Johnstown Boys National School – Used Uniforms – June 2018

Monday, 25.06.2018, is the last day for uniforms in The Boys National School.

From Tuesday 26.06.2018, boys will be allowed to wear non-uniform clothes to school.

NOTE – We ask that students going on school tours next week, hold onto and wear their blue polo shirts for their school tour days only. This is to assist teachers and minders during the tours, to identify their groups.

Used uniforms, in good, clean condition, can be taken to school from Tuesday 26.06.2018 onwards. Uniforms will be sorted and sized between Tuesday & Wednesday of next week and on Thursday morning, 29.06.2018, at 9.10am, uniforms can be viewed and collected, free of charge in “The Halla”, in the girl’s school.

This is a great opportunity to get some uniform items for your children for the coming year, and also an opportunity to give your children’s current uniforms to other parents for use next year.

We ask that any name tags be removed and again, that those uniform items be sent to the school in good, clean condition.

Thank You.
