Wondering what stationery preps/FYOS take to school. Anyone been given a list of things to buy which they care to share?

Our school buys all the supplies themselves, and distributes to the classrooms. Prep-2 just have shared stuff, so the teacher labels which books they will use, pencils in the middle of the tables, etc. We just pay booklist at the start of the year.

We pay for a book pack which is about $85

Is that typical for most schools? Is so I guess I don't need to buy the personalised pencils then. I was kind of looking forward to buying all the stuff blush.gif

I guess it depends on each different school, all of the schools my kids have been to have had book packs, we're in Vic if that makes a difference. The only time I have brought stationary is for my high school kids original.gif

Our Prep stationary is supplied by the school.

Us too except it is part of the school fees ( including all excursions, swimming etc). $750 per term first child and $125 per subsequent child ( catholic local school).

We are asked to supply 3tennis balls, 3boxes of tissues, tube of sunblock and hand sanitisers. Once again it is a pooled resource for whole class.

Same.

If the school hasn't advised you of what to buy then I would assume they will supply or you will be given a book pack.

Previously we have had to cover the odd size books (scrapbooks, A5 notebooks etc) however DS#2's teacher has already advised that no covering of books is required. Yippee.  Let's hope the other two follow suit.

My fyos child's supplies are included in the school fees ($120 per year). The teachers prefer nothing to come from home, as it creates too much fuss with young kids losing/borrowing/refusing to start writing until they have their hello kitty pencil.

Ours are also included (private school)...Hello Kitty pencils, too! wink.gif

It would be a good idea to buy yourself a roll of good quality clear contact for covering books.

Our kids were allocated books but brought them home (approx a dozen excercise books each) in the first week to be covered in clear contact.

I find the heavier thicker quality clear contact is easier to apply.

Ours were also provided. NSW government school. We did get a list of a few things requested we bring in to be shared, glue stick, box of tissues, some pump hand soap. But other supplies not were not required and they were not allowed to have their own pencil case in FYOS. Too distracting, they fiddle with it etc.

In year 1 they were allowed a small pencil case but they also had shared pencils supplied in the centre of the desks so it wasn't essential to have your own pencils etc.

In QLD public we got a list............. books, pencils, textas, paper, folders, pencil case, art smock, library bag, tissues, ruler, scissors etc. Some things were specific styles or brands.

State school VIC. All is supplied. We have to pay a books and supplies levy. If you have not already been given a list, I would suspect that it's the same for your school. I have never had to cover any books either. Have you been given a list of school fees OP? iS there a clue on there?

#16 muggins_00

Posted 01 January 2013 - 07:58 PM

State school in Vic and our school does book packs. The prep teachers have requested that the packs be brought in intact and unlabelled on the first day and they will store and distribute them as required.

We are also QLD public, and we were also given a list. Almost everything was for sharing.

Have not yet had to cover a book, so not bother buying contact unless told to cover.

#19 msro82

Posted 01 January 2013 - 08:09 PM

We are give a specific list that has to be purchased from a certain supplier. It was $92 ($10 delivery, you could go get it yourself but the hassle wasn't worth $10!)

This is a catholic school in Tasmania. We were also told to cover books. Most other things are for sharing.

#20 Lady Excentrique

Posted 01 January 2013 - 08:23 PM

We have a booklist, but all pencils, sharpeners, erasers, scissors, and colours are for sharing.

DS gets a few things just for him such as library bag, art smock, a few scrap books and folders.

I'm a bit excited too so I plan on covering his scrap books in batman contact (I will live to regret this) despite no book covering being requested.

DD has just finished Kindy (FYOS) we had to supply 2 folders for homework and readers and a paint smock. Everything else was supplied by the School.

DD1 is starting prep this year.  We had a book list and a small contribution to pay toward shared classroom supplies and sunscreen.  We've been advised to cover/label books, library bag etc, but any pencils, crayons, textas on the list aren't to be labelled as they will be shared.

There was no pencil case on the list but I have bought her a small one and some extra pencils, and other supplies she can keep at home to practice her writing if she likes.

NSW Catholic school: we got a smallish list of supplies to buy -about $25/30 worth. Plus contract, last year I used more than 10m, we *have* to use clear.

They share stationery in our FYOS.
