    Not sure? I have bought some stationery. Pretty sure the school will provide exercise books. I could be wrong, but I've worked in Mt. Druitt for 10 years, and we provide everything, so I guess I'm not sure how other schools do it

    Oh well that would explain it - I just assumed we had to supply it all.

    Our youngest starts prep on the 5th, I am excited for her, she is so ready but it will be the 1st time in 12 years I have had all 3 girls at school. I know I am going to miss the company! But 2 days to myself (I work 3 days a week) is going to be lovely.

    We have all the uniform, shoes and bag. She loves her new black shoes!!

    The school supplies all the books etc, they are given them on the first Fri and we have the weekend to cover & name them.

    We start on the 30th here- Vic.

    Re book lists, in Vic it's up to individual school as to what they will supply. My base school where I work absolutely everything is included in school fees as far as stationary is concerned, and we will top the kids up throughout the year whenever needed.

    My boys' school I believe they are given stationary at the start of the year, but they have to take very special care not to lose it, otherwise we have to supply.

    We were given booklists for stationary in the last week of kindy last year. It's mostly just pencils, glue, scissors, etc.

    Bigredv, I think that's a good idea to help them settle in, as it's such a big transition and I have also noticed at my dd's School that ordinarily the preppies finish earlier than the rest of the School so they can leave without the big school rush of an afternoon etc as well.

    Our school supplies everything thank you Lord. As I have already spent just over $1000 on getting the others back to school.
    D's is sad that he didn't go up with his friends. I hope he makes friends fast.
