Second-hand Textbook Trading

Ballarat High School is conscious of the need to provide an efficient process for families to be able to buy and sell their second-hand textbooks and other student resources. Ballarat High School provides parents with the ability to trade these second-hand items via the Sustainable School Shop website. www.sustainableschoolshop.com.au

Results from other schools have been excellent - families have enjoyed a very comprehensive and convenient method of buying and selling second-hand items.

The new service is very accessible; it preferences our school first and then provides access to buy and sell items with families attending other schools, so you’ll have access to a far larger pool of second-hand textbooks, calculators, stationery, musical equipment, etc all year.

For the best results:

  • Register on the Sustainable School Shop website
  • List your items for sale
  • List wanted ads for those items you are looking to buy
  • 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 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 via Sustainable School Shop’s telephone (0438 743 444) and email help lines
  • 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 texts are not required.

Families are offered three levels of access: 

  • Search only - registering/logging-in on the Sustainable School Shop, searching all the for sale ads and gaining the seller's contact details is free.
  • Single items cost $1.50 to be advertised
  • Subscription - an annual subscription costs $21.95 and is the most anyone will pay. These are taken by families who have many items to advertise.
