Uniform

The school promotes the wearing of the school uniform at Ilam.  The wearing the school uniform enhances the school identity, provides good quality, economical clothing and eliminates problems of clothing competitiveness.

Uniform is available for purchase from The Warehouse, Blenheim Road and Mainland Uniforms, 405A Ilam Road and Mainland Uniforms, 511 Wairakei Road.

For safety reasons, earrings (other than studs), jandals, jewellery (including wristbands) and unsuitable footwear will not be permitted.

PTA – Second Hand Uniform Sale

The Ilam School PTA does not run an on-site school uniform shop, however, co-ordinates a second hand uniform sale once per term where school uniform items are available for purchase.

Unfortunately, due to the logistics involved in organising this event, PTA volunteers are unable to act upon requests by parents for specific uniform items to be held.

The sale is usually held on the first Friday of each term, on a cash only basis.

Please see the current school calendar on the Ilam school web page (www.ilam.school.nz) or the PTA notice boards in the Senior and Junior schools for the next sale date.
