Student Satchels

At St Vincent's we take great pride and care of our school books.  Student satchels are required by all children to protect the school's resources.  Lost satchels can be purchased through the Uniform Shop for $10.  ​​

St Vincent's Resource Centre has an extensive collection of books both print and online. Teachers have access to a wide range of resources that support the curriculum in teaching and learning. We are constantly updating our resources in line with the Australian Curriculum.  Students may request resources to be purchased for both educational reasons and/or enjoyment.

Throughout the year there are opportunities for students to celebrate their love of reading.  For example: Book Week, The Premier's Reading Challenge, Book Fair and Book Club, lunch time lunch clubs, reading, borrowing and returning,​

Scholastic Book Club is offered during Terms 1, 2 and 3.  Parents place orders online and cash is not accepted.  Book Fair is held in Term 4. This is a wonderful way to end the school year and to celebrate a love of reading with your child/re​n.

For any enquires or concerns, please email Therese at

Yours in reading,

Therese Brennan
