Book Rental Scheme

bookrentalSt Brendan’s offers a Book rental system in Junior Cycle.

At the present time the College makes 6 titles available to First Year students by recycling third year texts back into first year.

Now in its’ second year of operation the system significantly reduces the cost of texts for new students.

This year the titles being recycled and rented are

  • Gaeilge -Maoin 1
  • English -Dive in
  • German -Klasse 1
  • Science -Science Matters
  • Religion-A Question of Faith
  • Geography title?

Organised by a member of staff in conjunction with the Parents’ Association and the Student Council, the recycling scheme is an excellent working example of common sense planning offering good value to parents and students alike.  For a total investment of €40 students are equipped with over half their texts for the year ahead

The scheme also requires the goodwill of the parents of the outgoing third year class each year.  We are very grateful to all those third year parents who have subscribed to the Book Recycling Scheme over the past two years. Each returned book  is worth a €5 voucher redeemable against contributions for school activities for the upcoming year.

We will also gladly accept senior cycle books for reuse in fifth year from our departing Leaving certificate class group.

More detail, application forms etc is available from the office
