      Personal Presentation

      No make-up (this includes eyelash extensions) or coloured nail varnish is to be worn with school uniform. One plain, small stud may be worn in each ear lobe. Additional body piercings must not be visible. Tattoos must be covered. No other jewellery is permitted unless proper application has been made to the Principal and consent given. Consent will be given only in exceptional circumstances and with special provisions. 

      Hair must be tidy: short enough to clear the collar or tied back neatly. Red, white or navy ribbons can be worn. Hair should be a natural hair colour. Hijabs/head scarves are required to be a plain, solid colour that complements the school uniform e.g. navy blue, white or black.

      A nylon raincoat of approved navy-blue shade or a parka of navy-blue or safety yellow may be worn. 

      The Parent-Teacher Association runs a second-hand uniform shop. The contact telephone number is available from the school office, or the email address is: ptashop@cghs.school.nz.
