Reimbursement option for Chinese Made Easy for Kids

Written by Shelley Medhurst. Posted in Latest Notices/Forms

Due to indefinite shipping delays from China, Chinese Made Easy for Kids cannot be supplied from Office Max Winc. We apologise for any inconvenience.

Staff have discussed the impact to families and have decided to remove it from the required textbooks for 2020 for Year 7 and Year 8 students.

In light of this, we would like to offer to buy back Chinese Made Easy for Kids with a valid proof of purchase.

Please take the book and proof of purchase to Student Services, along with the following reimbursement form. Copies of this form are also available directly from Student Services.  


Advice to parents: Novel coronavirus

Written by Shelley Medhurst. Posted in Timeline

We hold the safety of students and staff with the utmost importance and following advice from Catholic Education Tasmania, we would like to provide you with further information about Novel coronavirus.

For detailed information about the Novel coronavirus provided by the Australian Government Department of Health, please read here.

While we do not wish to disrupt families or cause unnecessary alarm, the College will adopt a similar approach to many other schools who may have students who have visited the affected areas in China, particularly the Hubei Province. Please note the following:

  • Students or staff must be excluded from school if informed by Public Health authorities that they are a close contact of a confirmed case of the novel coronavirus (2019-nCoV), irrespective of whether they have developed symptoms.
  • Students and staff may be excluded from school if they have recent travel history to mainland China and develop symptoms (until their primary care provider and Public Health units determine otherwise).
  • Students and staff should not be excluded from school if they have travelled to mainland China but have no symptoms.

Should you have any concerns about this matter, please do not hesitate to contact James Lambert, Risk and Compliance Manager via email or phone 03 61082560.

We pray for those who have been affected by this virus.

Book lists

St Mary’s College has again partnered with OfficeMax to make ordering back-to-school stationery and books online easy for parents and students.

Click here to find the 2020 book lists.

We are continuing to strive to be a leader in sustainability and to educate our students about the importance of taking care of Our Common Home. All students are encouraged to reuse stationary items as much as possible rather than purchasing new items at the start of each year. Items such as pens, pencils, notebooks, and folders do not need to be a specific brand and can be reused from a previous year, a sibling or from things you may already have at home. When ordering from the booklist, please consider removing any items which are not essential to purchase. Thank you for your support in helping the St Mary’s community become more sustainable.

Order deadlines and delivery information

To ensure you receive your book and stationery requirements prior to Term 1, 2020, you must complete your order by 31 December 2019. After this date, every effort will be made by OfficeMax to deliver your order before the start of Term 1, 2020 but this cannot be guaranteed. 

Please note that free delivery will only apply to orders made before 8 December 2019. Orders placed on or after 9 December 2019 will incur a delivery fee of $12.95.

Full instructions on the ordering process, order deadlines and delivery requirements are outlined in the book list forms, which you can read by clicking on the links above.
