Our uniform - comfort, standards and pride

For Years 1 to 12 – uniform is compulsory

If your child is in Years 1 to 12, a uniform is required. It is designed to be neat and comfortable, and to maintain a standard of dress for all ACG Strathallan students. Your child will enhance this standard by coming to school clean and well-groomed – proud to be a student at ACG Strathallan.

The ACG Education Board reviews the uniform from time to time, making changes when necessary. You can purchase a new uniform for your child at:

The Uniform Shoppe
28A Wood Street, Papakura
09 299 8416

Find the shop online at www.theuniformshoppe.co.nz

Second-hand uniforms are also available at ACG Strathallan. Please contact us for further information.

Grooming rules – showing pride in the school

To maintain school standards, we ask that your child abide by the grooming rules. If your child is very young, this is your opportunity to instil good grooming habits, if you haven’t already.

  • Your child should come to school in a clean, ironed and well-maintained uniform
  • For girls, skirt length must be above the knee, and shirt buttons done up
  • Keep your child’s hair tidy, clean and a natural colour – we don’t accept extreme hairstyles such as shaved heads, spiked hair, dreadlocks, beaded hair or hair extensions
  • If your child’s hair is below the shoulders or longer, please tie it up with a blue, black or white headband or hair tie
  • Boys, if required, must be clean shaven
  • Your child may wear a watch, one necklace, two rings and two small studs per ear – we don’t allow any other jewelery
  • Please don’t permit your child to wear obvious makeup, and clear nail polish only

Year 13 – developing good judgement

As an opportunity to develop mature judgement, Year 13 students are not required to wear a uniform at ACG Strathallan. We encourage Year 13 students to be mindful of their leadership role in the school and the community, while expressing themselves through individual style.

Clothing for Year 13 students should be of a high standard, reflecting the formal work-day environment of the school.
