PTA Fees & Stationery

New to school parents

Discovery College uses an Electronic Payment facility in the ESF Gateway for the collection of the PTA and Stationery Fees. Once your eWallet account is set up (generally one week before commencing school), you will need to sign in to Gateway using your parent account to view the invoice amount found under the payment tab.

If you have any queries please do not hesitate to contact the PTA by emailing

Existing Parents

The DC PTA and Stationery Fees for the academic school year 2020-2021 will be available for payment one week before commencing school in August. Please log into Gateway to find the invoice under the payment tab.

PTA Fee – To be paid by all families

It is a requirement of the English Schools Foundation Ordinance that all parents of Discovery College join the DCPTA. The annual fee is $450 per family and must be paid before signing up for the peripatetic music programme or booking the school bus service. PTA fees will be deducted from the eWallet account of the youngest enrolled sibling of each family.


To ensure all students have the required materials for the start of the school term, the DCPTA facilitates the pre-ordering and distribution of the mandatory stationery pack to your child(s) classroom at the beginning of the school year.

All Stationery items are detailed by year group in the lists below.

Mandatory Stationery Pack

Years 1-7: Payment will be made through your Discovery College eWallet account and delivered directly to the classroom at the beginning of the school year. Any Year 7 student joining after Wednesday 12 August will buy their exercise books directly from the Reception.

Additional Mandatory Stationery Items

Parents may source and purchase these items from any shop of their choice.  Please ensure your child comes to school on the first day with each of the items listed. It is suggested to clearly label each item.

Years 8-13: Existing students may have space in their current exercise books so there is no Mandatory Stationery Pack. Instead students can come to the Reception when they need additional exercise books. Please note the $450 PTA fee is still due even if the student is not buying a stationery pack.
