Uniform

Uniform

All students are expected to maintain a high standard of pride in their appearance and are required to wear correct uniform at all times. The uniform helps children to develop a spirit of belonging to the school and removes competition in dress. We ask for full caregiver support in ensuring that students are clean, neat and correctly attired. We believe that it is only fair to all students that correct school uniform standards are maintained. 

As part of ongoing reflection to provide an inclusive and supportive environment, Christchurch South Karamata was pleased to introduce a new uniform to the students in 2022.  The aim of our new uniform is to provide comfort, choice, and equity for all students.
 
Students and their families are able to select from a number of items which best suit them.
 
From the beginning of 2023 only the new uniform is to be worn.
During school hours the wearing of jewellery, make-up or coloured nail polish is not allowed. Studs or sleepers are the only ear decoration permitted. 
For health and safety reasons, hair longer than shoulder length must be tied back with a white, maroon or navy hair tie. Hair bands must be white, maroon or navy. Hair should present a neat, natural appearance.
Undergarments, such as a singlet or polypropylene, must be white and short sleeved. 
 
Please see the important information on this page regarding suitable footwear. This will be closely monitored in 2023.

School shoes

The Athlete’s Foot in Riccarton have generously supported our school for a number of years. Mention our school when you purchase shoes and they include your purchase as part of their school support programme. We have benefited from valuable sports equipment through this programme in the past.

 
When you buy school shoes from Shoe Clinic Riccarton you can save yourself money (an upfront discount of either $10 off all school shoes or a free $35 back pack) and help raise money for the school too – for every pair of school shoes sold the Shoe Clinic Riccarton will contribute $10 back to the school.
