It is compulsory for all children attending Karaka School to wear school uniform.
The sports uniform will be worn whenever representing the school and at all school sports days.

The PTA runs the uniform shop. This is open usually on a Monday morning between 8.15 am and 9.00 am. Any other time by appointment only, or you can order through the Kindo Shop and the order will be delivered to your child’s classroom.

Clothing and Footwear

The School stresses the importance of naming clothing and personal effects.
It is always a concern to see a growing pile of unnamed property accumulate at the school lost property. Lost property boxes can be found in the wooden box at the rear of the hall.
Footwear-For summer this will be either black or navy sandals with a back strap – black or navy crocs are acceptable. For winter this will be either black or navy shoes (sneakers acceptable if one colour) with navy socks. Therefore jandals, roller shoes and platform-soled shoes are not acceptable.

Hat Policy

A safe sun policy operates in the school. During Terms 1 and 4 children are required to wear a suitable hat that gives protection to the face, ears and neck. A legionaries or wide brimmed hat is most suitable. Monogrammed and plain blue hats are available from the uniform shop. At present this is operated by the PTA on a Wednesday morning or by appointment. Order forms can be obtained from the office or on receipt of an enrolment pack. Those children who do not have suitable headwear are required to stay in the shaded areas around the school. This is enforced to protect children from the intense heat of the sun and reduce the number of children presenting at the sickbay with sun-stroke and related problems.


Orders can be taken on Monday mornings between 8.15 – 9.15 am in the uniform room.
