MāNUKA PRIMARY SCHOOL uniform
Respect is a value that we place great emphasis on. Wearing the school uniform correctly is a sign of respect for our school.
We are eager to uphold the standard of our uniform and the expectations of how the uniform is to be worn.
We have Mānuka School sunhats for sale at NZ Uniforms - we would like to see all students wearing the Mānuka hat.
It is our preference that hair is not dyed at primary age. Any girls wearing large bows or headbands with cat ears etc. will be asked to remove them.
Our regular Mufti days are opportunities for students to express their individuality and have coloured hair and accessories such as oversized ribbons, headbands and funky hair.
School uniform is compulsory for all children Y0 to Y6. Please ensure all items of clothing are named before your child starts school.
Lost property can be found at the rear of the school hall – teachers are not accountable for your child’s lost uniform and will not be conducting searches for the lost items. Long sleeved t-shirts are not permitted under the school uniform.
Leggings should not be worn; if your child is cold she may wear navy or black tights only.
Children joining a school sports team will be required to purchase a PE uniform from our school office. Please visit our school website to view purchasing information.
We have a Uniform policy that reads;
Students are expected and encouraged to take pride in their general appearance.
The uniform is available from NZ uniforms. Some used uniform items are available in the office or advertised in the school newsletter.
The only jewellery permitted is watches and earstuds.
Continued or blatant disregard of the dress code is dealt with through our behaviour management plan.
See our school website for our uniform information.
All students are expected to wear plain black shoes - these can be plain black sandals in the summer months.
