Credit Card Payments
We use our Musac Edge online payment system. This lets you get updates of amounts owing to school as well as make payments of whole or part bills via credit card or debit visa/mastercard. It automatically issues receipts too. Here’s how to get started:
Go the this website: https://parent.musac.school.nz/
Either click on a social media login on the left or enter the email address you gave us (the one your school statements are sent to) on the right.
On your first use, if you entered an email address now click “Forgot password?”. This will ask you to choose and confirm a password. Confirm it then login.
You’re now in the portal page for your children. You’ll see their names along the top like this…
Click on a child then click “School payments”. You’ll see a screen like this
If you wish to pay all outstanding amounts (including optional items), click 'Pay All'. If you wish to pay particular lines, click ‘Pay” for that line. If you wish to make a part payment, type the amount in the box. The total of all items is displayed at the bottom
When you are happy, click “Make Payment” which directs you to the Paystation™ site, where instructions guide you through the payment process.
You’ll also see other information in Edge including your child’s attendance and your contact details and medical notes. You can update these details yourself anytime.
We really hope this makes keeping track of bills and making payments as easy as possible.

Required vs optional payments
Required payments for goods and services:
The following goods, services and activities will be charged for:
Optional payments for goods and services:
Paying for items where there has been a “request for payment” is completely optional. These items are clearly indicated with the word OPTIONAL on your statement.
The following goods and activities are examples where a “request for payment” will be made and where payment is optional:
The items still appear on your statement but with the word OPTIONAL next to them. At the bottom of the statement it says “Payment is optional for any items with the word optional beside them. We really hope you are able to pay for these so that we can continue to offer these exciting opportunities.”
As it says above, we really hope you can pay for these kinds of special activities and opportunities so we are able to keep offering them to everyone. We will never request payment for run of the mill, everyday items that we use in school, just the special “extra” stuff! Many thanks in advance.
Our terms for payment
Our payment terms are payment in full within 15 days of statement receipt.
If you are unable to pay in full by this date, you must contact the school.
No interest is charged in the event of non-payment. However, continual non-payment may mean that further goods, services or activities will not be provided
