IMPORTANT CHANGES

Kia ora koutou e te Whanau,

TeRangi

My name is Matua Te Rangi Allen.  I have been employed by the school in several roles with one of them being lifting the standard of school uniforms. For quite some time the school has had ongoing problems with school uniforms so we are in the process of ensuring standards are adhered to. On first inspection there is a huge disparity in the types of footwear worn. In part the uniform list does not clearly state that the shoes should be black leather lace up therefore we are addressing this.

We ask that beginning the start of term 4 that all students will wear school type black leather lace up shoes which can be purchased at the Warehouse or Number One shoe shop. The alternative being the summer Roman Sandals.

According to the student handbook only girls are allowed studs or sleepers. No male students should be wearing studs or sleepers – this will take effect beginning next Monday.

Your help would be much appreciated in addressing the above as we look to lift standards in the school. Please contact the school should you need to inquire further.
