Book Rental Scheme

St. Oliver’s Community College operates a Book Loan Scheme for all students from first to sixth year. The payment for the Book Loan Scheme is made in first year, Transition Year (if relevant) and fifth year. The payment in first year covers all three years of Junior Cycle and the payment in fifth year covers both years of Leaving Cert. No fee is charged in second, third and sixth year.

The fee for the Junior Cycle Book Loan Scheme is €200. Rental Scheme for Senior Cycle €150. This fee is paid via our online payment system, Way 2Pay.

An initial payment of €50 is made by parents/guardians of incoming first years by July previous to starting school. Deadlines for payment for other years will be communicated via letter. You do not have to pay the Book Loan Scheme in one amount. You can use the link that will be texted to you and payment can be made in as many instalments as you wish until the full amount is paid.
