The suggested voluntary subscription is €250 per family, however we welcome any contribution, however small.

Voluntary subscriptions can be paid online with Easy Payments Plus.

Tax back - The Parents’ Association can claim thousands of euro every year thanks to tax relief given by the Revenue to approved bodies. This is a straightforward and simple process, which allows your subscription to go even further.

Tax back - Whether you’re PAYE or SELF EMPLOYED and your donation is €250 please fill out a CHY3 Enduring Cert which lasts for 5 years (download a CHY3 Enduring Cert Form above on our webpage). This ensures your subscription goes even further as the rebate is calculated at 31%. This means that for every €250 the Parents’ Association receive per family the Revenue will refund the school €112.31 making your voluntary subscription worth €362.31.


Please send completed CHY3 forms to the school office. All correspondence should be marked for the attention of the Parents’ Association.

(The Parents' Association are not responsible for cancelling any payments or standing orders when the student has left the school - it is the duty of the parent / guardian)
