Primary School Procedures
Early Learning, Grades 1 - 2
Parents with children in Early Learning through to Grade 2 are asked to order all hot meals in advance.
Meals may be ordered online up until 8:00 on the morning the meal is required. Equally, if for any reason the pre-ordered meal needs to be canceled, this may also be canceled online before 8:00 on the day the meal was booked without incurring any costs.
The cost of the set pre-ordered meals in the Early Learning and Grades 1 - 2 is €3,80.
For this price, students are able to choose between three daily menus, at least one of which is always vegetarian. In addition to the main component and a choice of side dishes, students also receive a salad, small dessert and a drink of either water or milk.
Should a child require a hot meal, but no order was placed online, parents will be charged €4,00 for the additional administrative costs.

Parents are invoiced at the end of each month for all meals consumed. An online payment method is available within the online order platform CHQ. As soon as the monthly invoices are sent to parents, a "Pay Now" button is made visible to parents on the online order platform via which all invoices may be settled. This is only available for a limited time, as communicated on the monthly invoice.
Despite the Pay Pal logo showing up, parents may also pay via bank transfer.The outstanding balance to pay each time can include several months if the previous invoices were not paid.
Please note that we will invoice all parents an additional € 50 security deposit to cover any missed payments. This deposit will be used to help pay the last invoice before the student leaves Bonn International School.
Grades 3 – 5
Students in Grades 3 – 5 may decide each day which hot meal they wish to choose from the selection on offer. In addition to the main component and a choice of side dishes, students also receive a salad, small dessert and a drink of either water or milk.
The cost of the set meals purchased is € 4,00.
A list of meals for each week of school may be found on the Lunch Menu page. These menus are uploaded to this page usually at least four weeks in advance.
Students in Grades 3 – 5 pay for their meals with their school ID cards. These cards can be loaded with money using the cash loader in the Waves Foyer, or before and after school at the cashiers.
**During the 2018-2019 school year, the ability to load money via online transfer for this age group will be made available.
