General Uniform Information

Hair must be kept neat and tidy at all times.  Shoulder length hair or longer is to be tied back with plain, navy blue hair clasps and/or ribbons. Hair is to be a natural colour only. Brown and black clips.

No jewellery to be worn except a watch or small, plain studs in silver, gold or navy blue (only one each ear).  No decorative studs and no ring keepers.  No smart watches.  No nail polish.  No make-up.

We are frequently finding that we are unable to get the same uniform items so have to change.  Each time there is a uniform change, we have a generous transition period.

The uniform shop at the school has stocks of all uniform requirements, except shoes and jackets, but including green socks.  Good quality second-hand uniforms are also available.

Contact Mrs Marise Lang to make an appointment.  Email mlang@stjohnsgirls.school.nz or send a note with your daughter of your requirements if it is only an item or two.

We can issue uniform items with parental written consent and invoice you for it.
