Sense of Identity
At Green Bay High School all students, except Year 13, wear the school uniform. It also provides a measure of security by identifying non-students on the school property.


  • Students must abide by the uniform/dress code regulations as agreed at enrolment.  Uniform and dress code standards apply when travelling to and from school or on official off-campus activities.
  • Generally, permission will not be given to wear non-regulation items. However, in some limited circumstances, this will be considered by the Deputy Principal – Student Services.  Such requests must be made in writing by a parent or guardian, and will only apply for a specified time.
  • Any student who is wearing an incorrect or inappropriate item of clothing is required to report to Student Services at the beginning of the school day. They will be expected to remove non uniform items, and will have them replaced for the day by school owned items.  These are to be returned to student reception at 3.15pm.  School-wide consequences apply when this procedure is not followed on school mufti days, the Year 13 dress code applies to all students.


The uniform should be clean, tidy, smart and worn as designed.  Our uniform has a wide range of items to choose from so all students should be able to find a suitable combination.

  • Garments worn under the school uniform may only be white.
  • Jackets and jerseys must be only the regulation design and pattern.
  • Make-up is permitted, but should be minimal and discreet.
  • Jewellery should be minimal. (A maximum of two small studs or sleeper earrings per ear, no visible necklace(s), and one small nose stud is permitted.
  • Shoes must be plain black, flat and lace up.
  • Caps or beanies must be plain dark navy or black with no labels or advertising.                                   


While Year 13 students wear mufti, they have an obligation to meet a grooming and presentation standard which is not less than that expected for other students.

  • The choice of clothing for mufti must be appropriate for school and worn with regard to safety, especially in the laboratories, PE and workshop areas.  This includes skirts or shorts of a suitable length (at discretion of level dean and no ‘spaghetti’ straps or halter neck tops.
  • Students must select clothing, which is neat, tidy, not worn out or dirty.  It must have no objectionable or offensive messages or pictures.
  • Students will not wear bare feet or jandals.  In the workshop and laboratory areas students must wear covered shoes.
  • Make-up is permitted, but should be minimal and discreet.
  • Jewellery may be worn in moderation. (See above).


Education in New Zealand is universal, compulsory and secular and so are our school uniform and dress code guidelines. However, we recognise that some people may wish to depart from our dress regulations for cultural or religious reasons. In these circumstances, the parent or guardian should discuss this issue with the Deputy Principal Student Services.
