Back to school needs cov­ered Va­ri­ety the key

Central and North Burnett Times - - BACK TO SCHOOL -

MONTO News and Travel stock a va­ri­ety of school sup­plies be­cause stu­dents al­ways want some­thing a lit­tle dif­fer­ent.

Monto newsagent John MacEl­roy said the most popular items pro­moted self ex­pres­sion.

“They (stu­dents) are al­ways look­ing for some­thing new, some­thing that looks a bit dif­fer­ent,” Mr MacEl­roy said.

“We al­ways stock a lot of va­ri­ety.”

After 22 years of sell­ing school sup­plies, Mr MacEl­roy knows the next few weeks will be the newsagent’s busiest pe­riod of the year with hun­dreds of school books walk­ing out the door.

“There is not a lot of dif­fer­ence from pre­vi­ous years.

“The only dif­fer­ence is now we are sell­ing mem­ory sticks and ear­phones,” he said.

“Things have changed, as the way ed­u­ca­tion has pro­gressed.”

While more stu­dents are us­ing elec­tronic de­vices, Mr MacEl­roy will be look­ing to ex­pand what the newsagency stocks next year.

Any­one need­ing school sup­plies for Monto State High School, Monto State School or St Therese’s School should phone the friendly team at Monto News and Travel on 4166 1534.
