Once again, we offer the option of paying your school bills securely online via Aladdin Connect. Although the annual school supplies bill is not due until September, many of you like to pay your bills early so we have set up payments for those who wish to do so. Some things to note: 1. If your total bill amount is greater than €80 - you should still ONLY PAY €80 as this is the maximum amount we expect families to pay.

Your bill will then be marked by the school secretary as fully paid 2. You can also choose to pay in instalments - simply put in the amount
