|Book and Stationery Lists 2014|
Year's 7, 8 & 10
The following only applies to Years 7, 8 and 10
Purchasing of student texts for 2014 is now possible, however the form of texts used at Year 7, 8 and 10 will change somewhat from previous years. With CBC St Kilda now a 1:1 device school, utilising the benefits of such a device is central to this transition into the digital age. As such, CBC will be using ‘Readcloud’ to store some of the student texts. This reduces the need to carry many books as well as allowing online collaboration amongst staff and students about the text. If you would like more information regarding Readcloud here is a link to a recent article in The Age Newspaper:
Whilst there is a cost associated with setting up an individual’s cloud, this is somewhat offset by the reduced cost of eBooks. The cloud will also be used to distribute other material within a subject.
Lamont Books- our main book provider. All other texts are to be purchased the website www.lamontbooks.com.au.

Lamont provides Free Postage and Handling if your books are ordered by the 13th of December. Readcloud books will be loaded electronically next year with assistance from the IT Department.
