SECOND HAND school uniforms

Question

Hello everyone? Is there a second hand shop to buy school uniforms?
Or a FB group or website? If not, do you think it would be a good idea to start one?
Thanks in advance!!

Geez - if you've chosen a school that still has uniforms in Belgium, there's no way you should be letting your kids go in anything second hand - school uniforms are a sort of status used to keep the school out of reach of the general gutter-scum.

Having said that, most schools seem to organise a 2nd hand clothes market for fund raising. See if your chosen establishment has one of those coming up.

Thanks! Don't all private schools in Belgium wear uniforms?

No, uniform is really unusual here.

I can only think of 2 or 3 that do in Brussels and they are really quite small schools.

Very few private school s with uniforms eg isb and Bsb.

Most schools with uniforms are Catholic. Size is irrelevant. Near me a school of 1200 with uniform and another with 120.
