Poll: Should schools have generic uniforms?

Josephine Franks Reporter from East & Bays Courier

Kia ora neighbours,

It’s the school holidays, which means many parents will be assessing whether they need to re-stock on uniform, or if that jersey can last another term.

Do you think schools should have to offer generic uniforms rather than expensive branded items?

Wales has passed a new law requiring schools to consider ways of keeping costs down - for example, stipulating basic colours but not styles so items can be bought from multiple outlets, or only having the logo on one item.

Do you think our Government should follow suit to help keep costs down for parents?
