Uniform - Seniors (Yr9+)

A uniform reminder for our senior students from year 9 and above.

We've noticed a number of unusual uniform items presently worn by our younger seniors. Please note: Once graduated to the senior school a formal uniform is adopted. Sweat pants, track pants, sports shoes etc are not acceptable unless requested for specific activities/events. These items have never been part of the senior uniform. The holiday period is a good time for families to review uniform items worn. If you are having problems getting the right size, you can contact Schooltex directly on: 0800 507 807 for assistance.
