Book Rental Scheme

The Government is funding book rental for 1st, 2nd and 3rd year students for the academic year 2024/2025. This will include books, stationary, class materials and school journal. Where a book/journal/equipment is lost or damaged, this must be replaced by parents.

The school operates a book rental scheme for senior cycle students. This means that in 2024/25 the book rental fee for 5th year students is €200.00, and this covers all the textbook requirements for the 2 years of the Senior cycle (5th and 6th year). This fee does not include copies, exam papers or class materials.

These books will be given to students by their teachers when they return to school in August 2024
