I’m afraid I am going to have to get stricter about payment as this year I received too many wrong cheques, and some very late payments and in a few cases no payment. Some groups have started charging late payment, I really don’t want to do this, it’s not in my or our groups nature, so please be respectful and follow the steps below.
FEES NEED TO BE PAID BY THE FIRST DAY OF EACH TERM PLEASE.
