Frequently Asked Questions
ID cards will be distributed to grades 1 to 12
Yes, in efforts to preserve safety and security in school, all students must wear their ID cards at all times. Secondary school students will keep their ID cards with them and will bring them home, while Primary School students will have their ID cards kept in school and distributed every morning.
Canteen areas will be allowed to accept cash only one month after card distribution (during March 2017). After that, students are required to pay only through their cards.
Students in this case will receive a temporary badge that will be available in secretaries offices, and has to return it back to at the end of the school day. However, after March 2017, the cafeteria will no longer accept cash, and any student without his/her ID card will not be able to buy any food.
A form will be sent out to each student in school, which has to be filled and brought back with a one-time fee of BD15. The school will then distribute cards to students in classrooms according to the divisional principal’s instructions.
Students who lose their cards are to pay 2 BD to the school for us to issue a new card.
Topping up students accounts is done through our Cashier, who is available in the reception area of the admin building. A beginning balance of 1 BD will be accredited to the account of each student.
No, the cashier will be able to top-up your kids’ accounts when you specify your name. Knowing your family ID or your kid’s ID is helpful but not necessary.
If you are to topup any of your kid’s balance, the minimum is 5 BD per student.
We will have the balance available on PowerSchool for each of the kids. Or you can contact the school through live chat to inquire about the balance.
As for transactions, a receipt will be printed after each transaction that parents can check, and soon we will be developing the ability to subscribe to receive an email on daily, weekly, or monthly basis of detailed transactions.
