The Department of Education and Science pays a grant per pupil towards the running costs of the school. This money is to cover rental of premises, heating, ESB, telephone, cleaning costs, insurance, maintenance etc. The school must seek additional contributions from parents or the community.
Therefore, the Board asks each family to pay a voluntary contribution of €60. This would do away with constant fundraising. This contribution is voluntary, but the response is excellent. The school relies heavily on the support of the families and greatly appreciates this contribution. We ask new families to contribute to this collection.
