What is my account number?
The school has a five digit account number that starts with "6" for every family. Children of the same family use the same account. The account number should be given to avail of services within the school.
How do I give pocket money to my child(ren)?
Pocket money is distributed on a monthly basis from August onwards by the school either through the residential parent or through the finance office depending upon the grade. Parents are required to indicate the amount of pocket money they would allow on the parent consent form. There is a ceiling on the pocket money allowed. The pocket money is charged to your account and is paid out of the advance for personal expenses. You may leave some money with your child(ren) for spending in July. The school does not encourage you to otherwise leave large sums of money with your child(ren).
What are gymkhana coupons?
Gymkhana coupons are used to buy snacks and drinks from the gymkhana. Student Residence parents issue the coupons to resident students based on the amount indicated by the parents on the parent consent form. The gymkhana coupons issued are charged to your account and paid out of the advance for personal expenses.
Is the advance for expenses adequate?
The advance is adequate for reasonable expenditure. It will not cover heavy purchases e.g. thumb drives every week.
What are student residence charges?
If you wish your child(ren) to have extra fruit and milk, these are provided by the residential parent and charged to your account. Laundry expenses are charged to your account on actual cost basis and also form part of student residence charges.
My child has asked me for extra money – how do I get it to him/her?
How do I know when to send more money?
Parents' accounts are available online. The IT department will explain how to login and access information. Should your balance be depleted, you will receive a communication from the finance office.
My child seems to be buying a lot in the stockroom. How do I see what he/she is buying?
The stockroom purchases are available online along with the accounts. By clicking on the tab, you will be able to see a detailed list of purchases.
Will I get a printed statement of account from the school?
Printed statements are sent every three months. Receipts for any remittances during this period, and stockroom acknowledgement slips are included in this mailing.
When do I pay fees for the next semester?
Fees for the next semester are due as on the last day of the current semester. The finance office will generate invoices by the end of October and send them out. There is a penalty for late payment and so parents are advised to make their remittance in time.
