The school uniform is seen by the school, Board of Trustees and community as the major form of identity and belonging to Blockhouse Bay Intermediate.

The development of pride in belonging to the school is fostered through the wearing of the school uniform.

  • The school uniform and PE uniform is compulsory.
  • Correct school uniform should be worn to and from school.
  • Correct school uniform or PE uniform should be worn at school.
  • All items of uniform should be named.
  • A school sun hat and cap are available for students to wear. We strongly recommend that students wear either during the first and fourth terms.

Students are responsible for their own clothing and should take care to avoid loss. The Warehouse New Lynn carries a full range of uniform items. Ph 09 827 6939.

If a student is seen to be deficient in any item of uniform, or is wearing an additional or alternative item, a supervising teacher is entitled to ask for an explanatory note. A “uniform pass” will be issued for a suitable period of time during which the deficiency should be rectified.

Ear studs (plain gold / silver stud per ear is allowed) and watches are allowed but no other jewellery (rings, bangles, necklaces) is permitted as it can be dangerous or a hazard, especially when playing sports or while at technology classes. We do not allow Nail polish, make up or body piercing. Lines or designs shaved on your head. Mohawks or hair colouring are not permitted at school.

We've also prepared this handy Uniform guide that contains lots of photos of Uniform dos and donts.
