Books and Stationery School Year 2020/21

Dear Parents/Guardians,

Given the unusual circumstances of this year with Covid 19 to facilitate parents/guardians not having to queue in book shops, to get the benefits of a bulk buy discount, we have opted to purchase everything your child will need for September in bulk.

This will also facilitate the way the school will operate in September to follow Covid good practice to keep both staff and families safe. No other books other than those supplied by the school will be permitted to be used on school premises.

All school textbooks, workbooks, copybooks, pens, pencils, display folders etc will be included. Everything will be ready in an individual pack for your child when they return or start school in the autumn.

The cost per child will be:

Junior Infants and Senior Infants                                    €50 per child

1st and 2nd class                                                              €60 per child

3rd and 4th class                                                               €80 per child

5th and 6th class                                                               €90 per child

This cost is a substantial discount to the total cost of any individual book list and is being subsidised by the school.

All fees will be collected in September on return to school.

The usual payment of €30 per child for Pupil Personal Accidentental 24-Hour Cover, Homework Journal and Photocopying etc. for the year 2020/21 will also be collected in September by the Class Teacher.

Book Rental Returns

We would very much appreciate it if you have any book rental books in your home that you return these to the school on Fri 19th June (this coming Friday) between 10am and 12noon. There will be staff there to take the books from you at this time. Please enter school grounds via the usual entrance (Avaune road).

If you have belongings in the school that you would like to collect, please collect these on Fri 19th June also between 10am and 12noon, otherwise all property left in the school will be disposed of on your behalf.

Please note: Access to the school is not permitted. A drop and go system will be in place. Staff will be on site to assist.

Wishing you all a happy and safe summer.
