The wearing of school uniform is compulsory.
This decision was arrived at after consultation with the community.
Advantages of having a school uniform:
Gives us a feeling of pride in ourselves and our school
Team spirit and belonging
Avoids “designer label” problems
Avoids the “What do I wear today” dilemma in the mornings.
Wearing of jewellery, by students, is discouraged. Single ear piercings are acceptable, however wearing of nose studs, tongue studs etc. is not permitted at school. Necklaces etc. may be worn inside clothing.
If children are participating in an interschool event but do not have correct sports’ uniform, they must wear their normal school uniform.
School Uniforms are available for purchase from Personalise It in Waipukurau. Please contact Kiri on 027 376 8641 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
