New Books for the Lalor Secondary College Resource Lists

Each year, towards the end of Semester Two, all students are provided with detailed Resource Lists.

These lists outline all of the required resources (eBooks, Textbooks & Stationery) that are required for individual subjects during each academic year. It is of vital importance that all students have the correct equipment to be able to be reach their maximum learning outcomes.

Many specialist subjects have very specific equipment that can only be purchased through this resource list, so it is essential that the students buy through our suppliers or the school directly.

 As in previous years, we are working closely with our school supplier, Campion, to ensure that our Resource Lists are detailed and that the appropriate resources can be provided to our students.

2018 Lalor Secondary College Resource Lists – Year 7-12

eBooks in 2018

eBooks are available as alternative to traditional textbooks and as a digital resource in certain subjects and areas of study.

Novels and workbooks are not in eBook form.

Some VCE subjects have also opted not to offer eBooks as an additional choice. This involves predetermined textbooks, but not for novels, workbooks and some textbooks, and is dependent on subject requirements.

You also have the choice of purchasing either a hardcopy textbook or an eBook, where an eBook code is provided.

If you and your child choose to only purchase the eBook, then it must be purchased via the Campion website www.campion.com.au

A credit card payment is required to complete the transaction. All purchase instructions are clearly outlined on the Resource lists. The eBooks access code will be sent to parents via the email address provided upon online payment. There is no postage cost associated to eBook distribution.

This access code allows the eBook to be downloaded and must be treated in the same manner as a traditional textbook; that is, the eBook is to be brought to every class and every student must have it.

If an eBook only is purchased, then the student is responsible for ensuring that they have their device and they can access the text within the classroom; therefore, their device must be charged and able to be used.

Most eBooks are downloaded and many have additional web-based applications (such as interactive), so any device that can connect to the Internet will able to be used as a platform for the eBook.

Please note:

1) Under no circumstances are refunds available on the purchase of eBooks.

2) The same copyright laws as traditional textbooks also are in place to protect eBooks.

The abuse of the publisher’s digital rights is illegal and any student who reproduces or shares codes and/or downloads will be breaking the law, and therefore the school will apply the associated penalties or contact the associated authorities.

If you have any issues or queries relating to purchasing then please contact Campion directly or if you have general textbooks, eBooks or equipment enquiries, please feel free to contact the Lalor College office.
