St Mary’s College has partnered with Office National Hobart to make ordering back-to-school stationery and books easy for parents and students.

We continue 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 book list, 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.


To ensure you receive your book and stationery requirements prior to Term 1, 2021, you must complete your order by Friday 22 January 2021. After this date, every effort will be made by Office National to deliver your order before the start of Term 1, 2021 but this cannot be guaranteed.

Orders can be placed from Monday 7 December 2020 to Friday 22 January 2021, using the code provided below, and paid via Visa, Mastercard, PayPal or ZipPay.

To order online:

Please note: Orders can take up 15 working days for delivery. Office National are unable to deliver to PO Boxes or Post Offices.

Alternatively, orders can also be completed in person at the Royal Hobart Showground.
