    Default How much do you pay for your childs school uniform

    So, another thread got me thinking... how much does everyone pay for their kids uniforms?

    Highschool- $400 each
    Primary school- $150 each
    Expensive yes, but they are quality clothes so do last a long time and as I have 5 kids they get passed down so I save money there.

    My kids all go to state schools.

    $192 - 2 shirts with logo, 1 polo top with logo, sports shorts, bag with logo, hat with logo, library bag, poncho and two pairs of shorts ( from target) would have been more if I'd have bought the shorts from the school shop too!

    I feel it's expensive for a 5 year old who will grow out of them by next year and this is not including his winter uniform!! Then you have to factor in $100 on a pair of shoes!!!

    Obviously this doesn't include socks, scungies, shoes, runners. I should also add that we needs 3 X everything so it's quite expensive.

    Ours need a whole set of new uniforms this year (for our house, and their mother's), as they have changed supplier and logo (eyeroll)... they probably would have anyway as both have grown a lot over the last 3 months.

    DSD- $320
    DSS- $205.50

    Total: $525.50

    And, like last year, 90% will end up at their mother's and we will never see it again (even though we pay for the entire cost, and half of her lot too).

    ETA: That's not including bags, shoes, socks, accessories... Spend up to $200 each on shoes alone. It's crazy.

    Summer-
    Summer dress- $70 (I was actually surprised by this I expected more)
    Sky blue socks you can only buy from the school clothes shop!!! - $16 for 2
    Hat- $27

    Winter-
    Tunic- $107
    Peter Pan shirt- $38
    Tights- $15
    Jumper with logo $80

    Sport
    Skort - $39
    Polo tops- $27
    Rugby jumper -$80

    She needs at least 2 of everything!

    Bag with logo $70
    Library bag with logo- $17

    Then her school shoes were $112 and sport shoes were $70.

    Pretty annoyed too because last year she was in kindergarten and the uniform is different so this year I had to buy all the new uniforms! She still fits in her kinder uniform so it feels like such a waste!

    I did an estimate at a school list I was looking at, and it's looking like something like $250.

    Default How much do you pay for your childs school uniform

    I have spent $230 so far and I need to buy shorts/skorts and pants from elsewhere as the uniform maker at dd school doesn't make then skinny enough for her so probably $300 once I've done all that, I want to buy her a winter dress at $45 as well but they don't have one small enough
    Edit to add- I've spent $100 on shoes as well, I need to buy lots of white socks as well as dd has a tendency to take her socks off and lose them

    $300 including a school bag.. That was also just a summer uniform, with a jacket and a windcheater. I'll be putting the winter pieces on laybuy soon.
