    Uniform

    General Information

    Wentworth expects students to take pride in their uniform and to wear it correctly at all times. When students are in school uniform, school rules apply. Correct official uniform is required for:

    • attendance at school
    • travelling to and from school
    • attendance at school functions away from school (sports tours, cultural and social)

    Incorrect uniform, or a mixture of school uniform, sports gear and civilian clothes, is not acceptable in the street. At the end of an after school sports practice, students may either change into correct school uniform or go home in the College sports gear. Students not in the correct uniform are required to have a note from home explaining the reason for the discrepancy and the note is to be handed to the Deputy Principal or Head of Primary at the beginning of the school day. Shorts must not be worn below the knee. Both trousers and shorts are to be worn at the waist. Jackets and raincoats must not be worn inside the classrooms. T-shirts, singlets and other underwear worn for extra warmth must not be visible.

    Shop Hours

    All new uniform items for both Wentworth Primary and College are sold from the uniform shop located at the College, 2 doors down from Reception. During term dates the shop is open from 8:15am until approx. 9:30am on Tuesday mornings, and again from 2:30pm until approx. 4pm on Thursday afternoons. Opening hours during school holidays are notified to the parent community through the weekly e-newsletters.

    Second hand uniforms can be sold direct by parents through the UniformMe website – uniformme.co.nz. In the ‘Location’ box, select ‘Wentworth School & College’. From here, go to ‘Buy Sell & Trade’, create an account, and you’ll be able to buy and sell second-hand items. Alternatively, some parents prefer to sell second-hand items through the Facebook group, “HBC Second Hand Uniforms”.
