The new Primary Language Curriculum was rolled out throughout schools in 2019 as directed by the Department of Education and Skills. The good news is that the children will be using many new and interesting texts from September onwards.
St Joseph’s NS implement the school book rental scheme which essentially means that the school will purchase, order and cover all books for all children in the school and parents will be charged for the list in its entirety.
We have tried to keep the costs as low as possible and the charge will include book rental (old and new), photocopying, arts and crafts and other classroom expenses.
Book money can be paid in the school during the final week of term (24thJune – 27thJune) or during the first week of term (26thAugust – 30thAugust).
This new system will mean that children will be sure to have their books when needed and that parents do not have to individually buy books and materials for September.

Price includes all books, workbooks, photocopying, arts and crafts and other materials.
