8 Tuesday

8 Tuesday August 23 2016 SCHOOLS ADDINGTON PRIMARY School pupils will get a new school uniform. Over the following weeks, new entrant children will be wearing slightly different attire. As a result of re-branding, the school’s board of trustees has been working with a new uniform supplier. The new kit retains the basic navy blue base items, but the school has changed the colour of its polo shirts from ‘sky blue’ to ‘kelly green’. The polar fleece jacket has changed to a half zip and a navy bucket hat with green under the brim will also become available in the future. All uniform items will have either an embroidered name and logo or a logo only. ​The expectation will be that all students are wearing the new uniform by the beginning of the 2017 school year. SOUTHERN VIEW Addington uniform goes green UPDATED: Jabez Afualo, 8, models his school’s new uniform. ​ BILINGUAL: Melanie Law, Cerys Fletcher, Isabel Becker, Alyanna Suerte-Felipe, Jacob O’Carroll, Emma Brook, Jordi Fajdiga Boyd, Alice Tiso and Saoirse Hill-Shearman are some of the students who took part in the competition.
