I am pleased to announce we are making a couple of adjustments to the school uniform. We are going to add grey track pants for the winter months and a skort for the girls to provide an alternative to the pinafore. The skort has the same colours and pattern as the pinafore. These are available along with the other uniform at The Warehouse and the code for the skort is 70744. Again along with the other uniform this is the SchoolTex -school wear. Picture attached.

The grey track pants are just plain and you can purchase these from a shop of your choice. They do not need to be expensive, designer track pants. Both boys and girls can wear these.

We are also looking at ordering more hoodies and sport shirts, order forms will be sent out next week for this.

PE day will be every Thursday this term so please send the children along in PE clothing.

If your child does not have the school sport top yet then they should wear a top of similar colour (blue) and blue or black shorts or tights. Running shoes are essential.

Next week we have visitors from the Peace Run talking to the students. This will be at 9:15 on Wednesday the 27th, parents are most welcome to join us.

KingsView Uniforms Available

School currently has a large amount of uniform items that have kindly been donated by families who no longer require them.

We have: Winter and Summer shirts, pinafores, boys’ shorts,and jerseys.

We would prefer that the school community get to use these items rather than having it sitting on our shelves.  If you need any uniform items, these will be available on Friday 22nd February in the School Hall from 8.30am.   If you need anything prior to that, please contact Lucy on 027 264 4567 and she can let you know what we have.  

If you have any uniform you would like to donate to school, please drop this at school and it can be added to the supply.

No payment is required for this uniform; however a donation would be much appreciated.
