17th August 2017


Hello Parents, Carers and Teachers at Winthrop Primary, the P & C are planning a second hand book sale where students (and parents) can purchase used kids’ books for only $2 per item. This event ran very successfully in 2015. It is an excellent fundraiser with the added benefit of encouraging children to read quality books.

The 2017 Bookworm Jumble Sale will be held 17th August (Week 5 Term 3).

For the Bookworm Jumble Sale to be successful the P & C requires donations of books appropriate for Kindy to Year 6 students. Please start collecting books to donate. It is a great opportunity to clear out some bookshelves and cupboards for a good cause. Perhaps some of your neighbours and friends are happy to donate too. Books do need to be age appropriate and in reasonable condition. Collection of books at school will not occur until early August so please do not bring them in until requested. A notice will be in the newsletter.

Thank you very much in advance from Andrea Edmondson (Bookworm Jumble Coordinator)
