2022 book lists

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, 2022, you must complete your order by Friday 21 January 2022. After this date, every effort will be made by Office National to deliver your order before the start of Term 1, 2022 but this cannot be guaranteed.

Orders can be placed from Wednesday 8 December 2021 to Friday 21 January 2022, using the code provided below, and paid via Visa, Mastercard, PayPal or ZipPay.

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

The postage cost is $9.95 (multiple orders in one shipment are at the same price). Backorders not received prior to the start of the term will be delivered to the College.

Alternatively, orders can also be completed in person at the Royal Hobart Showground, Grandstand Hall from Tuesday 4 January to Wednesday 9 February 2022.

Opening hours are Monday to Friday from 10.00am to 4.00pm, Thursday until 9.00pm and Saturday from 10.00am to 2.00pm.
