GCC Student Development Fund

Dear Parents,

We would like to thank you for your continued support of the Student Development Fund which allows us to maintain many of the supports we currently provide to our students. These include our book loan scheme, student Insurance scheme (24 hour cover), payment for buses, pre- examination costs for third and sixth year students, photocopying, building repairs and upgrading of facilities. Indeed, our school pitch development, which will cost in the region of €550k, would not have been possible without the consistent contributions of families to the school over a long number of years.

A reminder that in consultation with our Parents Council and Board of Management the student activity fee for all students is €250 per year.

Please note that the school, in consultation with our Parents Council and Board of Management, has introduced an alleviation of school fees for families of one or more children in the school:

Child 1: €250   Child 2: €200   Child 3: €150   Child 4: €100   Child 5: €50

Please note payments made to the school must be cashless. We encourage parents to use our online payment system ‘Way2Pay’ which maintains an electronic record of all payments and allows you to pay in installments if necessary. A link will be sent to your phone from Way2Pay which will enable you to make the payment. Alternatively, we can accept personal cheques, postal orders or credit union drafts. These must be made payable to the Cork ETB. Fees can be paid anytime up to Friday, 25 June 2021.

The Way2Pay parent information booklet is available on our website by clicking on the Way2Pay icon (top right hand corner of the home page). If you have difficulty using this system, please contact Way2Pay on 01-5424167 or email support@way2pay.ie

We do appreciate that these fees can be a considerable burden on some families.  If you have any difficulties in paying this money please contact the Principal, Mr McCarthy, in confidence, and a mutually suitable arrangement will be put in place.

It is important to note that the book loan scheme is only available to students who have paid the fees or who have made contact with the Principal regarding same.
