Pre-Loved School Uniform Donations Appeal

We are requesting kind donations of pre-loved school uniforms. As we all know, children grow quickly, and sometimes perfectly good uniforms are outgrown before they're worn out.

Donating your child's pre-loved uniform is a fantastic way to give back to the school community and promote sustainability. These gently used uniforms can be a lifesaver for families who may be struggling financially or new to the school.

We are accepting donations of all clean and good-condition uniform items, including:

  • Blazers
  • Shirts
  • Skirts/Trousers
  • PE kits
  • Ties

Donations can be dropped off at the school office during regular school hours, 8am-3.30pm

We appreciate your support in helping us provide a cost-effective and environmentally friendly uniform option for all our students.
