Tuairisc Scoile agus Leabharliostaí: Reports , booklists etc . 

You should have all received your child’s school report on Tuesday 19th June.School requisites for next year are also included with the reports . All classes are included in our book rental scheme . The scheme has served us well and hopefully will continue into the future. The school will purchase all the books necessary and parents will pay a book rental fee. Next year’s fee for book rental will be €50 per child.

Voluntary Contribution

The voluntary contribution goes to offset some of the expenses involved in the following; Arts and crafts, extra photocopying /progress folders/ copies /plastic pockets etc.

It is €35 per child. In the case of families with three or more children the maximum contribution is €70. Please pay in September in an envelope marked “Voluntary Contribution” with your family name clearly marked on the envelope.

Other important notes

Please label all of your child’s belongings especially tops and jumpers . This may be time consuming but it will help your child to mind their things and it will also save you having to replace things.
