PTA Charity


Our PTA also gets deeply involved in some charity projects with our students and community. The PTA has organised events such as:

  • A second-hand uniform sale: an opportunity for our community to purchase pre-owned items, at a nominal cost, and all funds go to support a charity.
  • A bake sale to support a charity.
  • Other fundraising events throughout the year.
BCB Second hand store


Selling second-hand uniforms gives creative ways to parents to pass on items they can no longer use. The sales raise valuable funds and lessen the environmental impact of uniform production and disposal.

The PTA has a Second-hand Uniforms Coordinator who manages a team that helps all families get school uniforms in good condition at a bargain prices. The coordinator promotes sales events during the year and collects and organises the pieces. The PTA accepts donations year-round in the Second-hand box at BCB's front desk.
