UNIFORM INFORMATION

Uniform Price List / Girls’ Shoe Guide / Boys Footwear Code

 

UNIFORM CODE: Please read the uniform code at the beginning of Girls’ or Boys’ Uniform sections below.

Please note carefully that with the exception of shoes, all items of uniform should be purchased from the school uniform shop only. Do not be misled into purchasing trousers which are not school uniform style, colour or fabric. Garments must not be homemade or made by any firm other than the Pakuranga College uniform suppliers. Should incorrect items of uniform be worn, Deans will remove these and return them at the end of the week. If incorrect uniform items are not removable and no note is received, parents will be contacted. Students will be expected to be in correct uniform on the following day.

GIRLS’ UNIFORM CODE

  • Students in years 9 to 12 are expected to be neatly dressed in correct uniform when at school and when coming to and from school. Students wearing uniform on any other occasion are expected to wear it properly and behave in a manner that brings credit to the school.
  • All undergarments worn by students must not be seen – beneath or through the school uniform. For example, students may not wear tee-shirts which can be seen underneath the collar, or through the material of a school shirt.

This dispensation will only be given in very exceptional circumstances. The note must be countersigned before school by the Dean or the Senior Manager in charge of the House. The correct uniform is to be worn on the next day, or parents should arrange to speak with a Deputy Principal.

As school is a formal, work-day occasion, mufti should at all times be of a high standard while avoiding unacceptable fashion fads.

 

The discreet use of make-up, nail varnish and jewellery is permitted.

 

All: Either shoes or sandals must be worn and should be practical for school.

 

Please Note: All Year 13 students are required by Health and Safety Codes of Practice to wear shoes with backs on them in hazardous work areas including laboratories and technology workshops.

  • Patched, ripped, shabby or worn-out jeans.
  • T-shirts and sweatshirts with objectionable or inappropriate pictures or slogans.
