Book Fair 2014 - Update

St Brendan's Book Fair is over again for another year. A BIG Thank You to everyone who came along and supported our major library "fundraiser". It was one of our most successful Book Fairs with the value of sales this year earning us 36 free new books for our library collection. A BIG Thank you also to the families who purchased a "Red Dot" book for donation to the library - keep a look out for them in the library later this term, they'll all have special Book Fair 2014 Donation book plates inside!

For everyone waiting on book orders from the Scholastic Book Fair warehouse, unfortunately these didn't arrive today as hoped. Fingers crossed that they will all be on their way home with you after school tomorrow.
