What are the guidelines and rules for wearing uniform at Mahurangi College?
Our school uniform is to be clean, tidy, worn correctly and must be named.
How long can students wear the 'old' uniform items?
In 2017, we reviewed and changed the uniform at Mahurangi College.
The introduction of the new items has been phased in over the last few years.
2019 was the last year 'old uniform' could be worn.
From the beginning of 2020, 'old uniform' can no longer be worn.
Who can wear the formal uniform?
Students who are representing the school on a special event can borrow a blazer.
Prefects and top teams have the option of buying a blazer. See Sue O'Reilly for further information.
There are certain rules around wearing a blazer.
Boys must wear long pants and the school tie.
Shoes need to be leather lace up and clean,
Hair must be tied back.
A blue or white school shirt must be worn under the blazer.
Blazer borrowing rules must be adhered to.
Is there anyway to buy second-hand uniforms?
There are several options. One is attending the Unicycle sale that Friends of Mahu run on the first Friday of each term. See more information here. Alternatively you can try local buy and sell pages and groups online (Eg. Mahurangi College 2nd Hand Uniforms Group on Facebook. Note: this is a community run group independent of our College).
Girls - Girls wear a school shirt and a school skirt or a pair of unisex shorts. School trousers can be worn in term 2 and 3.
Boys - Boys wear a school shirt and a pair of unisex school shorts. School trousers can be worn in term 2 and 3.
Year 13 - Year 13 wear a white school shirt with the same school shorts, school skirt or school trousers.
Students in Year 7-10 are expected to wear the school PE uniform.
We highly recommend purchasing a mouth guard, available at the sports office for $5, for any contact sports in PE lessons. We also recommend wearing trainers for some lessons due to the nature of the activity.
