Student Cafeteria Cards
A student’s ID card will also act as their Cafeteria card. At Orientation parents will be invited to the Cafeteria to prepay the cards. Parents will be able to charge the cards up to a certain amount, meaning that each meal will in effect be paid for in advance for a specified period of time.
Lunch cards can be reloaded at anytime when funds are transferred to: Woori Bank, Account #1005-902-088004 (receiver: Arako). Please allow 2-3 business days for confirming the payment.
Price of Meals
Each meal purchased at Aramark will be provided at a set price of 5000 won. This cost will be referred to as a ‘unit’. Students or parents will be able to purchase multiple units in advance. For example, one month’s worth of units or one semester’s worth of units can be purchased at the start of the semester.
Dwight School Seoul guarantees that every student will have access to lunch, whether or not the child can pay for the meal at the moment or not. Dwight supervisory staff on duty will use a special ‘School Card’ to buy lunch for the children who have either lost their card or have no money charged on it. The student’s name and number will be recorded, along with the reason why the child is not able to buy their lunch. This information will then be passed on to Accounting, who will then notify and bill the parents. However, this system will only be used in exceptional circumstances, and all students will be expected to have paid for their meals either in advance or at the moment of purchase.
