Book club

The school participates in the Scholastic Children’s Book Club.  Through the school, parents are given the opportunity to purchase popular, suitable books at cheaper prices. Notes and pamphlets are sent home each month advising parents of procedures. When the books arrive they are distributed to students in class. The school receives free books with each order and these are either donated to the library or used in classrooms as part of the home reading scheme.
