Invoice, Receipt & Statement

Invoices will be issued via the Payment System during each school year and notifications will be sent to parents by email. Parents are advised to keep their email addresses updated (Gateway > Student Profile > Student Demographics > Family Information) and settle all invoices in a timely manner.  Once they are overdue, parents will not be able to skip them when making a payment for other invoices. For parents who experience financial difficulties, please contact our Finance Team at finance@kjs.edu.hk to explore further solutions.

No matter whether invoices are paid, outstanding or cancelled, parents can view, print or download them through the system. All transactions can be found under the Statement section, including receipts.
