Book Fair

Book Fair

This week there has been a lot of excitement around HT with the Book Fair taking place in the library.

There was multiple choices of books for different ages. Everyone was very generous with their purchasing and we made over $5000 which is an amazing result. A big thank you must go out to a generous father who donated almost $250 worth of books for our school library. As a result of all the great sales Mrs. Taylor will be able to purchase a lot of new books for our school library for 2020 and beyond.

Thank you to all the parents and staff who helped out and of course to Mrs. Taylor for all of her fabulous work to make the book fair available to our school community.
