Overdue books

If you feel that the book(s) have already been returned, please let me know by writing a note on the back of the overdue notice.

The book will then be searched for and hopefully located within the library or in the student's classroom, as occasionally books may not scan properly.

If, however, the book is unable to be located, we request that a replacement fee of $10.00 is paid to help cover the costs of replacing the book.  Payments for books can be made at the front office.  When paying for a book please ensure to take the overdue notice with you so they can pass it back to the library to allow the book to be deleted from your child's name and taken off the library management system.

Premiers Reading Challenge

The Premiers Reading Challenge starts on the 3 March 2018.  Students will not be able to access their online reading logs until this date.  Students can start reading books now and record them by printing out the personal reading log which can be found on the NSW Premiers Reading Log.
