Coláiste Pobail Setanta Booklists 2020 - 2021

Coláiste Pobail Setanta is a Digital School where each student has a Personal Education Device.

Students are required to have purchased their eBooks for each subject in all Year Groups prior to commencing school on August 28th.

Parents have the option to purchase a physical book also if they wish but this is not a school requirement.

Students may only bring their device with the eBooks to school, the physical book (if one has been purchased) is for home use only and will not be accepted as a replacement for the eBook in class.

Students of 5th Year have a choice of eBooks or physical books or both.

Students of 6th Year have a choice of eBooks or physical books or both.

ALL Students in 5th and 6th Year should also have a device for class as this will be used for teaching and learning. This device must be purchased through Wriggle.

Please do not hesitate to contact the College should you need assistance.

The Wriggle store is open until the 30th of June 2020. Failure to purchase before this date will result in a 50 euro late fee payable to Wriggle.
