School Uniform

We offer a smart, reasonably priced uniform.  The College expects students to maintain a high standard of dress and personal presentation at all times, including a clean, tidy uniform. It is a condition of attendance at this College (agreed to upon enrolment) that the correct uniform be worn.  Non-regulation items will be held in safe-keeping until the end of term.  Individual variations require the approval of the Principal. Any changes to our uniform code must be passed through the Board of Trustees and will be notified in newsletters.

During the summer months, students are encouraged to wear the College uniform sunhat (no other sunhats, sports hats or beanies are acceptable). Girls are reminded that skirts should be an appropriate length and no shorter than midway between ankle and knee.  Information regarding skirt length and requirement, care of skirts and other information is given when purchasing skirts.

Hair must be clean, neat and tidy and be styled in a reasonably conventional way including natural hair colourings.  It is expected that hair be kept out of students’ eyes and long hair be tied back at all times. Boys are expected to be clean-shaven. Girls are permitted to wear natural looking make up only.

The only jewellery students may wear is one plain silver or gold stud in each ear.  Nose or other facial studs are not permitted including clear studs and space savers. Students may be permitted to wear a pendant / taonga or tattoo if it has significant spiritual, cultural or sentimental value. The taonga or tattoo must not be visible.

The standard Hauraki Plains College uniform jacket is the only jacket allowed and is for outdoor use only.  Passes will not be issued for any other jackets. For additional warmth in winter it is recommended that all students wear extra items of clothing under their uniform. These extra garments, however, should be white or black depending on colour of the shirt and must not be visible.  An optional Hauraki Plains College raincoat is available for use during rainy weather only.
