    Default School uniforms

    Just make sure everything is really clearly labelled. EVERYTHING! The number of bits and pieces that get left behind at the end of the day and never get claimed is amazing!

    My DS has 3 uniforms and a jumper for winter.
    I think for next year i will buy the kids 5 uniforms each so i can be lazy and wash once a week.

    2 summer dresses.
    1 sports uniform (shorts plus t shirt)
    2 hats
    2 sets of winter uniform plus lots of stockings
    1 sports jacket
    1 cartigan ( need to buy another in the winter)

    Thats it pretty much. The girls have a choice of wearing shorts and t shirt instead of dresses in the summer but most don't want too. Same with winter there is a choice of pants and long sleeve tops but they mostly prefer the dress.

    DD has 3 sets of everything, winter and summer, but one set of sports clothes. They only wear them once a week so multiples just isn't needed.

    For school next year DS has 2 of everything, with one jumper. I will buy him another next year as the weather turns cooler.

    Our school has gone thru a transition the last few years of replacing the uniform. It looks much smarter, but everything has emblems or can't be bought cheap at best and less so they are a bit expensive. The only thing I get there now is sports shorts and socks.

    We bought 2 shirts, shorts, jumpers (1 second hand), 3 pairs of socks, 1 sports top, 1 sports shorts, 1 rain jacket, 1 woolen jumper and 2 pairs of tracksuit pants. We didn't buy winter uniform yet. It is expensive uniform and I hope to go back & get another set 2nd hand if I can, or maybe 2 more.

    I bought a 'uniform' for my ds for Kinder for this year as they didn't have a uniform and he went 5 days a week. I bought Target tracksuit pants (I think 7 pairs), and shorts from Best & Less, and short & long sleeve polo's from Target & Best & Less. The tracksuit pants didn't last the year unfortunately as they all got holes in the knees (grr!!). Everything else was fine. It was nice not having to wash uniform during the week as we're really busy, but I can't afford to buy that many of the 'proper' school uniform clothes for next year.

    I think that is fine except as pp said at least 1 more hat.

    Especially when my girls were little I used to make sure they had a spare hat in their bag to save the tears in the playground if they lost it during recess and then weren't allowed to play at lunch. We usually found them eventually but things get lost or left all over the school!

    Will she do PE or Sport? Our school does PE on different days for each class and asks that the girls wear the skort & polo version of the uniform (they don't have the sports uniform until Year 3) on those days. They don't have to except this year when the whole school did gymnastics for one term. They didn't mention prefering the skorts & polo for PE until a few weeks into the year when they told us when they wanted them to wear their sneakers so then there was a mad rush of everyone trying to get that uniform if they didn't get it. Not sure if that applies to you but though I would mention just in case.

    I have 3 shirts and we did have 3 bottoms (well, 3 Summer, 3 Winter), but one pair of shorts got a hole in the bum so now just 2 pairs shorts because I haven't been able to find any more in her size for months!

    2 jumpers. 1 hat.

    A million billion pairs of socks have been purchased this year, but I think I'm lucky if I can find one or two pairs each morning. lol.

    If you can get the cheap substitutes from department stores, do that. If you can't (we can't because the stupid shirt is a printed polo, one of those shiny ones... it's so annoying because they cost $50 each!)... well yeah, just buy the stupidly overpriced school ones.
