Online e-payments for school meals and other school purchase

As you may be aware Aquinas Diocesan Grammar School have recently introduced iPayimpact online payments. We are trying to encourage all parents to register with the Ipay Impact system for a number of reasons such as;

Your child will not have to waste time queuing to top up their canteen account manually,

  • You will be able to track your child’s account balance and view their purchase history,
  • You will be able to monitor the balance of payments due for any upcoming school trips you child may be attending,
  • You will be able to receive electronic communication from the school regarding future trips and events,
  • You will be able to pay for school shows, stationery packs, exam resits and make voluntary contributions, and
  • The amount of cash you child will be carrying to school will decrease significantly.
