Tuesday 07th March to Monday 13th March 2023 Gurraneasig NS Book Fair is being run by Scholastic Ireland.
Parent contact and coordinator: Claire Cochrane, 086 869 3107 or firstname.lastname@example.org
Get in touch if you have questions at all.
This year, the Book Fair is piggy-backing World Book Day to continue a celebration of stories, reading, listening, writing – all things words!
The school will also be organising some activities during the day that include celebrating poetry, reading and storytelling.
As you know, our school earns credits toward books for the school with every purchase from the book fair. This is how it works:
Our school will receive rewards in free books for running the book fair as follows:
Note to Parents: To ensure you receive your full rewards please note that ordering from the Scholastic Online shop is separate from the book fair and the school does not receive the full rewards.
When will it be open?
Please note: Parents who wish to pay online can use the wish list system described under “How to Pay?” For a list of books, please visit:
