Update to 2019-20 Parents of TY’s awaiting refund

Apologies to parents expecting this refund earlier, it wasn’t as straightforward as we had expected. It involves working with the App through which many people paid. The App initially told us they could make the refunds to the parents directly, but they don’t have all parents card details. Nor do they know if every parent was fully paid up to be entitled to the same refund as everyone else. That is what caused the delay. The two issues will be dealt with together when the office reopens on August 16th. I do apologise for the delay. I was too eager to tell parents it would happen for them sooner rather than later and then realised that it wasn’t as simple as rewriting the same cheque to all. The office were very busy up to the 25th June when it closed and it has to wait now till be they return in August. I hope this explains the delay but the cheque will be in the post as soon as it can be arranged. Enjoy the summer and this amazing weather.
Update to Allbooks Online Purchase through App

Archived : 20 Sep 2021, 12:00 AM
The App company, Unique App, have provided the following information for parents wishing to purchase materials and texts from AllBooks via our App: Parents are currently being able to purchase through the app, however, some parents are experiencing some issues with the authentication process. The parents who are experiencing issues we are able to send them a link to access the shop item in a browser so they can make the payment through there. We are working on having the option for parents to send themselves the link, so they don’t need to contact us at all, as they will be able to pay for it by using the link. Therefore parents can purchase any item in the shop. I hope this gives clarification to everyone. Thank you for your patience.
Online Allbooks orders - notice of a change

Apologies, our earlier notice about purchasing materials and texts from Allbooks on the School App (but not on their website) has had to be temporarily withdrawn due to the following reason: As the main banks continue to upgrade their 2FA (Two Factor Authentication) security procedures it has caused some issues within the 3D Secure process for some card holders. So to avoid any issues with our parents trying to purchase the books we have been asked to recommend waiting until the end of next week. We sincerely apologise for this situation which is beyond our control, but in everyone's interests it is best to wait until the end of next week to order online from Allbooks, as advised. I will notify you when that time arrives. HOWEVER, YOU CAN STILL ORDER THROUGH THE ALLBOOKS WEBSITE FOR HOME DELIVERY THE SAME AS ON THE APP. www.allbooks.ie Thank you. MM

As the month of June comes to a close, school reports have reached home, the last of our Leaving Cert exams is nearly over, I have prepared a Review of the past school year for your information. It has been a strange but very successful year, in so many ways. Difficult but also one in which we all dug deep and found inner strength. Please see the Report at this link. Enjoy your summer and as always, thank you for your continued support. MM portlaoisecbs-my.sharepoint.com/:w:/p/mmurphy/EW7layRrxhhLgB_0DMnI8EQBbcxVwFiPYLhakytFEau0qw?e=XDSD6c

All booklists are found on the school website - under the Parent Tab. You can access the website directly by www.portlaoisecbs.com or through the app by scrolling down through the list under the 3 lines. The app developer seems to be working on the booklist section and it hasn't been available for a few days. Hopefully it will be sorted soon. But all information, including the school year calendar, is found on the school website and all app notifications are a direct feed into the homepage of the website.

As the exams move into their last week, and many of the 6th years are now finished wearing their uniforms, we are asking you to consider donating them to the school for others' use next year. School ties, jumpers, trousers and Senior textbooks would all be much appreciated. We wish you all a lovely summer and time to recharge for the next chapter of your lives. Take care, MM
