Dear Parent/Guardians,

               As you may be aware money has been allocated to Gorey Community School for the purpose of
               a Book Grant Scheme.  This scheme is designed to assist students to purchase their books where
               there is a genuine need for assistance.  To qualify for this scheme the applicant must be in
               receipt of a family Medical Card.

               If you do not qualify under this criteria, but still feel that you need assistance please contact the
               Principal in writing, detailing your particular circumstances and need for support.  This should be
               submitted on or before Monday 18  May 2015 marked for the attention of Mr.Finn.

               We have made a concerted effort to retain no change to school books from last term.  It is
               therefore hoped that by receiving this year’s book list earlier than usual you will have the
               opportunity to source as many second hand books as possible.

               For the remaining books here is the procedure for application to the “Book Grant Scheme”.

                   1.  Return your “Book Grant Scheme” form to reception before Monday 18  May 2015.
                       Applications after this date will not be eligible for consideration as there are limited
                       funds available.
                   2.  If you are successful in your application you will be issued with a voucher from this
                       school, you may then bring this voucher to South East Stationery and place your order.
                       South East Stationery is the only shop that is authorised to accept your voucher.  They
                       will fill your order to the value we have assigned to it.
                   3.  Vouchers may only be used for school books.  There is no cash return on vouchers and
                       any remaining balance on the voucher will be returned to the school to be used for
                       other students.  It is also non-transferable between students.
                   4.  Transition year students do not receive a grant as their books are supplied in school.

               Your application form will be treated with the strictest confidence.


               Micheal Finn.
