Green Bay High School Uniform
Our uniform encourages a sense of identity with the school, and provides a common standard of grooming on which to build positive attitudes to neatness and cleanliness. It will also provide a measure of security by identifying non-students on the school property. At Green Bay High School all students, except Year 13 students, wear the school uniform. School uniform items are ordered online using your debit or credit card. There is an option available to generate a quote to take to WINZ or another charitable organisation. Orders will be delivered directly to your door! Please note, there will be a slight price increase effective from 1 July 2022.
Uniform items are to be purchased online from the official uniform supplier ArgyleOnline, see the section below for specific uniform items and prices and to place your Order. Parents and caregivers will find this online ordering system quick, easy and efficient to use.

Uniform Dress Code
Students must abide by the uniform/dress code regulations as agreed at enrolment. Uniform and dress code standards apply when travelling to and from school or on official off-campus activities. Generally, permission will not be given to wear non-regulation items. However, in some limited circumstances, this will be considered by the Deputy Principal – Student Services. Such requests must be made in writing by a parent or guardian, and will only apply for a specified time.
Any student who is wearing an incorrect or inappropriate item of clothing is required to report to one of the Deputy Principals before school, or to Student Services at the beginning of Period 1 so that the matter can be remedied before classes for the day. Students will be expected to remove non-uniform items and will have them replaced for the day by school-owned items. These items are to be returned to student services at 3.15pm. School-wide consequences apply when this procedure is not followed.
On school mufti days, the Year 13 dress code applies to all students.
Uniform Etiquette (Years 9-12):
The uniform should be clean, tidy and worn as designed. Our uniform has a wide range of items to choose from so all students should be able to find a suitable combination.
- Shoes must be flat, plain black, with black soles and black laces.
- Socks must be plain black (no logo) and ankle length.
- Extreme hairstyles and/or artificial colouring are unacceptable.
- Hair accessories (hair bands/ties etc) must be navy blue or black in colour only.
- Nail polish is to be clear, with no artificial tips or colouring.
- Makeup is not to be worn.

- Garments worn under the school uniform must be white only, and must not be visible. (No coloured t-shirts).
Grooming Etiquette for Year 13 Students
While Year 13 students wear mufti, we have an expectation of ‘smart-casual’ dress. Clothing must be appropriate for a school setting - which is the combined workplace for staff and students.
- Student dress must be respectful of this setting.
- Students have an obligation to meet a grooming and presentation standard which is not less than that expected for other students.
- Clothing must be neat, tidy, not worn or dirty, and not ripped or frayed.
- Clothing must contain no objectionable or offensive messages or pictures.
- Clothing must be worn appropriately in regard to safety; especially in laboratories, PE and workshop areas.
- Students must wear footwear; jandals or slides are not acceptable. Closed shoes are required in workshops and laboratories.
- Extreme hairstyle and/or artificial colouring are unacceptable.
- Jewellery must be kept to a minimum.
Cultural or Religious Considerations:
Education in New Zealand is universal, compulsory and secular – and so are our school uniform and dress code guidelines. However, we recognise that some people may wish to depart from our dress regulations for cultural or religious reasons. In these circumstances, the parent or guardian should discuss this issue with Sandy Begg, Deputy Principal.
