UNIFORM REGULATIONS

There is ONE uniform code and any combination of this may be worn at anytime throughout the year. There is no Summer/Winter variation. The expectation is that students wear the correct uniform, to and from, and at school.

Our school uniform impacts on the look and public perception of our school. We want Pāpāmoa College Students and our school to be reflected in a positive light in all areas of the school and our wider community!

All students at all levels are required to wear the correct uniform at all times, including to and from school.

The following information applies to all students. The range of uniform items can only be purchased from the School Uniform Shop, Unit 2, 60 Parton Road, Pāpāmoa or online, and can be worn anytime throughout the year. Footwear needs to be purchased at retail establishments.
