Scoil Phádraig Naofa rolled out the Aladdin ePayment System to parents/guardians of children in our school during the school year 2017/2018. The system proved to be a tremendous success and has made the collection of money safer for both parents and children.
Below are details of how the system works:
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 parents/guardians and to reduce the amount of cash and cheques being sent into our school in line with recent central bank directives.
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.
Going forward, when money is due for any school activity that is relevant to your children, you will receive a text/app notification 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 reference number. Please quote this reference number in any queries you may have as regards this payment with the school.
Our school office has extended the facility to enable the collection of requisite money, book rental, and all other expenses. Parents will receive an email before the end of this school year which will provide you with a link. On the link you will receive details of the money owed to the school.
We hope that you will find the Aladdin ePayments facility useful and that it is a very successful system for all. The secretary or Mr O’Gorman will welcome any feedback or questions you may have.
