Every purchase from Scholastic Book Club helps the school to buy extra resources. 

Scholastic Book Club orders for Term 2 are now open and orders will close on 20 June.

The easiest way for families to order and pay for Book Club is to use the online LOOP platform. This will ensure that students get their orders, which are delivered to school for free, and that the correct payment is received. Please use the link to register and start your order www.scholastic.com.au/loop

LOOP is also available as an app, for both Apple and Android devices.

Families who order via LOOP will receive a free All About Me journal with their first order, a reusable book bag with their second order and a poster and bookmark for those who place their third order for the year.

Please note there is no cash payment facility for orders.

Thank you to everyone who ordered from Book Club in Term 1. St Stephens Carramar earned $197 in Scholastic Rewards, as 20% of what you spend goes back to the school. Your support, in ordering from Book Club, has allowed the school to buy Literacy Pro reading student licences, as well as additional books and teaching resources.

Thank you so much for your support.  We hope you will continue supporting our students through your Book Club purchases throughout 2019.
