The school operates a Book Rental /Arts & Crafts Scheme with the assistance of the Department of Education and Skills (DES). A grant received from the DES together with the funds contributed by parents run the Book Rental Scheme each year. All school books (and workbooks) are provided by the school to
families participating in the scheme. The cost of the scheme varies from year to year depending on how many new books are
required. This year the cost is €60 and for those families eligible for assistance it is €40.
To date no family has opted out of the scheme as it provides excellent value. Book Rental /Arts & Crafts
money is collected in June each year. Families who qualify for assistance pay half of the cost as this is subsidised by
the DES. (This Application Form
is circulated to all families in April each year). Parents of Junior Infants do not receive Book
Rental forms / letters until September of the year in which they start school.
