Kaipara College Uniform

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 Deputy Principal in charge of uniform or the Principal. Permission will only be granted in medical circumstances where there is appropriate medical documentation provided. 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.
