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
