“This is such a fast and affordable solution. Instead of trying to get the school or the Dept of Education to solve the problem, parents can make sure that their child is not weighed down by huge books on their way to and from school. It is such a simple solution. I wish I had heard about it years ago.”

“We often get asked about schoolbags and their effect on children and adolescents’ spines. We know that local schools are making the effort to reduce the weight of students’ schoolbags. We couldn’t resist sharing with you this novel (pardon the pun!) and local idea which would also lighten the load.”

“From a school point of view, we think BookSplits is a fantastic idea. Parents constantly worry about the weight their children are carrying and this is now the perfect solution. I absolutely recommend BookSplits.”

“Heavy schoolbooks, exam papers, P.E. gear, hard-back notebooks, revision notes, packed lunches…. It’s no joke for your average teen to have to carry such a load on a daily basis around huge school buildings. With many publishers producing all – in – one volumes of three year’s work for Junior Cycle (or two years at Senior Cycle) it seems that much of the heavy load is unnecessary, since most of the book in any subject is not used at any given time. It makes complete sense to split books into parts and carry only what is necessary to and from class. We have been highly impressed with the quality of workmanship involved in BookSplits and have found the professional, friendly service offered by the team at BookSplits to be superb. We in DCW are delighted to recommend BookSplits and encourage parents where possible to positively consider the cost-benefit analysis of using the BookSplits service in the context of their children’s health and wellbeing.”
