Dear Parents/Guardians,

In recognition of the cost of preparing children and young people for the return to primary school each September Minister for Education Norma Foley T.D. has announced funding to provide free school materials from September 2023.

This scheme will eliminate some of the cost to parents of providing these resources.

Funding is being provided directly to primary schools and special schools by the Department to implement the scheme and schools will now have responsibility for providing school resources to all children at the start of the school year.

All school books will remain the property of the school so that books can be reused in future years. School books will be provided on loan to children for the duration of the 2023/24 school year and must be returned to school at the end of the school year.

Parents are requested to remind their children to take care of their books and keep them in good condition during the year. It is not permitted to write on textbooks.

Whilst our school is delighted to receive additional funding, we are cognisant that it will not be sufficient to cover all the costs associated with school life. There are some related classroom resources that are not covered by the scheme. We have made a significant effort to keep pupils costs to a minimum year after year, and thus are asking each parent for €50 per child. Additional details on what items parents will need to supply for the return to school in September 2023 are described overleaf.


Yours sincerely,

Ms. Coen
