As we enter Phase Four of the Transition to Secondary school, please see below the relevant documents that may be downloaded for your information.

1st Year Booklist 2021-2022

School Books Grant Scheme 2021-2022

The Dept. of Education & Skills allocates a grant to schools each year to enable us to give assistance towards the purchase of textbooks for families in financial need.

The level of assistance available depends on the number of students eligible for support and the amount of the grant which the school receives. As the funds available are extremely limited, we are asking families to return books in good condition (which are no longer required) at the end of the year. Please return books to the school office in a bag clearly marked with the student’s name and class.

In order to enable the school to process the Book Grant in the fairest way possible, we request parents/guardians who fulfil the criteria above to complete the Application Form herebefore 9th July 2021.
