Second-hand Textbook Trading
We are delighted to inform you of the College’s new initiative to provide parents with the ability to trade second-hand textbooks via the online resource, Sustainable School Shop.
The College is conscious of improving recycling levels and for the need of an improved mechanism that can service well all families at St Patrick’s.
Results from other schools have been excellent; families enjoyed a more comprehensive and convenient method of trading second-hand textbooks. Families are assisted to list For Sale & Wanted advertisements online and this new system matches buyers with sellers.
We welcome the Sustainable School Shop’s offer of free access for 12 months, and we would encourage parents to take full advantage of this opportunity.
For families who have unsold textbooks from previous years, now is the time to list them for sale. The books you list will be the first to sell during the normal end of year trading period.
You need to nominate the school when you register on the Sustainable School Shop website to receive your free Annual Family Membership.
For the best results:
- List now any unwanted textbooks for sale
- When the new booklists are received, list ‘Wanted’ and ‘For Sale’ ads, parents tell each other their requirements.
- The school’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 where and when to trade.
- Most trading will occur with other parents from the school.
- Parents are well supported with telephone (1300 683 337) and email help lines.
- Over a little time you will see which parents have the most books you need.
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 textbooks no longer in use at St Patrick’s.
If you don’t have a computer, internet access or an email address, please call the Sustainable School Shop for assistance.
All enquiries should be directed to the Sustainable School Shop on: 1300 683 337 or help is also available through ‘Contact Us’ on their website.
