All children are expected to wear school uniform clearly named. This consists of the following:
Grey, black or navy blue trousers
Grey or tartan skirts (Blackwatch Tartan)
Gold/Amber polo shirt
Green sweatshirt, pullover or cardigan
Green fleeces bearing the school logo (available from school office)
As with Ballakermeen, Park Road, and Ballaquayle School we expect all children to wear black shoes, not trainers. Jewellery is not allowed.
Tartan skirts, polo shirts and school sweatshirts which bear the school logo can be purchased from:
Esquires Corporate Design Wear
1a Lord Street
Please make sure that your child has a coat with them on cold or wet days.
During the summer term girls may wear green gingham summer dresses. Boys may choose to wear grey, black or navy blue shorts.
Named clothing will always find its owner. However, one green jumper looks much like another. Unidentified clothes are eventually disposed of.
Children need to be equipped to work either inside or outside at all times of the year.
Each child should have:
* training shoes for outdoor sport and pumps for indoor sports
* plain black shorts or gym skirts
* plain coloured t-shirts corresponding to their house colours:
York - Yellow
Laureston - Red
Murrays - Green
Palatine - Blue
Kit should all be kept in a drawstring bag. Please do not send large sports bags to school
We encourage children to wear warm clothing for outdoor games lessons at the National Sports Centre. Any protective tracksuit, or jogging bottoms and sweatshirt is acceptable.
For swimming, boys should wear proper swimming trunks and girls should wear a swimming costume. Children with long hair should tie it back and wear a swimming hat. Goggles are discouraged for children who are aiming for the lower awards, as placing the face in the water forms part of the course.
