Your confirmation email will read that you must bring it, but we are unable to change this setting and it is not required. A second automated confirmation will arrive in your inbox 3 days prior to the event to remind you that it is on.

The tables are approx 30cm off the ground. A set of earphones to plug into our transmitter system allowing you to hear every word the teacher is saying as if they are standing right next to you.
