Uniform care

Uniform Care


Line drying in shade is always safest option.

Leaving garments on the line for prolonged period of time will cause most fabric to fade, especially in the sun.

If tumble drying, try to use cool or warm temperature, not hot. This will limit shrinkage. Tumble drying inside out will protect the face of the fabric and limit fluffing, pilling and snagging.

Fasten all zips, buttons before tumble-drying.


Do not iron on embroidery or printing. High temperatures will burn the thread on embroidery and may smudge printing.


Please ensure all clothing and personal items are clearly labelled with your child’s name.

All clothing and personal items found abandoned will be taken to lost property.


Always read garment care label before first wash.

Washing inside out will protect the face of the fabric. This will limit fluffing, pilling and snagging and prolong the life of the garment.

Fasten all zips, buttons or studs before washing. This will prolong the life of the zipper and eliminate the risk of damaging other garments during the cycle.

Cold wash is always recommended to limit shrinkage, especially with dark colours and pure cotton garments.
