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 pta@discovery.edu.hk

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 make sure you have sufficient funds in each of your child’s ePayment accounts prior to this date.

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 $300 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, Discovery College facilitates the pre-ordering and distribution of the mandatory stationery pack. Primary through Year 7 stationery packs will be distributed directly to classrooms and learning teams.  Year 8 – 12 students in need of stationery may purchase necessary items from the main office.

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 11 August will buy their exercise books directly from the Reception.

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.

Stationery items available in the main office are as follows (CASH ONLY):

  • Library Bags – $81.50

  • Secondary Calculators – $1,240

  • Exercise Books – $10.00 – $12.50

  • Sketch Book (Year 6 Exhibition and Year 7+) – $39.50
