INFORMATION FOR NEW STUDENTS STARTING AT ROWVILLE SECONDARY COLLEGE IN 2019

This page includes information for all new students starting with us in 2019.  It outlines information specific to Year 7 only and then information for all students starting year 7 through to year 12.

BOOKLIST

Text books are sourced from two different suppliers.

1. Jacaranda provide online digital text book packages which junior students (Yr 7-9) use on their iPads. The bundle costs much less than buying the titles individually (around 1/4).

Click here to order the online textbook package from Jacaranda (all Year 7-9 students).

2. Campion can provide all other materials, including the Language Perfect subscription, print books, digital books and stationery. You can purchase these items elsewhere, with the exception of Language Perfect.

Click here to order text books and stationery from Campion including Language Perfect subscriptions. The booklist is not finalised until around Oct-Nov so access is unavailable until then.

School code is BWJB

Delivery to home or school.

Some print books are available second hand from the college at half the new price. You can phone 9755 4555 and ask for the West Library to check on availability, and pay at the office by cash or card. You can bring second hand books for sale at any time through the year, provided those titles are still on the booklist for 2019.

Students must purchase all listed materials. If they come to class without them they cannot complete the work.
