You are invited to join the Student Resource Scheme (SRS). The scheme operates under the policy and guidelines of the Department of Education Student Resources Scheme Procedure. The scheme is supported and approved annually by the school’s Parents and Citizens Association (P&C), It is managed by the school and operates in accordance with section 51 of the Education (General Provisions) Act 2006.
The scheme is voluntary and you are under no obligation to join. However, please be aware that books, materials and consumables required under this scheme are not funded by school grants. Therefore if you do not wish to join the scheme you are still responsible for providing your child with the items that would otherwise have been provided by the scheme as detailed in the list below, to enable your child to engage with the curriculum. Please also refer to the attached itemised requirement list.
The provision of this scheme ensures that well resourced learning by our students remains our key focus. The scheme is not a fund raiser for the school. Its purpose is to provide you, the parent, with a cost effective, value for money alternative to purchasing textbooks, resources, consumables and materials from elsewhere, through reduced prices gained from the school’s bulk purchasing processes. It also covers Software and Web based licences fees for IXL and Reading Eggs.
More information about the cost and forms necessary to join the Resource Scheme will be available in 2022.
