Scholastic Book Club

Dear Families,

Throughout the year we administer Book Club for Scholastic Australia. Approximately every month students will be given catalogues offering books for sale.  Please feel no obligation to buy.

Ordering is easy - simply go online and place your order. Payment is to be made ONLY via Scholastic’s Linked Online Ordering and Payment system (i.e. no cash/cheque payments to school).  LOOP allows parents to order and pay via the Scholastic website or app. Please see information below.  There is no need to return order forms to school.  Books are sent directly to the school and distributed to students. 

Each order earns the school valuable reward points which are used to purchase Library and classroom resources. 

For more information about Scholastic and Book Club, visit www.scholastic.com.au
