Kaipara College Uniform
In 2017, some new changes have come into effect. For those students in Year 9 and 12 we will have the new school uniform supplied by SAS. The hours of the uniform store are listed below. Students in Year 10, 11 and 13 in 2017 will wear their current uniform, prior to all students switching to the new uniform in 2018. Any students in these years requiring new uniform in 2017 will be able to buy the new uniform to save on costs in the future.
For Year 13 students in 2017, we will also be offering formal suits from Hallensteins and Farmers for those who wish to wear Number One’s. We will release the details of this uniform to Year 13 students on their return to school as we do not expect our students to wear suits in the hot summer months. 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.

MANAGING SCHOOL UNIFORM
The 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 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.
