    Default School uniform question - boys

    To those who have boys in primary school - how many of each uniform item do you have?

    I will need to buy DS polo shirts, long sleeve polos, shorts, trousers, jacket and a hat. I guess he should be okay with one hat and one jacket, but he'll need a few of the others.

    Do you have enough items to cover the whole week, or have less items and wash during the week?

    Default School uniform question - boys

    My DS is in grade 3 I've always bought 2 jumpers, 3 track pants, 2 shorts, 5 tshirts, 2 skivvies for under his tshirts and 5 long sleeve polo. Boys tend to gets more holes then girls in clothes I've noticed.

    I buy everything from Kmart and target. Target have the nicer polo's then Kmart but trackies at Kmart where better then target. He also has 2 hats. He's in public school but he still goes dressed neatly everyday

    Default School uniform question - boys

    DS is in grade 4, he has one hat, one jumper, one long sleeve polo, one short sleeve polo, one pair of pants and one pair of shorts, and a house sports colour top. As he wears them out or puts holes in them I get a new one. I don't wash them during the week unless he's really marked them up which is usually only his shirt and it goes on a quick wash as soon as he's home and hung out to dry. He's at public school but I buy from the uniform shop as it lasts better (pants and shorts, school top with logo compulsory)

    ETA: DS uniform is navy

    I have 2 shirts 2 shorts and a sports uniform.
    Same for winter really. Plus the school jumper, 1 hat (now 2 because he thought he lost one) and stacks of socks.

    Allows me to wash and have a spare, but he's been pretty good this year and hasn't been too filthy lol.

    Last year in kindy/prep, he was a mess every day.

    Ps agree with the holes, esp in the sports tracksuit. I'm constantly having to patch it up.

    My DS is going to a public school too, but all their uniform items are from Lowes and have emblems on them! $30 for a short sleeve polo shirt

    DS is grade 1. He has a range of things, but my general rule is he wears the same for 2 days (obviously unless it's dirty) then he changes. So I have 3 sets of uniform that only gets washed on weekends. He only has 1 pair of trackies though as he is a shorts all the time kind of kid. I think when he gets older, and stinkier, I'll get him a polo for every day to change.

    My DS is in grade 1. He has about 8 shirts as some were hand me downs from neighbours, and 4 pairs of pants. But I doing at least one load of washing every day so he just usually wears the same set. The others are just backups in case I'm sick or something.

    Minimum 3 t-shirts, 3 shorts, 3 long pants for winter, 2 jumpers. We do several loads of washing every week so the minimum gets us by, more is a bonus. They pretty much need clean clothes every day so it depends how often you do washing.

    Default School uniform question - boys

    I have 3 long pants, 3 shorts, 1 sports shorts, 1 long sports pants, 3 jumpers, 1 jacket, probably 6 school shirts as they are the same for boys and girls and he's got some of my daughter's old shirts. Honestly, he gets so dirty I have to wash his uniforms during the week so they're clean. My daughter has 3 long pants, 2 jackets and shirts and her jackets, shirts and pants stay clean for the week

    I have a girl, so I hope you don't mind me answering.
    I'm starting with:
    2 Summer uniforms
    1 Winter uniform (I'll buy another as it starts to cool down)
    1 jumper (same as above)
    1 sports uniform
    1 cheap spare set as a backup
    1 hat
    School shoes
    Joggers

    It's pretty crazy, isn't it. When it's a public school, I think they need to be considerate of some families not being able to afford the correct uniforms.
