Imperial International School Ipoh implements cashless system for added convenience and also teach students value of financial prudence.

Imperial International School Ipoh (Imperial) has always placed student and staff welfare at the very top of its priorities, hence its decision to implement a cashless system for its cafeteria and book store. Taking into account new normal practices of this post-pandemic era, school administrators were all in favour of encouraging more contactless interactions.

“Going cashless is a step in the right direction. There is very much less contact between vendors and students, plus it is also a lot more systematic and orderly,” notes Renita Simmunjalam, Marketing Manager at Imperial. “It’s a convenience that most people have come to expect from an international school.”

Launched in collaboration with Hong Leong Bank, students were handed their cash cards at Imperial’s multipurpose hall and were also invited to open a junior bank account with the financial institution. According to Joey Gan, Operations Manager at Imperial, “One of the chief reasons we wanted to implement this cashless system is to improve students financial literacy. This system will allow them monitor and manage their finances easily. Budgeting skills will be enhanced.”

Imperial offers the internationally-recognised ICGSE and offers K12 education for pre-schoolers to Year 11. To find out more, please go to:
