Get your school on the Trail

Fundraise & Get Your School Reusing This November

Garage Sale Trail is happening next on 9-10 & 16-17 November 2024 and is a great way for schools to fundraise and get students involved in a waste reduction activity.

Last year almost $1 million was raised for schools, community groups and charities nationally, with the average school making over $1,056 in one day.


Participating schools and early learning centres say the event helps them:

  • Fundraise.
  • Engage with the community.
  • Get the the whole school reusing.
  • Sell secondhand school uniforms and old school equipment.
  • Generate media.

Ways to be involved

It’s up to you how you choose to be involved:

  • Host a garage sale at your school selling secondhand equipment and school uniforms or invite the community to donate items you can sell.
  • Run a thrift market at your school inviting the local community to host a stall. Download the how-to host a group sale guide to find out Marrickville West Public School do it.
