    We've always just done two uniform and one sports. It's never been a problem...they just wear one uniform two days in a row.

    Depends how messy your kids are. My daughter needed s new uniform every day last year in her first year of school as there was always glue stains on her.

    I imagine it also depends on your uniform colours too....but for us two uniforms + one sports uniform works for two kids and I'm waiting to see if it works for the third child before I buy any more uniforms.

    We started prep with 5 uniforms. We were down to 3 for year 2. I am buying 4 uniforms for this year and hopefully they will last 1 more year.

    Our sports is on a wed which means we easily get away with 2 uniforms as i wash them on sports day ready for the thurs n fri.

    If sports was a diff day would prob need 3 uniforms
    Yep, this. Also depends on your schedule, eg, do you wash clothes everyday, etc. I work part time and have Wednesdays off, so I wash the two uniforms on a Wednesday so she can wear a clean uniform everyday.

    This! Dd7 goes through two uniforms max a week but dd5 starts prep this year and she will be lucky to be able to get 2 days out of 1 uniform! She's.just.messy ha ha.
    She's got 2 dresses and 2 tops&shorts , I doubt it will be enough but I'll buy more if i need to. Dd7 has 2 dresses and I'll get one top&shorts for her but she'll get a fortnight out of that.

    Then there's the winter uniform, 2 long sleeve tops and trackpants, and they can wear their summer dress with tights or leggings. Plus a jumper each. It gets pretty cold in melbourne.

    My dd isn't in school yet, but I'd say 5, if you can afford it.

    I'm feral. DD had one summer dress, one sports uniform and one winter uniform.

    I'm stocking up this year because I'm lazy, but it was fine last year. The uniforms were v wash and wear.

    I have 2 sports and 1 dress for both my kids. I wash Tuesday night.

    The kids can wear either the sports uniform (school polo and black shorts/skorts) or the dress any day they wish.

    I have noticed that my DD who is going into year 5 only wants the polo shirt and shorts now.
