The school has been operating a book rental scheme over the past number of years. All textbooks are now purchased by the school and each child pays a nominal rent for the use of same. The full cost for the purchase of the books was borne by the school and generously supported by the Parents’ Association. This has helped to reduce the cost for parents.
The school also purchases all the workbooks. The benefit of this central purchasing is two-fold:
- By buying in bulk the school is able to secure a discount from the suppliers, which is used to purchase supplementary readers for all the classes.
- Parents no longer have to queue up or shop around for books, thereby saving time.
The books will be ordered prior to the summer and will be distributed to the children on their return to school. The total cost to parents/guardians is as follows:
Junior Infants €115.00 (click here to view breakdown of this amount)
Senior Infants €101.00 (click here to view breakdown of this amount)
First Class €103.00 (click here to view breakdown of this amount)
Second Class €110.00 (click here to view breakdown of this amount)
The money should be paid to the child’s teacher by Friday, 9th June – cash is accepted or cheques should be payable to Bishop Shanahan NS. Alternatively, it is possible to pay online. If you wish to avail of this facility please follow the instructions that have been sent to you by email.
