging to one big musical family.
