Textbook Lending System - Lower and Upper Secondary


Who can take part in the Textbook Lending System?

The system is available to students from Classes 5 - 12. No student is obliged to participate in this system.

How does this system work?

A list of the books which are compulsory for each class for the academic year is available in our download section just below on this page.

From this list you can see what books and materials can be borrowed from the school (marked L), and which ones are available only for sale (marked V).

Students who have registered for the textbook lending system (with parental signature) will receive the set of required textbooks in the first week of school. This packet can only be borrowed as a complete set. Students cannot borrow individual books from the packet.

School materials and books marked with the letter "L" can be borrowed under this system. Other books required in the class, such as work books, atlases, formula booklets etc. will be marked "V" and will be available on sale at the school during the first few weeks.

In order to prevent unnecessary exchanges, please discuss with your child which books s/he needs to buy (not borrow!) before the beginning of the academic year.

Please note that books marked with an "L" will no longer be sold (new or used) at all at the GSN.

What happens if a book is damaged or lost?

Each book in the lending system is meant for only one student, and this student is responsible for returning his / her book undamaged and in a good condition. Students may not mark the book in any way (including underlining, comments in margins etc.) If a book is damaged in any way, or if it is lost, the student will be obliged to pay fee to replace the book.

In order to prevent damages, all students are required to cover their textbooks. Students must cover the books within the first two weeks of school. If this is not done, the class teachers will take the book away from the student after the end of the second week. Students will then be obliged to bring a cover to school and cover the book in class, before getting the book back.

The books will be re-collected as a complete set towards the end of the academic year. Should the student not be able to return the book on the day assigned, two further return dates will be proposed.

If the books are not returned by the last date given, they will be considered lost, and will be charged for.

The school reserves the right to check the books when they are returned, and to reject any books considered too damaged to be re-used. Such books will be charged for.
