Paiwand is pleased to be able to partner with Whitefield Secondary School in hosting this Saturday School.
Our feeder schools, referring twenty students each, are Stag Lane Infants, Kenmore Park and Glebe Primary Schools. These partnerships mean that school fees are paid by schools (at a discounted rate), rather than by parents.
