Free School Meals & Clothing Grants

When your child starts school in P1 and until they finish P3, they will receive a free school meal from Government Funding. Once they reach P4 stage, then those families not eligible for free school meals will have to pay.

Payments for lunches can no longer be made in cash at the school. They now have to be made through a booking system called ParentPay. You can create a new account or login to your existing account using the link below.
