School Blazers

Posted on December 12, 2018

Dear Parents and Caregivers 

The current practice of lending blazers to students for school events and team functions has come to an end.  The cost to the school, loss and damage, and time consumed issuing, collecting and reissuing blazers are the main reasons behind this move.  We also plan to move to metal badges best worn on blazers.  Students who require a blazer for a premier group or team will have the following options:

  1. Rental at $80 per year, including a $20 deposit paid upon return.
  2. Purchase of a second hand blazer through the school uniform shop at $120.00.
  3. Purchase of a new blazer from John Russell Schoolwear at $230.00.

As with other uniform items a bigger second hand market will develop over time.

The school will have a very small stock of blazers for one-off events where the school expects a blazer to be worn. The school can assist families with a payment plan in cases of financial need.

Students not in a premier group or team do not require a blazer but are more than welcome to purchase one should they wish.

Yours sincerely

Steven Hargreaves
