Uncollected/unnamed lost property items such as drink bottles and food containers will be available for free. Donation bins will also be available for any of your items of used school uniform
Payment is by direct deposit to the PTF bank account, using “second hand” as the description/reference.
Any items you decide not to keep can be shared with friends or dropped back into the donation drawer. Please choose carefully and only take what you need as access for volunteers to process donations is limited.
Your cooperation and care will help us hold COVID Safe sales like this in the future.
The PTF has also paid for a subscription to The Sustainable School Shop so our community can use that trading platform to buy and sell second hand school items such as instruments, text books and sporting gear throughout the year.
IGS thanks the PTF Second Hand Volunteers.
