Sustainable School Shop

Second-hand Textbook/Uniform Trading

The College is conscious of the need to provide an efficient process for families to be able to recycle their textbooks and other student resources.

Kennedy utilises the services provided by Sustainable School Shop for second-hand textbook and equipment trading. It is a highly effective and helpful service.

The service provides access to second-hand textbooks, calculators, stationery, musical equipment, etc. all year round. Parents can even trade with other parents from different schools and sell items no longer in use at our College or other previously attended schools.

For the best results:

  • Register on the website
  • List your items for sale
  • List Wanted Ads for those items you are looking to buy
  • The College's booklists are loaded into the system to make listing ads easy
  • The system matches the ads of buyers with sellers and notifies the buyer (Wanted Ad) via email
  • Buyers contact sellers and arrange when and where to trade
  • Most trading will occur with other parents from the school, however items can be traded with parents from other nearby schools too
  • Parents are well supported via Sustainable School Shop's telephone (0438 743 444) and email helplines
  • The system is simple and easy to use - If you don't have a computer, internet access or an email address, please call the Sustainable School Shop for assistance
  • You can pre-arrange the transaction and then trade after the textbooks are no longer required.

All enquiries should be directed to the Sustainable School Shop on: 1300 683 337. Help is also available through 'Contact Us' on their website at

We hope you will make the most of the opportunity to annually recycle your student's school items.
