Introducing Schools Buddy - Simplifying the Sign-Up Process

We are thrilled to introduce Schoolsbuddy, an innovative online platform that will revolutionize how parents sign up for our co-curricular activities. Schoolsbuddy is designed to enhance communication, collaboration, and organization within our school community, making it easier for parents to access information about our programs.

One of the standout features of Schoolsbuddy is its ability to provide comprehensive information about Co-curricular Activities (CCAs). By logging in to their Schoolsbuddy accounts, parents can easily explore the wide range of CCAs available for their children this year.

Important Dates and Sign-Up Process

  • Sign-up for Co-curricular Activities will be open from 7:00 AM on August 24 to 11:00 AM on August 30, 2023.

  • Prior to signing up, we recommend reading the activity descriptions carefully for advanced preparation and to check for any payment requirements.

  • The sign-up process can be completed through our Schoolsbuddy platform. A step-by-step guide can be found here.

  • In case you need support with the system, our IT helpdesk can be reached at

Preferences-Based Clubs and Activities Registration

To ensure a convenient and efficient selection process, a preferences-based selection system for Clubs and Activities has been implemented.

The Clubs and Activities Team, along with the IT team, will be available at the Primary Cafeteria area from 8:00 AM to 9:00 AM on August 23, 24, and 25 to assist with any inquiries or concerns related to Schoolsbuddy or the sign-up process.
