The School uniform is compulsory for all students. It is the responsibility of parents/caregivers to ensure that clothing items bought for school wear do in fact meet the uniform regulations.
The sole supplier of the new Kaiapoi High School uniform is Argyle Schoolwear Ltd. New uniform items can ONLY be bought online at https://www.argyleonline.co.nz/shop/south-island/kaiapoi-high-school. There are uniform samples at the school office for sizing purposes.
Blazers are optional and must be ordered through the school office.
All items must be clearly named. Students must wear the correct uniform at school and when moving to or from school. Requests from parents/caregivers for children to temporarily wear non-uniform items, due to unforeseen circumstances, should go to the Assistant Principals or Deputy Principal, who will endeavour to provide a temporary replacement item or may issue an exemption.
Students playing in school teams and groups are required to wear the correct uniform for that team. In some rooms including science laboratories, the foods room and technology rooms, safety and hygiene factors may require long hair to be tied back. Extreme hair styles are not appropriate and hair must be natural colours.
