GENERAL

We want students to have pride in themselves. This includes having a high level of personal presentation, (clean and tidy appearance), and we prefer students’ natural appearance. So no make-up, and only clear nail polish may be worn on fingers and toes.

The only jewellery to be worn is a watch, one necklace, one ring and a pair of earrings. These must be simple studs or standard 10 mm gold or silver sleepers. No more than one earring per ear is allowed. Any additional jewellery maybe removed and given to the Dean for safe keeping. All jewellery brought/worn to school is the responsibility of the student.

If for some reason the correct uniform cannot be worn, then the student needs to go to the Year Dean who will arrange to borrow the item(s) required for that day. They then return the borrowed items at the end of the day (3.05pm). Failure to return borrowed uniform items will result in lunchtime litter duty or School Service.

There are NO UNIFORM PASSES unless the student has a medical certificate. These must be applied for through the principal, email principal@katikaticollege.school.nz
