Uniform Schedule

 

The mandatory uniform for Bethlehem School currently consists of the following items: 

❑ short sleeve shirt 

❑ shorts or skort                                                  

❑ polar fleece long sleeve OR sport hoodie                    

❑ bucket style hat 

N.B Students can continue to wear the old uniform until the end of 2024

 

Hats: Students must wear a school bucket hat. Hats need to be worn during Term 1 & 4. While we do allow a period for students to get back into the habit, after Labour Weekend staff will insist on hats being worn. Students without hats will spend their break times in the shade of the Library. Reminder notes will be sent home for whānau to acknowledge by signing and returning it to the classroom teacher. Caps do not provide enough protection from the effects of the sun’s rays and are not considered appropriate for our students at school. Children wearing caps will be given till the next day to bring an appropriate hat to school.
