NEW SCHOOL UNIFORMS SURVEY: Kia Ora e te whānau, I am looking at changing our school uniforms with additional pieces. I would appreciate your input to gather thoughts around what our new uniform could look like and how adding pieces such as a P.E. uniform for our senior students could impact whānau. The reason behind the change is our off shore suppliers have increased their prices. I have sourced a local manufacturer to hold and supply stock for our uniforms. The process behind the change of uniforms is as follows: Gather student voice Gather Whānau voice Gather Staff voice Share findings with whānau, staff, students Present responses to the School Board Whānau, staff, students are notified of the outcome and possible changes timeline Could you all please take a moment to check the new designs, vote and answer a couple of questions.
