*If not already in the scheme

Due to Covid 19 we are not in a position to confirm if swimming or school tours will take place in the coming school year 2021/22, we will update parents/guardians in due course. As such these fees have not been added to the school costs and will only be requested if these proceed. 

PAYMENT METHODS: 

  • Online through your family account link in Aladdin Connect, which will be sent by text and email. (please note this link lasts for 30days from the time it is sent and will be re-sent throughout the school year). 
  • If paying by cheque please make all cheques payable to Portlaoise Educate Together N.S.
  • Card payments can be made through the school office over the phone.
  • Due to Covid 19 we would ask that school costs be paid by card or online where possible.

If you have difficulty paying the monies due, please contact the school office immediately to arrange an instalment plan. Any costs paid in instalments (as agreed with the school), will go towards the school costs in order, as listed as per booklist.
