Please contact or DM Yvette via her CC Sports Supporters Group on Facebook to make your arrangements directly with her – CC Sports Supporters Group | Facebook.

She will then deliver her collection to Canterbury in time for Saturday’s Buy Sell Swap Meet.

Yvette lives nearby in Waterford and has generously offered to collect uniforms from those parents and past-students who wish to donate, but lack the transport to deliver items to the school. Legend!

Uniform Pricing

Parents selling uniforms themselves can naturally decide their own item prices on the day.

Donated uniforms will not be specifically ‘priced’ so that purchasing parents can pay whatever they can afford or feel is reasonable.

Our goal is NOT making money BUT getting these second-hand uniforms into the hands of parents who need them!

Please Note: ALL profits from donated school uniforms will be split 50/50 between the Canterbury College Sport Supporters Group and Performing Arts Supporters Group. THANK YOU!


Parents selling items themselves will need their own cash float or Square Card Reader.

College donated items can be purchased preferably by cash, but Canterbury will provide a portable EFTPOS machine.

Important COVID QLD Health Schools Directive

ALL parents, carers and students are most welcome to attend and shop at this meet here on campus, whether fully vaccinated or not.

Likewise, you are most welcome on campus to donate or deliver your school uniform items in person, whether fully vaccinated or not.

This is because you are classed as temporary visitors – the same as doing child drop-offs and pick-ups on school days on campus.

However, any parent or carer volunteering their time and labour to staff the trestle tables, must be fully vaccinated, as you are classed as service providers – the same as being a contractor or maintenance worker on campus (paid or unpaid makes no difference).

Call For Buy Sell Swap Meet Volunteers

Having said that, we will gratefully accept any fully vaccinated volunteers who can help with trestle table sales on Saturday morning.

If you are available and happy to help out, please email Lisa Foster with your full name and mobile number, plus proof of your full vaccination to – 

Please Note: Canterbury’s Saturday morning TAS Trimester One sport training and trials will be running at the same time on the various ovals, up at the Canterbury Taipans Tennis Centre, in the nearby Sports Hall, plus over at the CEC on High Road.

NB: The Technology Precinct toilets at the rear of the Trade Training Centre will be open for use – please follow the signs.

A Message From Mrs Yvette Peterson:

“Thanks to COVID wreaking havoc on factory production work and transport supply lines, high sick leave staff shortages and international customs hold-ups, the usual shipments of new Canterbury uniform items have been delayed.

That means there are lots of new students to the school, as well as those moving up from Junior to Secondary, that may not have all their required uniform items for the first day of Term One.

As a parent at the school, I wanted to make a call out to the Canterbury Community for anyone that may have old Canterbury uniforms gathering dust in your cupboards – from past student alumni or from kids who’ve outgrown them – that could help make another student feel comfortable on their first school day.

We will need uniforms, as well as volunteers who can help at this meet, to try and get uniforms into the hands of those kids that really need them.

So if you can help with any of this at all, please get in touch. I am happy to collect items from your home where possible.

And please spread the word about this event!
