Books and materials for next year can be purchased directly from the school. This cost covers books, copy books, art materials and photocopying. The school must also pay an annual subscription to Educate Together which is 15€ per child. 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.
The cost of each class is as follows:
Junior infants 100.00€ (less 80€ deposit)
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€
If there are more than two children in each family, the third and subsequent children do not have to pay the €70 contribution. They pay only for the books. (ie. 5th class 35.00€)
Due to the increasing amount of pupils now in the school and the large volume of payments coming into the office throughout the months of May and June, schoolbooks will be on sale at 8.45-9.15am 1.10-1.30pm and 2.10pm-2.30pm on the following dates:
Wednesday 11th June 2014
Thursday 12th June 2014
PAYMENTS WILL ONLY BE TAKEN ON THESE DATES AND NOT BEFORE.
Please note that any parent in receipt of social welfare payments may be entitled to the ‘back to school allowance’ payment. 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).
