Free Primary Schoolbooks Scheme

Primary Schools from Sept 2023

The Department of Education announced in March that there would be a Free Primary Schoolbooks Scheme in Primary Schools from September 2023 [external link with more information]. This means that your child’s schoolbooks will be FREE for this academic year. The school will source these books and they will be in your child’s classroom when the arrive in school on the 31st August.

To avoid any confusion, we will not publish book-lists this year. To be clear, you are not required to buy books for your child for this academic year.

Administration Bills & Pencil Case Lists

Previously Stationery Bills

Stationery Bills are now called Administration Bills. These bills can be paid in the normal way. You may notice that the cost of these bills has decreased, when compared with other years. This is due to the new Free Primary Schoolbooks Scheme in Primary Schools [external link with more information].

Administration Bills & Pencil Case Lists for ALL classes are now available. Junior and Senior Infants do not need a pencil case, just the items listed.

Some recent posts from our School Blog

Learn Together to Live Together.

Monkstown Educate Together National School strives to create a happy, safe, inclusive and nurturing environment where the uniqueness of each child is celebrated. We aim to provide a space where children are educated and where all members of the school community can grow, develop and achieve their full potential. We aspire to excellence in an atmosphere of respect, openness and joy.



METNS is a child-centred learning community, where the uniqueness of each child is celebrated. Each child’s abilities, needs, pace of learning and individuality are recognised and respected. Each child is encouraged and supported to develop their signature strengths and to achieve their full potential.


We uphold, respect and accept equality of beliefs, whether religious or non-religious, and we celebrate cultural diversity of children, parents/guardians, staff and members of the wider community. We are inclusive, and through promoting an appreciation of diversity, we strive to ensure that no child or family is an outsider and that children ‘learn together to live together’.


At METNS, we work towards maximising the potential for building a genuine partnership between the professional, objective role of the teacher and the necessarily personal involvement of the parent/ guardian in their child’s education.  Our school community emphasises individual and collective responsibility for the children’s education, for the financial and practical support of the school, for discipline, for communication and for the on-going development of the school.


We aim to provide a balanced environment, which does not favour one gender over the other or promote gender stereotypes.  We are also committed to fostering respect, understanding and friendship between girls and boys.


Our Guide to Ethos

In Monkstown Educate Together National School, our characteristic spirit or ethos permeates every interaction, influences our decision making, and guides our plans and policies.  We hope that this guide will help you to deepen your understanding of this system, and to join us in shaping our pupils’ learning experience now and in the future.
