OFFICIAL SCHOOL UNIFORM
As from January 2014, Rand Park Primary will have a school jersey with a school badge embroidered on it. Plain navy blue jerseys will no longer be allowed. This item will be available from our stockists soon.
This decision has been taken in order to protect and enhance the identity of the school. Learners don’t necessarily always wear the bunny jacket which is the preferred choice of uniform but chooses to wear the blue jersey with no form of identification this minimises our identity as a school. Thank you for your co-operation.
