  • Items can be exchanged or refunded after the lay-by has been collected.

Exchange/Refund Policy

The items must be returned within a reasonable period. The College reserves the right to assess the condition and age of returned goods prior to providing an exchange, refund or repair. This may result in the exchange, refund or repair being refused.

As long as an item has not been used and is in the same condition as when it was purchased, it can be exchanged. A refund for an item will be given provided that the price paid for the item can be verified (receipt may be necessary). Second hand items will be refunded or exchanged proving the second hand tag is still attached and the item has not been used.

Our goods come with guarantees that cannot be excluded under the Australian Consumer Law. You are entitled to a replacement or refund for a major failure. If the goods fail to be of acceptable quality and the failure does not amount to a major failure the College will decide to either repair or replace the goods.

Second Hand Uniforms

The Uniform Shop accepts second hand uniforms that are in good condition for resale. During the term the items received are processed and the proceeds will appear as a credit on your College Statement of Account for the following term.

If you would like to sell your uniforms please read the following 'Conditions for Acceptance of Second Hand Items for Resale' document and include a completed 'Second Hand Items Request Form' with the uniforms when you leave them at the Uniform Shop:

Conditions for Acceptance of Second Hand Items for Resale

Second Hand Items Request Form

Please Note - No second hand items will be processed between Wednesday 22 November 2017 and Monday 5 February 2018 due to the back-to-school busy period. It is preferred that second hand items are not left at the Uniform Shop during this period.


As the College does not endorse the clearly visible naming on the outside of items for safety reasons, the Uniform Shop will not accept any second-hand items for re-sale if they have writing on the outside of them. All items left for re-sale should have any names removed or made illegible.

The following items are not accepted for second hand sale:

  • Jumpers and vests without the College emblem
  • Blouses and shirts with dark emblems
  • Old style House polo’s
  • Old style HPE shorts and navy HPE polo’s
  • Old material Prep polo’s and Junior School track jackets
  • Sizes 10 to 16 and 82-102 boys’ taupe shorts that are not adjustable
  • Surf hats

Lost Property

It is strongly recommended that all items brought to the College by students (especially bags, blazers, jumpers and hats) be clearly and permanently marked with their first name and surname so that lost items can be identified. For safety reasons the College does not endorse the clearly visible naming on the outside of items. Hats should be named on the inside crown section and not on the top or bottom of the brim.

Bag tags, ribbon, etc. on bags make them easily recognisable so that it is less likely for students to pick up the wrong bag or to put their items in another student’s bag by mistake.

If a student loses an item during the Term they should contact the various College Receptions to see if they have the lost item. At the end of a Term all the lost property is brought to the Uniform Shop. Any clearly named items belonging to Junior School students are returned to them and Middle & Senior School students are emailed if their name is on any item. Any other students who lost uniform items in the prior Term should contact the Uniform Shop to check if their item is there.

Non-WestMAC items are placed outside the Uniform Shop every Monday, Wednesday and Friday during the first three weeks of a Term. Non-WestMAC items that are not collected are then either donated to charity or destroyed.

Embroidery

Students in Years 7 to 12 are eligible to be awarded lines and colours that can be embroidered onto their blazer pockets. Students can also have their student number embroidered onto their hat.

Students are required to take there line/colour award to the Uniform Shop, along with payment, to arrange Blazer embroidery. The embroidery is done on a larger blazer pocket which is hand stitched (not machine sewn) over the top of the existing blazer pocket. The original blazer pocket should not be removed.

Year 12 students are entitled to have ‘Senior 2018’ on their pocket. All Year 7 to 12 students are allowed to have their House colour on their pocket.

Please contact the Uniform Shop for the next cut-off date for embroidery to be sent away.
