    I've bought DD 3 dresses, 1 pair sports skorts, 2 polos (1 white, 1 blue) and 1 pair of dress skorts.
    I have 2 dresses and then 3 polos and skorts.

    My DD would be cross at me if she didnt have dresses lol..

    She's also in the size 4 dresses even though she's normally a 6!

    eta - I spent just over $150 and got the dress, 2 polos with the emblem, a fleece jumper and a hat. I already had a plain red polo and I got a dress from the secondhand shop at school. I will pick up the skorts from Target I think. Then its just socks and runners.

    When my daughter started, I bought her 2 dresses plus two polos and two skorts plus 1 sports shorts and shirt.

    Just to clarify...What do you mean by strict?

    Strict probably isn't the right word. One of my friends is sending her son to a different public school and they basically have colours and tell parents to buy those colours from target k-mart etc. and if they want they can buy see on or iron on school logos.

    DDs school have a uniform to be bought from a retail uniform shop. Whilst it's not compulsory, if you want your child to have the same uniform as the vast majority of other students, you'll buy the actual uniform and not just dress them in the school colours.

    Oh.

    My children have a uniform that can't really be imitated as it is yellow and blue polo
    shirt.

    You could buy cheap shorts/pants but not shirts.

    Our school has a special polo with the name of the school woven into the collar so no imitations for us either.

    Same with our polo shirt and the dress is a specific tartan.

    I usually had second hand uniforms or hand me downs and a different bag to the 'proper' bag at both primary and high school. I always felt like the odd one out, I'm amazed at the cost of the uniforms but while we can afford it, I'd rather buy her the 'real' stuff

    Yeah we are at the local Public School. I can't justify the cost of Private School, especially as we bought in an area where we liked the public school.
