Second-Hand Uniform Shop

Buying
The Second-Hand Uniform Shop is open at Westlake Girls High School every Friday lunchtime during term (12.25 – 1.15pm) in Room B8. Just come to the reception desk in the Gernhoefer Admin Centre and they will guide you. 

Selling
If you have uniform to sell, download and complete a WGHS Uniform Hand Uniform Form. Hand it in with your items to reception in the Gernhoefer Admin Centre.  You can hand in the items any time during school hours. Please note that anything you hand in for sale must be items of current uniform, in excellent condition with no stains or damage. Any items considered unsuitable can’t be sold and the Parents Forum will contact you to arrange for them to be collected.  Socks, tights and shoes cannot be sold. 

WGHS Parents Forum retains 30% of the price of any items sold and you will receive payment for the remainder direct to your bank account (bank details to be provided on the hand-in form) when an item is sold. The reference is “WGHS Second Hand”. Sale prices are approximately 50% of the retail price. The 30% retained by the Forum is placed in the Parents Forum Welfare Fund which supports students who need financial help. Alternatively, you are welcome to donate your items if you choose to, in which case the Parents Forum Welfare Fund will retain the full amount.

Giving Day - 28 October 2020

We are very excited to announce the first-ever Westlake Girls High School Giving Day. The building of our new Event Centre is coming along nicely, however we are seeking the community's help to get us over the line with our funding shortfall. We are aiming to raise $20,000 by midnight on Wednesday 28 October for our Event Centre - which will become the hub of our school community. You don't need to wait until the 28th - we are happily accepting donations now!
