HIGHLANDS INTERMEDIATE SCHOOL STATIONERY LIST 2018

 

The following is a basic list of items your child will require for 2018. Your child’s teacher may require one or two additional items not shown here, however every effort has been made to keep costs to a minimum. The list is provided now so that stationery may be purchased in advance of school starting.

Students are expected to bring along these requirements on the first day of school.

Please label books with names only, not subject, as these will be identified by individual teachers.
