FlexiSchools' cashless card system links a students’ existing school ID card to their FlexiSchools account, allowing them to purchase securely without the need for cash.

A FlexiSchools account can be set up online and pre-loaded the account with funds. Students make purchases at the Tuckshop by scanning/ swiping their card at the cash register. On-screen photo ID security protects your account from lost or stolen cards.
