FAQs: Online School Payments
Is registering for online payment mandatory and will cheque or cash still be accepted?
Participation in online payment is highly encouraged. During our transition to online payment, parents and guardians will still be able to pay by cheque or cash for school activities, if they wish.
Cheque is the preferred option in this case because it helps to minimize the amount of cash in schools, and increases the safety of students who no longer need to carry large sums for payment.
