Class Sets of Newspapers

for 2017

There's no doubt newspapers have a role to play in the classroom or school library.

If you don’t already have access to today’s newspaper, the Mercury’s Newspapers in Education office can organise a daily copy for you, or your school’s library. These are available at half price through our Schools Program.

This could be either:

* Daily newspaper, delivered on any, or all days of the week, or collected from a nominated newsagent. School holiday copies are normally automatically excluded, unless advised otherwise.

* Daily Class Sets of the newspaper – usually in sets of 10, 15 or 30, at half the retail price. These can be made available on a nominated day or days. The choice is yours.

To inquire about class newspapers or request an order form, contact Damian Bester at the Mercury by phone 6230 0736, fax 6230 0700, or email damian.bester@news.com.au
