After community consultation and the Board of Trustees approval, we have some exciting news; we are about to roll out our new school uniform in Term 3, 2021. This new initiative ties in with our local school curriculum based around identity and culture. By having a school uniform we are instilling a sense of belonging to our tamariki. This will give all our tamariki pride when they are wearing their uniform at school, on class trips and around the community. Below we have the costs for each item of uniform and the payment options that will be available. The school uniform items will only be able to be purchased through the school office. Please contact the office if you have any questions or would like to discuss payment plans. Payments for uniforms can be made now at the school office.

Other Uniform notices
A blue bucket hat will be provided to each child in the school at the start of the school year. This hat is to remain at school and will need to be worn during outside activities/interval and lunchtimes. There is no cost to the whanau for this unless their child loses their hat. A $30 replacement fee may be requested.
Necklaces, bracelets and rings are not encouraged. Injuries may result during everyday play.
Pierced ears: Studs only please, no pendant styles or hoops which could catch and tear your child’s ear lobe.
Sports Teams – Students selected for sports teams may be given a uniform to wear for the day (or the season). It is expected that these uniforms are worn with pride, treated with respect and returned freshly washed to the office.
Lost Property – It is recommended that all items of clothing and property be named. All school uniforms will be labeled with last names. Lost property can be inspected at any time. Periodically unclaimed property is donated to a clothing bank.
