Book Rental Scheme - Update

This year the book rental scheme will not operate as previously. This decision arises from the changing of textbooks in many subjects due to the revised Junior Cycle specifications.

The books currently supplied to first years 2017-2018 will continue as per agreement up to their Junior Cert in 2019-2020.

This years incoming first years (2018-2019) can avail of the schools book grant if parents require assistance with the costs of purchasing textbooks. This application form is available to download (see below) or a hard copy is available at reception. All applications and information are treated in the strictest confidence by the Principal.

Please note that students in 2nd to 6th year are also eligible to apply for the book grant application form.

The level of assistance available depends on the number of students eligible for support, the course being followed by the student and the level of grant which the school receives. The Department of Education and Skills defines a student in need as one from a family where there is:

  • Genuine hardship because of unemployment/ short term working
  • Prolonged illness of a parent
  • Large family size with inadequate means
  • Single parent families
  • Families dependent on social welfare

The closing date for receipt of book grant application forms is Friday the 22nd of June 2018.
