Please see below for the list of items you will need to purchase for your child for next year.
As per the new Free Primary Schoolbooks Scheme, you are no longer required to to purchase schoolbooks including workbooks and copybooks. These items will be ready in the classroom for your child when he/she returns to school on 30th August.
All school textbooks remain the property of the school so that books can be reused in future years. School books will be provided on loan for the duration of the school year and must be returned to the school at the end of the school year. Parents/Guardians are requested to remind their children to take care of their books and keep them in good condition. (If any of the outgoing 6th class pupils could donate their books and in particular dictionaries and atlases, that would be appreciated. They can be left with their current class teacher.)
The Free Primary Schoolbooks Scheme is not sufficient to cover the cost of the following items: Art and Craft materials, Photocopying, Pupil 24 hour insurance (which also covers accidents during activities outside of school time), the Parent Databiz App.
To cover these costs, you are requested to pay €50 per child. A payment request for the €50 school services charge is on the Databiz App. Please pay this by the 1st September.
