Book Week T-shirt 2016


Dear Year 7 and Year 8 Parents/Guardians

Sha Tin College will be hosting its annual Book Week, week commencing 29 February 2016.  As part of our celebrations, and to promote a love of reading within our student body, we would like all Year 7 and 8 students to purchase a custom made white T-shirt, with a STC Book Week logo on the back.   Year 7 students will decorate their T-shirts with a design linked to this year’s theme (Identity) using fabric markers during an English lesson and Year 8 students will create a digital design using computers in an English lesson, and then print their designs onto their T-shirts during a Design & Technology lesson.  All students will then wear their T-shirts to school on World Book Day which takes place on Thursday 3 March 2016.

In order to prepare for this event, we would like all Year 7 and 8 students to order and purchase their T-shirts before Friday 8 January 2016. This will ensure they arrive in time at school so the students can prepare their T-shirts, ready for Book Week. The cost of the T-shirt will be 67 dollars.

To place an order for a T-shirt, please could you:

  • Sign the attached declaration form and ask your child to return it to the Whitehouse by this Friday 8 January, absolute latest. Please specify the necessary size.
  • Ensure that your child’s school Octopus card is charged with enough money so that it can be debited for payment.

If you do not wish to purchase a T-shirt with the Book Week logo on, then your child will be expected to have purchased a plain white T-shirt by the first day back to school after Chinese New Year.

If you have any queries regarding this, please do not hesitate to contact me.

Kind regards

Lindsay Tandy

Head of English Faculty
