The blue card
The blue card is used by schoolkids attending 8th, 9th and 10th grade.
The blue card must be personalized with a picture and a name, and the cards are only issued at our offices.
The issued card is valid a year at a time, and all cards are deactivated at the end of the school year. 8th and 9th grade pupils cards are activated again at the beginning of the new school year, and are upgraded to 9th and 10th grades.
