INTRODUCTION

The Senior School Swap Shop is where you can buy and sell your preloved School summer, winter and sports uniform. Items must be freshly laundered, or dry cleaned, and in good to excel- lent condition. The Swap Shop is located at 7a Morrison Street, Hawthorn (opposite the Language and Culture Centre).

The Swap Shop is open:

  • Every Wednesday of Term from 8.00 am until 11.30 am
  • The first Saturday of each Term from 9.00 am until 12 noon
  • At other times as advertised in the Torch Newsletter

A committee of parents run the Swap Shop as a service to the School community. Parent volunteers assist on a roster basis (approximately one two hour shift per month) to process the clothing for sale and staff the Swap Shop during opening hours.

MAIN ACTIVITIES

Sales and Purchases: The Swap Shop operates on account only basis (no cash sales). When you make a purchase from the Swap Shop you will need your son's school number. Purchases are then charged to your account. House polo tops, good quality long-sleeved white

school shirts and grey summer shorts are only accepted as donations. All other items can be donated or consigned for sale.
Consigned items sold are credited to your School account. You will receive two-thirds of the sale price. If you are consigning a blazer and wish to keep the pocket, Swap Shop can sell the blazer without the pocket.
Blazer hire: Swap Shop has blazers for hire for special events. The cost is $15. Further details can be found on the Scotch College web site /family/swap/swap.htm) or Torch Newsletter.

Use of Swap Shop Funds: The Swap Shop retains the money from items donated and one-third commission on sales.The money is then distributed to various projects around the school. In previous years, funds raised by the Swap Shop have assisted scholarship, exchange and Indigenous students, World Vision projects supported by the school, projects which have the potential to benefit a wide range of students (and meet the broader educational goals of students) via contributions to purchases made by other SPA groups and other aspects of school life at the discretion of the Swap Shop committee.
