Book Club

This year we are excited to announce that we are introducing Carnival Book Club to our school!

The Carnival Book Club range is wonderful and diverse, spanning the K-6 age range in one comprehensive catalogue. This will enable families to buy for siblings, friends and extended family. While, most importantly, Book Clubs actively encourage voluntary reading at home, they also offer a fabulous fund raising opportunity for our school with 20% of all proceeds coming back to us to purchase new resources for our library and classrooms.

Order forms will be sent home for each issue as they are released (one per term); orders need to be placed online using the following link www.carnivalclub.com.au/orders

All orders will be delivered to the school and sent home with your children via our classroom mail system.

For any queries on the book club please contact Carnival on 1300 666 068 or our school office on 9795 2477.

Parent Helpers

We value the assistance of parent helpers in our classrooms and with other school activities. It is a requirement of school council, that all volunteers at our school hold a current Working With Children Check (WWC check) and that these details are recorded on our Register of Volunteers. If you would like to assist in the classroom or with other school activities, please provide details of your WWC check to our school office and also ensure you update your details with the Department of Justice and Regulation, to include Mulgrave Primary School as a place you volunteer.

If you would like to apply for a Working With Children Check or need to update your details, please use the link below
