School Book fair

Giffnock Primary School Book Fair
Tuesday 10 March to Friday 20 March 2020

Dear Parent/Carer

Our Annual Book Fair will take place here in the school on the above dates. The Book Fair is always lots of fun for the children, parents and teachers. It also provides another opportunity to encourage the children to use and enjoy books, both fiction and non-fiction.

The school gets commission on any books purchased. This commission is spent on books, enabling us to add to our existing resources. From previous Book Fairs we have been able to supplement our resources with a wide selection of reference material, fiction books for class libraries and sets of fiction novels for use within our reading programme. Remember, however, that no pressure will be put upon either you or your children to buy. Whether or not they are buying the children should enjoy the experience.

Tuesday 10 March to Monday 16 March

Book Preview Classes will be timetabled to visit the Fair. Here they can view books and decide on any they might want to buy. No money is needed at this point. Their choice will be sent home on an order form to be approved or amended and signed by parents. Staff will be on hand to help and guide children.

Tuesday 17 March

Book Fair Orders All order forms must be returned by today with payment. No orders will be accepted after this date. This will allow staff to collate orders ready for distribution as soon as possible. For the most part, books will be distributed immediately. However, each year some titles prove to be very popular and these have to be re-ordered. This normally takes a couple of weeks.

Order Forms with correct amount of money/cheque (made payable to “Giffnock Primary School Fund”) should be returned in a sealed envelope clearly marked with the child’s name and class as soon as possible. Please also write Book Fair on the envelope

Wednesday 18 March and Thursday 19 March

The Book Fair will be open in the library on parent/teacher evenings, but you will only be able to choose from what is left on display and you must pay on the night.

Remember – last date for orders is Tuesday 17 March. Please return orders in a sealed envelope with your child’s name and class and Book Fair written on the envelope.
