We are pleased to advise you that the Halton Catholic District School Board has completed the implementation of a new online payment initiative – School Cash Online.

School Cash Online provides parents with easy access and convenience at any time to make online payments for a variety of student activities, while maintaining an electronic receipt history for items purchased and providing greater flexibility and control on how payments are made to the school. This new online payment method will also help reduce the risk of theft and cash misplacement.

This new initiative was introduced throughout our Board in 3 phases, and St. Thomas Aquinas Catholic Secondary School was part of the third phase of implementation which is now “Live”.

For more information including an FAQ, the benefits of this program, and how to register for School Cash Online, please visit: http://www.hcdsb.org/Parents/Pages/School-Cash-Online.aspx
