We have FANTASTIC news.  A new community group, called “Friends of Rockcliffe Park Book Fair”, have stepped in to help coordinate and manage the sorting of the books for our 60th anniversary virtual sale.  Please note that this is a community group, not part of the Book Fair Committee or school council, and not sanctioned by or affiliated with Rockcliffe Park Public School or the OCDSB.  As such, it is not covered under the school council insurance (important for us to make that disclaimer).

If you wish to help sort the books for the virtual sale, and the class book shops, please contact  You can also join their Facebook group

The group can only have a maximum of 10 volunteers per shift.  Volunteers must wear masks the entire shift and be fully vaccinated.  Volunteers MUST sign up in advance.

The sorting volunteer shifts are as follows:
