Book Rental 2021/22

The Board of Management has agreed the cost of the book rental fees for the school year 2021/22 and we can confirm that they will remain the same as last year. As guidelines are in place during the Covid-19 pandemic, the school will cannot accept cash payments but are able to facilitate online payments via Databiz Solutions instead.

You must be registered with a valid email address to use the online payment facility and, once this is done, it should be very easy to complete any payments to be made to the school. The rental scheme covers all costs associated with school books (including copybooks) as follows:

  • One Child: €143.26
  • Two Children in Family: €276.28 (€143.26 + €133.02)
  • Three Children in Family: €399.07 (€143.26 + €133.02 + €122.79)

Parents who wish to purchase their own books, separate to the scheme, should inform the office but will still have to pay costs associated with reading and numeracy resources, art, craft and photocopying, which are €51.46. This charge is an averaged charge over the 8 years pupils attend the school.

The school office can be contacted by email ( or and all payments can be made in instalments online if required.

Book lists will be on the school website from June 2021 onwards.
