New Text Book Supplier for 2024
23rd August 2023
Letter emailed to TGS parents (Years 7-11)
The School was recently informed that our major book supplier, Progress Book World, would cease to operate, at short notice. Progress Book World had supplied books for our students for many years.
We utilised this opportunity to seek different textbook supply solutions and I am pleased to announce that the School has now partnered with Box of Books as our key textbook supplier.
Ordering through Box of Books will provide a fully online ordering experience that will cater for all our families, wherever they may be. This supplier has a proven track record of providing service to schools throughout Australia and TGS is very pleased to be partnering with them to be able to offer an outstanding capability to view, order and have your child’s books delivered. In addition, they offer online versions of prescribed textbooks, which are user-enabled to be interactive with teachers, thus allowing a dynamic and progressive learning tool.
As a school we will now be in the position to integrate the services of Box of Books into our educational environment and homework spaces. Their ability to provide both hard copy and digital platforms will be advantageous to your children. We encourage you to view their website to read through their materials related to their product (https://www.boxofbooks.com.au/) .
There will be further information to follow regarding this online platform and how to order – however, it is very important to note that the ordering deadline for guaranteed delivery of hard copy text books will be earlier - Friday, 8 December 2023.
Deputy Principal/Head of School
