The Parents Association Book Scheme covers the provision of all books, stationery, homework journals and licence fees for online resources. The aim of our Book Scheme is to make books more affordable for families. By purchasing large quantities of books we are able to pass on significant reductions to parents. All books, apart from copies, will be covered with plastic book jackets.
For the 2020/2021 school year the cost will be €100 per child for all classes.
Our Book Scheme is not compulsory, however if you choose not to join, you cannot re-join in future years. The idea behind this is that every family pays the same amount and makes the same savings as their child moves through the years at Scoil Naomh Barra. Some classes will make bigger savings than others but throughout the years, you will avail of the larger saving (especially in 6th class) and it will all even out. Every class in the school is making a saving by joining. Also, if there are any other books, copies or stationery which need to be purchased throughout the year, this will be funded by our Book Scheme if you choose to join.
If your child is exempt from Irish, we can offer a discount on a case by case basis as Irish requirements vary from class to class. Please contact email@example.com to discuss further.
