Uniform

The Howick Intermediate uniform is supplied by John Russell Schoolwear in Howick. We take a good deal of pride in the presentation of our students and appreciate your support in helping us to maintain the high standards that have been established. 

You can download a copy of the uniform price list with examples of acceptable footwear here.

For summer (Term 1 and 4) students wear plain, flat black school sandals. For winter (Term 2 and 3), students wear leather lace-up or buckled school shoes (no sports, sneaker or skate style shoes and no flat pump/ballet/slip-on style shoes). In winter, girls wear long, knee length white socks and boys wear long, grey knee length socks with gold and burgundy stripes. Socks are expected to be worn pulled up.

A reminder that our policy stipulates one small plain stud in each ear lobe. Other body piercing is not accepted unless for genuine religious or cultural reasons. A wristwatch may be worn.

Hair styling products, unnatural hair colour or styles, or extreme colouring or streaks and patches of colour, are not permitted. Hair over the collar or longer is expected to be tied back. Hair ties should be black, white or burgundy.

Cosmetics are not to be worn to school.

Wearing the school hat is compulsory during Term 1 and 4.

The school jacket is an optional uniform item. It may be purchased to provide additional warmth when students are outdoors.
