Our Uniform

The QPS school uniform is compulsory for all students.

There are ‘mix and match’ options available, allowing you to choose items that best suit your child’s needs.

There is a uniform ‘try on’ shop in the school hall which is open from 8:30 am to 9:00 am on Tuesday mornings. 

The regulation P.E. uniform is compulsory for Year 5-8 students (P.E. shirt and P.E. skort). There are no P.E. uniform requirements for Year 0-4 students. The P.E. uniform is not to be used as part of the regular uniform options. It is for P.E. only (students will be given time to change).

QPS School Uniform Expectations

A school uniform promotes a sense of pride, responsibility, and identity within the school and our wider community. All students are expected to wear the prescribed school uniform.

Your child needs to wear the regulation P.E. uniform (shirt and shorts/skorts) as well as tracksuit pants and a sports jacket. QPS does have some sports uniforms to lend to students for this purpose, however, if you prefer, you are welcome to purchase your own. 

This is an optional item if your child is representing QPS at inter-school sporting events. QPS does have a small number that is loaned out to students for this purpose.  

The items are all competitively priced (see price list)

We have chosen a supplier who supplies a large number of schools throughout New Zealand with the same products.  The navy bottoms do have a 10% fade rate and it is recommended to wash and dry these items inside out and out of direct sunlight.

Yes, your child can choose between the cargo shorts and long pants and then the polo top and fleece/jersey/hoodie. Navy poly pros can be worn under the uniform as an extra layer. Please remember that the P.E. uniform is for P.E. only and is not to be worn as part of the regular uniform options.

The uniform shop (QPS School Hall) is open Tuesday mornings 8.30 – 9am for you to bring your child to try the items on for size. There is a select range of second-hand uniforms available to purchase.

The items will take 5 – 10 working days to be delivered.

Shoes need to be predominantly black. These can be either shoes or sandals. Remember that children have some form of P.E. activity daily, therefore their shoes need to be appropriate for sports activities. 

Our girls are able to wear either a skort with tights or long pants (either cargo or track pants) for winter.  They can also wear navy poly-pros under their uniform. 

Sizes range from 4 to 14.  Larger sizes are available, please check the website and our order form.  Click here for the measuring guide.

Navy tights, socks, and navy poly pros are available for you to purchase when placing your uniform order.  We also have available pale blue socks for purchase.  Other options for purchasing tights, socks and poly pros are H&J Smiths, The Warehouse and KMart.

We have QPS soft shell jackets for you to purchase however if your child already has a winter jacket, it is okay for them to wear this instead. The QPS soft shell jacket is an optional uniform item.
