Kaipara College Uniform

There were changes made to our uniform at the beginning of 2017.  In 2018 all students must wear the new uniform.  All students will be required to wear school jackets. Other jackets will not be allowed in school.  All these changes have been brought about following consultation with our community.  

We thank you for your support.

Year 13 students may also wear formal navy blue suits otherwise known as ‘number ones’.

Managing School Unform:

Kaipara College is a uniform school.

Parents are required to ensure that their children wear correct school uniform.  The school will not grant permission for students to wear non-uniform items on an extended basis, unless approval has been given by the Board of Trustees. The Board will only grant this permission in medical circumstances where there is appropriate medical documentation provided to the Board. In rare circumstances, students may not be able to wear a uniform item. Parents should write a note to the school explaining the circumstances and the school will issue a permit which is only available from the Deans office during Form time. The school reserves the right to require students not in correct uniform to wear loan items of uniform while at school.
