Uniform

The Tai Tapu School uniform is compulsory.

Purchasing

The uniform is available from the Wairakei Road branch of Mainland Uniforms or uniform items can be ordered online direct from the Mainland Uniforms by clicking on the link below. Your order will be delivered direct to your home via courier at a small charge.  The school receives  a cashback from Mainland of 10% for all uniform items sold.
The school will be holding a stock of all uniform items with one in every size so that children to can be properly fitted.  If an incorrect size is ordered it will be the parent’s responsibility to have it exchanged at Mainland Uniforms (via post at your cost or visit).  No refunds will be given just exchange.
If you do not have access to the internet you can pop into the school to borrow a computer to put your orders in.  We want to have this system as automated and seamless as possible so we are not offering any other alternatives.
