On LinePayments

The following letter has been sent to everybody today.

Dear Parents

We hope everybody had an enjoyable summer.  We are looking forward to welcoming everybody back on Wednesday August 31st.

We have been working very hard over the summer to make sure the classrooms and the building in general are in tip top shape within the constraints of the age of the structure and all the challenges that presents!  We hope the boys will notice the improvements.

The office is now open for any queries you may have and the Website www.ballyroanboysschool.ie  also has a lot of the information you might need including the Academic Calendar and the Book lists.

We are delighted to announce that we are introducing an online payment system, Aladdin ePayment, for parents/guardians of children in our school.

Our school uses the Aladdin software service for administrative purposes and the ePayment system will give you access from an internet browser on your computer, phone or tablet to make secure payments to the school using your credit or debit card.  The purpose of the ePayment system is to facilitate the easier payment of school money collections for parent/guardians and to reduce the risk associated with cash and cheques being sent into our school.

Aladdin uses state of the art security to safeguard information entered by you and the school and data is stored and processed in strict compliance with Irish data protection laws.

The Section A payment and School Contribution payment which are detailed on your son’s book list will be due for payment in September.  Within the next few days you will receive a text/email message containing your payment access link.  This will bring you to a parent payment page which will contain all payments requested for all siblings in a family.  There is only one link per family, ensuring you have the option to pay all amounts due for all your children in one transaction. Once you have completed your payment, you will be issued with a reference number. You will also receive an email receipt which will contain details of the transaction and a reference number. Please quote this reference number in any queries you may have as regards this payment to the school.

We hope that you will find the Aladdin ePayments facility useful and that it is a very successful system for all.

We will welcome any feedback or questions you may have.

Yours sincerely,

Des Morris
