Some schools LOVE the Marketplace. Use it to keep all the posts about jumpers in one place or to create a buzz on your Classlist site.
The best way to introduce parents to a new feature is to show them how it’s done.
- choose a category (general, lost and found, offer or wanted)
- add a short description, a photo, and set your price
- private message any takers to make further arrangements
- mark your post as complete when you are all done
Ambassadors and reps have started things off by posting up lost property, having a clear out and posting up their kid’s outgrown bikes, or setting up an online ‘PTA shop’ for second hand uniform and school merchandise. Once a week, all marketplace posts are grouped together and emailed out in the digest.
