Scholastic Book Fair to be held in 1LRC from the 7th - 21st November, 2018

Save money with our Book Fair Gift Vouchers!

Book Fair Gift Vouchers are the simple, secure way to ensure your child gets the books they want when the Book Fair arrives, if you would prefer this method of payment to giving them cash.

Book Fair Gift Vouchers

  • Even better, you’ll get an extra 20% for free when you buy online – that means you’ll get a £6 voucher for only £5, a £12 voucher for only £10, a £30 voucher for only £25 and so on.
  • The school will earn rewards for free books on the full value of the voucher, rather than the discount price.
  • Once a purchase has been made, you will receive the voucher in an email which can be printed and given to your child – much safer to carry than cash!
  • Vouchers can be purchased up until midnight on the day of collection of the Book Fair. PLEASE QUOTE OUR FAIR ID NUMBER: 1026931

Please visit www.bookfairs.scholastic.co.uk/parents for further details or contact Mrs Anne Williams, our school librarian, who will be delighted to assist you.
