I've got a year two (boy) and kinder (girl) and we have a full uniform set of clothes for each day because I do everyone's washing weekly (each person in the family has their own day). It is expensive to buy it all as its all logo/school specific but I do not want to be washing through the week and I'd have to as my son plays soccer at school and comes home filthy! I've only bought them one wet weather jacket and two hats each. They have jumpers for each day too.
I got 2 of everything except hat and jacket and lots and lots of socks those things disappear more than knickers!
DS started Prep this year.
I brought 3 polos, 2 pants, 2 shorts, 1 jumper, 1 zip fleece jumper, 2 sun hats <- all school logo
Then I got 1 coat and 2 beanies from Best n Less.
I only wash once a week, so he gets 2-3 days out of the pants/shorts & polos but he stays pretty clean so I can get away with it.
Ds2 started school this year and he has got 5 polo's, 3 pairs of shorts, 3 pairs of pants and one jacket. As long as they're in the school colours it doesn't matter if they have got the logo which is good. The school provides the hat, but if it gets lost we have to replace it.
My 6 yr old has 2 short sleeve shirts, 2 long sleeve shirts, 2 pants, 2 shorts, 2 jumpers a jacket a hat and a set of sports uniform. This covers winter/summer/sports uniform. I bought them a bit big for him when he started kindy and he's still wearing them in year 1! The still look good too! He wears them for 2 days then they go to the wash. What he has covers 1 week.
My 5 yr old, in QLD, has three sets of formal uniform, one set of Sports uniform. One hat.
Plus one jumper, one pair of long pants and two long sleeve polo shirts for the colder days!
I thought three sets of formal uniform better than two or I wouldn't keep up with the washing and be caught short....
