As you know, this year the new Primary Language Curriculum will be rolled out throughout the school 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. The bad news is that this costs money!
From September 2019, we will be implementing a whole school book rental scheme. Essentially this 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. Please note that no voluntary contribution will be expected this year.
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).
We hope that 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.
