Dress Code / Uniform Info

The goal of the Christian School is to teach subjects from the NZ curriculum while encouraging the development of Christian character along with a passion for Jesus. This means a real focus on encouraging Christ like attitudes and behaviour. The expectation of the Christian School is that this is what parents and students are setting as high priorities in schooling, especially in the Secondary area.

We have clear standards and boundaries for all students and we ask parents to support us by ensuring students are dressed properly before they leave the house in the morning.

Undergarments

Thermals or a short-sleeved T-shirt or similar undergarment may be worn underneath the school uniform but must not be visible.

Hair and personal appearance

Students hair must be clean and tidy at all times with no extremes of fashion acceptable, e.g. Mohawks, dreadlocks, corn rows, rat’s tails, unnatural coloured hair, shaved sections etc.  Long hair must be tied back. We would prefer that hair was not dyed, but if it is, natural colours only.

Boys should not grow facial hair.

  • Make-up is not necessary at school, but if worn must have a natural look.
  • In relation to body piercing, female students only may have a single stud in each ear.
  • Tattoos are not acceptable for students at this school.

Uniform

At Renew School we have a mix and match school uniform, which every student is required to wear for all school activities, including the sports uniform for PE.

Students who attend Renew School are expected to wear their uniform correctly at all times – whilst at school, travelling to and from school; and when representing the school.

School Uniform is to be purchased through Bethell’s Whangarei. (The Strand Shop 14/Vine St.)
