Junior School Stationery…

News

Junior School families will save at least $100 per child on the cost of the 2016 booklist, thanks to a new College initiative. By now parents should have received their booklists. For 2016 the College will bulk buy stationery items for each classroom reducing the overall cost to parents.

With stationery taken care of, you will notice there are only a couple of minor items you will now need to order. It also means students do not have to carry in heavy parcels of stationery at the start of the school year. This initiative ensures all students have access to the same stationery items in their classrooms and that resources are ready to use from the first day of school.

Booklist orders are due back by Wednesday 9 December. More details about student learning resources click here.
