Uniform News...

Reminder to all parents and students regarding uniform and returning to school: The summer holidays are a perfect time to have your daughter’s blazer and skirt drycleaned ready for the new school year. Please also check the length of your daughters skirts – this should be between 30 – 33cm off the floor with school shoes on and your daughter looking straight ahead. If it is shorter than this, please contact Donna Adams on 027 262 2333 to arrange to have this lengthened before school starts. Donna is also able to repair blazers – please talk to her about this if your daughter’s blazer needs any repairs.

It is now compulsory for all Year 7 students to wear a tunic (these are available from the Uniform Shop). We are aware that there are issues with some sizes and alternative arrangements have been made with some families until the remainder of the stock has arrived.

If you are yet to contact our Uniform Manager about uniform please do so immediately on uniformco@craighead.school.nz

We do have high expectations with regards to our uniform and how this is worn. We will be doing a uniform check during the first few weeks of school to ensure that all students are adhering to our Uniform Policy and expectations contained in this. Please use this link below to ensure you are familiar with this prior to the start of the school year…

Please note: Uniform Guidelines and expectations around jewellery, hair ties, no makeup or nail polish etc can be viewed at this link: https://craighead.school.nz/uniform
