Children are required to wear the school uniform
Blue polo shirts, sweat shirts, track tops, skirts and polar fleece sweats and shorts are available at The Warehouse in New Plymouth. The school office also has a limited supply of polo shirts for sale at present.
Blue Canterbury track pants may be worn in the winter months.
Second hand uniform items are available from the school office or may be advertised in the school newsletter from time to time.
As our school is fully carpeted we like children to remove their shoes when entering their classrooms, particularly in the winter. It is advisable, therefore to supply a pair of slippers, moccasins or wooly socks for indoor wear during Terms 2 & 3 in particular. It would be appreciated if young children wear shoes which they can put on and take off by themselves.
Occasionally children come to school wearing dangling earrings, multitudes of bangles etc. While personal pride is to be commended, we are concerned with the safety of children and the security of items. Dangling earrings, for example pose a threat when children are playing.
The wearing of jewellery is restricted to watches and plain studs or sleepers in the ears.
In case of exceptions eg. cultural identity, a letter outlining reasons must be sent to school.
Nail polish, make-up and dyed hair are inappropriate for children at Ngaere School.
Children will be permitted to wear mufti at least once each term. Generally this is a fundraising for charity event. We expect children to be cleanly and tidily dressed and to wear clothing appropriate to their age and to a primary school setting.
