The Green Shed may not be one of the first places that springs to mind when thinking about education resources of Canberra but I am assuming that you are one of the many teachers forking out your own money to get the resources that you need for your classroom and students.
The Green Shed is particularly good for furniture. On my last visit there was shelving and book display units. A small lounge for a book reading corner could be useful or get some pouffes or cushions and recover them (if necessary) to provide some alternative seating.
There are always toys, books, jigsaws and board games available. Yes, they might well need a bit of a clean up and the soft toys will need a wash, but since some things have a finite life in the classroom, for example jigsaws and board games, why pay full price for them.
Think Green Shed first when looking for craft materials. There is fabric, canvases, frames, wood, piping, tiles, and other items that just need upcycling.
You are not going to find exactly what you are looking for if you treat it like going to a regular store but with regular visits (open Mon-Sun 7.30am -5.00pm) and grabbing bargains when you see them, you can save a lot of money and provide those extras you need for your classroom and students.
