CLOTHING - (PLEASE NAME EVERYTHING)
Initially children will find buttons and zips difficult to manage. It would be helpful if the child wore pants with an elastic waist.
Please see that all jumpers, coats, hats and jackets are clearly marked with your child's name and that he / she recognises his / her own belongings. Water proof pens are an easy way to write your child’s name on labels of clothes. Please check that names do not wash off as children’s uniforms look the same.
Encourage your child to take care of and be responsible for his / her own belongings.
Teach your child to tie up his / her shoe laces, do up buttons and zips, do up their pants and be independent.
Encourage him / her to want to wear clean clothing and be tidy.
It is important that your child has a hat / wide brimmed at school every day and uses sunscreem as a protection from the sun. Hats are compulsory in terms 1 & 4.
An art smock is essential for protecting your child’s uniform when completing messy work. It can easily be made by altering a shirt so it can be worn back to front. It is also important that it is labelled clearly with your child’s name.
