All school fees invoice have been e-mailed to you last week. The e-mail has been delivered to the parent/guardian responsible for your child. If you receive an e-mail entitled School Fees Invoice with nothing on it or no attachment, it is because your e-mail address is entered in our system, but according to this system, the other parent is responsible. Please note that this is our first try and mistakes may be made. If you have not received an invoice or if we have sent the invoice to the wrong person, please contact Ms. Colleen Copping and we will automatically fix our mistake. As a reminder, all school fees (from this year and previous years) must be paid if a student wishes to participate in any extracurricular activities. That includes prom night and the graduation ceremony. Payment arrangements are possible. Please call Ms. Colleen Copping at Extension 8115.
