We take pride in wearing our uniform at Mahurangi College. We aim to look smart, professional and tidy at all times. See below for our guidelines and rules for wearing our uniform at Mahurangi College.


What are the guidelines and rules for wearing the uniform at Mahurangi College?

For health and safety reasons, at times students will be asked to remove jewellery in which case the student is responsible for its care.


A school jacket or jumper is part of the uniform and both are designed to keep you warm.

  • A plain black or white short sleeve tee-shirt may be worn all year under the school shirt, but must be tucked in and not hanging out below. In terms 2 and 3 a plain black or white long sleeved tee-shirt/thermal may be worn under the school shirt for warmth. (Year 13s undershirts must be white).

At full day school events students can wear any sun hat.

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 Katrina Ashton for further information.

There are certain rules around wearing a blazer.

  • Boys must wear long pants and the school tie.

  • Shoes need to be black 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?

At the moment, the main way is by using the 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). In the past, Friends of Mahu have run the Unicycle secondhand uniform initiative. At the moment this is paused, due to a lack of volunteers to run it. If you'd like to help, please get in touch with us.

House T-Shirts

House t-shirts can be purchased through student services for $15 each. Payment can be made online to the school bank account using your child's name, house colour and reference to 'House T-shirt.'
