The Board of Trustees has been working with uniform suppliers since late 2018 with a view to sourcing good product at more competitive prices.
They have also taken the opportunity to undertake a bit of a refresh of the appearance. Some decisions have now been made and we are pleased to announce that a new uniform shop will be developed onsite in the space where the current second- hand uniform shop is. This shop will stock all of the Kavanagh College Uniform requirements and will be stocked and open from the beginning of Term 4.
The uniform is identical in style and colour to the current uniform with three exceptions – the boys short and long trousers will be a dark navy blue, the socks are a dark blue sock with a maroon strip around the top and the Year 7 – 10 shirt for boys is a white shirt with a thin stripe of blue. The current kilt and blazer are retained.
There is to be a phasing in period with only new students coming in Year 7 in 2020 and students entering Year 11 in 2020 being expected to wear the new uniform. Students at other levels may choose to wear either the new or old uniform in 2020.
We surveyed parents, students and staff in late June regarding the wearing of ties by female and junior students. The response was clearly in favour of keeping the status quo - ties for all students with them being optional if wearing the summer uniform in Terms 3 & 4.
We have some fully made up samples on display in the main school office. Please see the above photo or come in and have a look. Please also see the price list below.
