St. Vincent's Book Rental

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. Below you will find all the information you require in order that your son starts off his year with all of his equipment and books

So what do I do next??


Decide whether you want to buy the books yourself or rent them from the school bookshop.

We have put together three new packs for this year. These will include all copies, hardbacks, pens and stationary mentioned on the book list:

1.1st year pack: €55 - all copies and hardbacks, pens, math set, calculator, folders and other stationery. ( Colouring pencils, ruler, pencil sharpener and eraser will be provided free of charge by the school as part of a first year induction pack)

2. Standard Stationary: €50 - This includes everything senior and junior students need minus the calculator.

3. Standard Stationary Plus: €60 - This includes everything PLUS a calculator.
