HBHS Term Three Hair & Uniform Reminders

HBHS Term Three Hair & Uniform Reminders


Personal Presentation

Hamilton Boys’ High School insists on high standards of personal presentation and we ask for your assistance with this. We ask all parents to attend to hair and uniform issues with their sons over the next few days, so they come back to school ready for work and prepared in their presentation. Jerseys, shirts, shorts, trousers and socks may need repair.

Boys need an appropriate hair cut to ensure their hair is short back and sides and of even length. Students whose hair is longer than regulation will incur a detention (see below for regulation details).

Socks - Boys’ socks need to be long enough to pull up to the knees. If socks do not reach the knees they need replacement. Garters should be purchased or made to assist with this. The School Shop provides free garters with the first pair of socks sold. Garters are also available for sale at $4 a pair.

Shoes - Must be black, leather, lace-up, clean and shining. If sandals are worn, they must be the standard black or brown Roman style and must be in good repair. 

Jackets - If your son chooses to wear a jacket, it must be the official school jacket.

Lost Property - This is held in the Student Services Centre. Lost property will only be held for four weeks. Please make sure all clothing is labelled to make it easy to return to your son.  The person in charge is Mrs Margaret Clark Tel: 853 0440 mclark@hbhs.school.nz

Labels - Naming Uniform – we ask parents to name all school uniform. Shoes can be labelled as well. Two label companies are listed for iron-on or stitch labels:

1. Logo Express, Centreplace ph 838 3688  
2. www.Nameit.co.nz for online ordering

Hair - Is to be short, neat and tidy, of even length, following the natural hairline above the collar, ears and eyebrows. Hair must not be braided, dyed, waxed, straightened, nor be tied, spiked, or cut with ridges. All students are to be clean-shaven.

For further clarification of our uniform and hair rules, please refer to your son's School Diary (pg 133).

Thank you for your assistance and for checking your son when he leaves for school and returns home each school day.

Kind regards,
