A school book rental scheme is in operation in the school.
The following conditions apply t the scheme:
The scheme is voluntary. Book lists can be supplied to parents in the normal way.
A security deposit of €25.00 is payable on behalf of each student who joins the scheme. This deposit will be held against the safe return of all books rented to pupils under the scheme. If books are lost or damaged, some or all of this deposit will be retained to cover such loss or damage. Full compensation for lost books will be required before readmission to the scheme. In the normal courses this deposit will be returned when a pupil leaves the scheme having safely retuned all the rented books.
The €25 deposit carries forward to next year if all books are returned in good order at the end of current year. Rental charges are as follows:
1 Student: €110
2 Students: €200
3 Students: €270
Each additional student: €50
This annual fee also includes rental of lockers and locks, school diaries and student insurance as well as textbooks.
Purchase of school stationary and disposable materials will remain the responsibility of parents.
To qualify for admission to the scheme the deposit and rental charge must be paid on or before enrolment day. This deadline is absolute – no late applications will be considered.
The books supplied under the scheme will remain at all times the property of the school. They will be subject to inspection at any time by a member of the teaching staff.
Membership of the scheme is at the discretion of the school Principal. Any pupil found to be abusing, defacing or disposing of rented books will be dismissed from the scheme and will be required to supply their own text books for the remainder of their time in the school.
Books supplied under the scheme may be new or second hand at the discretion of the Principal.
Admission to the scheme in the second and subsequent years is conditional on the safe return of all books supplied in the previous year.
