Book Week 6-10 May

April 29, 2024

Book Week is happening next week! And there are so many amazing activities !!

Book Sales

During Book Week, a range of Scholastic books and stationery will be available for sale in the School library before and after school (Monday to Friday, from 8.30am-9am and 3pm-3.30pm).

Stanley Bay School receives a generous 15% of all sales in rewards money to purchase new books for our School library (cash and EFTPOS will be available).

We are looking for some amazing parent helpers who can help us manage Book Week during these times.

If you are available to help please email Miss Kim at

We are looking for amazing parent helpers to help us sell scholastic books during Book Week, before and after school at our school library!

Donated Books from our Year 6 students

During Book Week, you will have the opportunity to pay for a book that you would like to be donated to the school library in your memory. You will then get a special trophy sticker at the front of the book as an acknowledgment! 

We thought this would be a lovely way of leaving a legacy.

Once you purchase a book from Scholastic, please bring it to Miss Kim in Room 1 to get it stickered.
