School Payment 2023/24
The Dept of Education has announced that all school books, copy books and work books are to be provided free of charge by schools to all school children, from the start of this school year. This is a welcome development for parents. However, there are still significant and necessary costs which the school must incur in order for us to provide the best possible educational experience for your child.
We are mindful, as always, of keeping the school payment to a minimum. However, we are constrained by the increased costs of many materials and resources which we must provide. This year’s School Payment will be €75 per pupil. The breakdown of this School Payment is provided below. As always, we appreciate and depend on your support, so that we can provide the best possible education for your child.
