St. Vincent's Book Lists & Book Rental Information

Organising new books for your son can be quite stressful and expensive. In order to ease this stress we operate a book rental scheme here in St. Vincent's. Participation in this scheme is voluntary, however it is highly recommended as it includes savings of between 40% and 50% on buying the books.

Locker Guidelines 

This year ALL students will have access to an assigned locker with padlock (€15 rental fee). 


As the school year begins students will gain access to their locker with their individual code. (Only students that have paid for book rental will have access to their locker & books). All students will have access to their books by the end of their first week. 


Below is an instructional video on how to use our new padlock system. 


Guidelines for Lockers:

  • Students must ensure their own lock is on their locker at all times.

  • All lockers must be locked after using them. 

  • Access to lockers is as follows:

Morning time 8:40

Lunch time 13:40

End of the day. 


  • Students are not permitted to go to their lockers between classes. 

  • Lockers must be kept neat and tidy. 

  • Anyone messing with lockers/damaging lockers will be fined and locked out of their locker. 

  • If students lose their lock there is a replacement fee of €15.


On receiving their books students will be given time to label all their books. Students must not swap books throughout the year or leave them in classrooms, books must be kept secured in their lockers when not being used.


At Senior Cycle, if any books go missing or are damaged due to improper use they may lose their deposit moving forward. If Junior students lose or damage their books parents will have to pay for a replacement.
