However, if you do not have a debit or credit card, you may pay at the school reception between 9:00am and 4:00pm, Monday - Friday.  Payment may be made by cash or cheque, (cheques to be made payable to CGGS).  To enable us to deal with your transaction efficiently, and to save you time, you should complete the application form before you visit the school to make your payment.
