A school uniform is compulsory and an important part of the school’s image. A neat appearance is always noticed and reflects well on the school. It is a simple, practical uniform and can be purchased from stores in Swakopmund. Good quality second-hand items are sometimes available and items, which your children have outgrown, can always be recycled through the school. Please ensure that your child’s clothing is clearly marked to prevent any unnecessary losses.
