Second hand book sale

Dear Parents / Guardians,


As the College has a comprehensive resource list for all year levels, once again this year we are offering a process for assisting families to sell textbooks and therefore offset the cost of books for the following year. We have staggered the receiving and selling of textbooks in order to keep our students using their textbooks for as long as possible. Please refer to the schedule as tabled below.


The purchase of second-hand books needs to be completed by Monday16th December, as online resource list orders must be completed by this date.  Stationery packs can only be ordered on resource lists. They are not available at the second-hand book sales.


At this stage, we cannot be sure of how many families will utilise this opportunity but I would encourage everyone to tidy up books and have them ready to deposit for sale.

These forms must be signed by the College staff receiving the book/s for sale.
