In previous years, this programme has run at a slight but increasing loss. This year, the costs for courses have changed slightly to accomodate the costs of online booking, and are below. We have structured the service costs to provide maximum value to families using more classes. 


1st Course place per family will cost €40 in total for a six week term.

2nd Course place per family will cost €30 in total for a six week term.

3rd and subsequent Course per family will cost €25 in total for a six week term


Example: one boy taking art on Tuesday and guitar on Thursday will pay €40+30 = €70

Two boys taking art on Tuesday (two places) and computers and homework on Thursday , will pay €70+50= €120

Please note: The costs for all courses are fully inclusive of materials (Arts & Crafts). All activities must be paid for in full at registration. If you want to pay separately via cheque, you may do so, but you must still book places online. Cheques should be made payable to Scoil Mhuire Marino Parents Council. If payment is not complete by the 1st day of class, waiting list places will be offered. 

 In the event of a class being cancelled due to lack of numbers your money will be returned. This is the only circumstance in which money will be refunded.  In these cases, we will also offer places on any alternate course with available space. Should a child no longer wish to attend an activity, the parent or guardian must inform the extracurricular teacher in writing.


Should you have any queries please contact one of the following or any member of the parents council;
