Second Hand Shop

In July 2016, the option to purchase and sell second hand uniform items became available via the Oakleigh Grammar Uniform Exchange. The inclusion of text books and some confusion over the name prompted the switch to the new name – Oakleigh Grammar Second Hand Shop in October 2016.

Families now have the opportunity to get some payment for their second hand uniform items and text books.
