Waitaki Girls' High School

Our Uniform

 

At Waitaki we take great pride in our attractive red and black uniform. Whenever our girls travel to other schools and events, people invariably comment to them about the smartness of our uniform.

All Waitaki girls are encouraged to keep up this tradition and we look to parents to support us in this.

All uniform enquiries can be directed to Mrs. Dixie Boraman who can be contacted on (03) 434 8429 or Mrs Sally Grant on (03) 434 8429 EXT 206.

The school uniform shop is open Thursdays Term time from 1:00 p.m. to 2:00 p.m., or by arrangement. We now accept credit card payments. A surcharge of 2% on payments will apply.
