Oak Bay High marks End of an Era with sale

History carries forward into the new Oak Bay High School, but there’s not enough room to move everything from two schools into one.

While there’s plenty of history carried forward into the new Oak Bay High School, there’s not enough room to move everything from two schools into one.

So, for everything that isn’t going into the new building, and that can’t be used in other district schools, Oak Bay is hosting its “End of an Era” fundraising garage sale, this Saturday from 7:30 a.m. to 1 p.m., says Oak Bay vice-principal Murray Allen.

“The process of going from two buildings to one has been challenging to say the least. The amount of materials that have been recycled or repurposed has been huge,” Allen says. “Whatever we can recycle, we have; this is just another opportunity to do that.”

The public is welcome to come to the West Gym Friday from 5:30 to 7 p.m. to preview the items up for grabs. On Saturday morning, a $25 admission fee allows shoppers to choose any five items and take them away on the spot.

Proceeds from the sale will be split between programs at the school and Oak Bay High’s Cops for Cancer fundraiser, Allen says.

From chairs, tables, desks and bookshelves to books, appliances, electronics and picture frames, a huge variety of items await discovery.

 

Cars will enter off Cadboro Bay Road and exit behind the school.
