Stationery and Optional Items

The Department of Education has mandated that schools can no longer sell stationery packs, laptops or other educational items directly to families in 2022. From next year families will need to source and provide these items themselves.

All students  will need to supply their own stationery and may require other optional items listed. These can be purchased through Office National Ararat.  Parents may also choose to source these items themselves.

Booklist Ordered before Friday 5th November will be available to collect from

Office National Ararat (147 High Street)                                          Friday 21st January to Tuesday 25th January 2022

Booklist Orders can be collected from Ararat College from:       Thursday 27th January 2022


All students require access to a laptop and students will still have the option to borrow a device from the library, purchase a new one or bring their own. 

Laptops can be purchased from ‘Learning With Technologies' (LWT) through an online portal where parents may purchase their own device if they wish. Laptops offered here meet all the specifications required for school use. Please read these details carefully  before making a decision. If any families need assistance or require further information regarding these options, please do not hesitate to contact our I.T. Manager Kevin Bowles on 5352 4177.

If you intend buying a laptop please complete order by Tuesday 30th  November 2021
