Why do we have a uniform?
The Board Of Trustees, through its community consultation, asked several years ago if the introduction of a school uniform was desirable and the response was overwhelmingly in favour. All students are expected to wear the School Uniform to Carterton School.
Our school uniform maintains our identity as a kura and keeps us united as one. The uniform has been designed to be easily recognisable as Carterton School while out and about in public spaces whilst also maintaining some individuality with students and whanau having a choice of pants, shorts, skirt or skort.
All items of clothing must be named. Please check this often as names wear off. This helps to return items to the owner quicker.
