Non-uniform day Friday 5th April 2019

4 April 2019

Friday April 5th is a non-uniform day where we are hoping to raise money for those recently affected by Cyclone Idai. An estimated 2.6 million people have been affected in Mozambique, Malawi and Zimbabwe. At least 480 people have been killed and an estimated 400,000 have lost their homes.

People often ask about non-school uniform days. Hopefully the section below will help answer any questions you may have:

In exchange for a suggested minimum donation of £1, students may wear their own clothes. It is important to make it clear that students must still wear appropriate clothing for a school day. The day remains a normal school day so all other expectations regarding the wearing of sensible shoes, non-revealing clothes, levels of makeup, jewellery and hairstyles which form part of the school uniform policy will still apply.

As a general rule, the 3C’s for Non-Uniform are – Clean, Comfortable and Covered!

If every student and member of staff supports this event by donating the minimum, we would raise over £1200 in one day which would be an amazing achievement.

Should students wish not to wear their own clothes they can attend in full school uniform as normal. These students will still be able to make a donation to charity should they wish. Students should bring the donation with them on the day: this money will be collected during registration.
