NEW PARENT PORTAL:
We have a new enrollment system/software which in turn provides parents with their own Parent Portal. Within the portal parents can keep contact details up to date, enrol in classes, view their students class schedules, add a credit card and make credit card payments with the click of a button, view account balances owing for fees (which is itemized if you have multiple classes or students) plus so many more useful features. You can login anytime once your account has been set up, it only takes two minutes to register.

TERM ONE FEES:
Please ensure you have made payment of all term fees prior to the start of Term 1 as some of our classes are already full and this means you will need to make a payment to hold your spot. Payment can be made via the following methods: internet banking, cash in office (our teachers cannot take cash from students or parents sorry), cheque or credit card. Please Note Rise NO longer charges any credit card fees for payment via this method and parents can easily log into the secure parent portal and make payment.
