Books and materials for next year can be purchased directly from the school. This cost covers books, copy books, art materials and photocopying. There is a book rental scheme in operation in the school which has brought down the cost of books significantly for the higher classes and the charge for this scheme is also included in the bill. (detailed list is in the office) The cost of each class is as follows:
Junior infants 100.00€
Senior Infants 100.00€
1st class 110.00€
2nd class 105.00€
3rd class 105.00€
4th class 105.00€
5th class 105.00€
6th class 105.00€
The third and subsequent children do not have to pay the €70 contribution. They pay only for the books. (ie. Child 1(jnr) 100€, Child 2 (1st) 110€, Child 3 (4th) 35.00€)
This year, books can be paid for using our new online payment system. You will receive a text message containing your payment access link, just click on the link and follow the steps. Books paid for online will be given to your child on Thursday 25th June.
For those paying by cash/cheque, school books will be on sale in the hall on Wednesday 3rd June and Thursday 4th June at the following times 8.45-9.15am, 1-1.30pm and 2-2.30pm.

This allowance covers the cost of purchasing books, materials and clothing for school. To apply for this allowance, please contact the Community Welfare Officer at Lucan Health Centre, 1A Sarsfield Park, Lucan Village (016281395).
