Student Dress Code at Taupaki School
We do not have a uniform at Taupaki School.
However we do have a set of guidelines about what students should and should not be wearing based on health and safety and appropriate school wear.
During term 1 and 4 all students must wear the Taupaki sun hat or a wide brimmed sun hat when outside. Taupaki hats are available to buy at the office.
Students should be wearing tee-shirts as opposed to spaghetti straps to protect themselves from the sun.
Dress appropriate for the situation - learning and playing at school
Offensive slogans on tee-shirts are not accepted and an alternative tee-shirt will be offered for the day.
We encourage jewellery to be kept at a minimum at school.
Small studs or sleepers for pierced ears or noses are allowed however - no large hoops, rings or dangly earrings as these can be a risk during sporting and technology activities.
If jewellery is deemed to be dangerous for technology or sports students will be asked to remove it for the activity.
These rules apply for visiting schools that come to learn at the Taupaki Technology centre.
Correct, enclosed footwear is required for the technology centre.
Certain school trips and camps will have their own dress codes due to health and safety and will be communicated in the trip/camp letters.
