Primary School Procedures
Parents with children in Early Learning through to Grade 2 are asked to order all hot meals in advance online.
Meals may be ordered online up until 8:00 on the morning the meal is required. If for any reason the preordered meal needs to be changed or canceled, this may also be canceled online up to 12:00 of the previous day the meal is booked without incurring any costs.
In extenuating circumstance, you can purchase a “same day” meal band in the cafeteria between 8:00 and 8:15.
We also encourage parents of students in Grades 3–5 to preorder their meals online. Students in Grades 3 – 5, however, may alternatively decide each day themselves which hot meal they wish to choose from the selection on offer and 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. Alternatively, parents may choose to load their child's ID card online. The cost of the set pre-ordered meals in Primary School is €4,00.
For this price, students may 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 (eg. vegetables, potatoes, rice), students also receive a salad, small dessert and water.

Parents who preorder meals online are invoiced at the end of each month for all meals consumed. An online payment method is available within the preorder platform CHQ. As soon as the monthly invoices are sent to parents, a "Pay Now" button is made visible to parents on the 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.
**Parents who wish to load money to their child's ID card via the online service need to set up the account by following the link sent to them in August. A Parents Guide to Using the Cafeteria ID Cards outlines the procedure in visual steps.
