Schools have been asked to remind their community to monitor the South Australia Health website, especially if you have travelled to South Australia recently:

The STM Community Council have endorsed the use of this application for future payments in line with moving to a cash free school. This will include fundraising events, special food days, donations and will also extend to payment of school fees in the future. QKR will allow parents to make payments from the convenience of their mobile or device at any time.
Our first QKR launch will be the Mission Fair to be held on Wednesday 8th December.
