KINDERGARTEN UNIFORMS

We encourage parents to purchase new or second-hand uniforms for your child to wear while attending kindergarten.  The uniform consists of windcheaters, hoodies, t-shirts and hats.   The uniform is not compulsory but does save wear and tear on your child’s clothes.  Uniform orders are placed with the supplier twice a year, after the AGM & Parent Information Night and in term 1.  Second hand uniforms are also available for a gold coin donation – availability of sizes and colours for second hand uniforms are limited based on donated items from kindergarten families.

If you would like place an order please download a copy of our order form and return to kindergarten
