uniform

Cosgrove School requires all pupils to wear school uniform. This is compulsory and was implemented because of popular demand. The school uniform must conform with school colours and logo.

The Cosgrove School uniform is available from two suppliers. These are:

The Uniform Shoppe at 28A Wood Street Papakura Ph: 09 299 8412 ext.1

The Warehouse at Takanini Village Ph: 09 215 0260

Shoes – no particular style or colour of footwear is prescribed, unless required for a specific sports or class trip

Please note that over 2017 and 2018 we are phasing out the gold polo and standardising to black skort, culottes, shorts and track pants. However, over this two year period all options are allowed. In 2019 the items marked ‘*’ will no longer be official uniform (as the suppliers run out of these items they will not be restocked).

The school does not sell second hand uniform, but we do have supplies of ‘emergency’ uniform for use when a student does not have correct uniform for that day. These items must be returned to school.

If a parent has long term problems with ensuring their child wears the compulsory uniform, they need to contact the classroom teacher as soon as they are aware of the situation.

Personal Appearance

We ask that your children take pride in their appearance, and that uniform and personal appearance shall be clean. Singlets or t-shirts underneath the uniform must not be visible. In winter long sleeve t-shirts or thermals must be the same colour as the polo.

Children must not have nail polish. A child’s hairstyle must not draw undue attention to themself, and we ask that all students have natural coloured hair only.

If children have pierced ears, we require them to wear small stud earrings only, as a health and safety precaution. No other jewellery can be worn, except where permission has been granted by the teachers for items of special religious or cultural significance.


Lost Property

If your child has lost items of their school uniform or other belongings, please check with your child’s classroom teacher.

We urge you to ensure that all items of uniform and belongings are CLEARLY NAMED. And please check that names are still clear, as with ongoing washing the writing can become faded. Named clothes will be returned to the student in class.
