2017 Online Booklist Ordering Information

This year Cairnlea Park Primary School will be offering the online ordering system for payment of the 2017 student book packs and essential educational items, with our stationery supplier Officemax.

Unfortunately, due to the Department of Education’s change in school’s funding, the school cannot bear the cost of student book packs and essential educational items that was offered in 2016, to parents who held a Healthcare or Pension card.

Therefore, ALL PARENTS will need to do online ordering for their child/ren’s 2017 book pack and essential educational items. We have managed however to keep the cost down to $150 for book pack and essential educational items which includes class materials, software and an incursion program.

Ordering can ONLY be made through the Officemax website. The online ordering system is much easier for parents with your child/ren’s book pack delivered by Australia Post to your home or nominated address. If you are not home, notification will be left by Australia Post to pick up your parcel from the post office. Also there will be no processing fee charged.

More detailed information of dates and procedure will be sent home to parents as well as being be posted on tiqbiz and in the newsletter. If you require any more information please contact myself or the administration staff.
