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.
Booklists can be found below.
Book lists for the 2023/2024 Academic year can be found here.

This year ALL junior students will have access to an assigned locker with padlock. Senior students will have an option of renting a locker also, but there are limited numbers.
As the school year begins students will gain access to their locker with there individual code. (Only students that have paid for book rental will have access to their locker & books). This will be done gradually beginning Monday 28th August. All students will have access to their books by the end of that 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. If any books go missing or are damaged due to improper use they may loose their deposit moving forward.
