ST Martins De Porres School introduced a new school uniform for Foundation Phase pupils on Tuesday.

Pupils, starting from Grade R to Grade 3, arrived at school in green shorts, T-shirts, and green socks for the boys and green-and-white striped socks for the girls.

Foundation Phase head of department Sister Staff Dlamini said the reason for the change in uniform was to make the children comfortable and stand out.

“Before, pupils from Grade R to Grade 3 wore the same uniform as the senior phase. I felt that the long grey pants are for bigger people and shorts and T-shirts would be ideal for the little ones.”

She said at the end of last year she came up with the idea of changing the uniform and in February parents agreed to implement them.

“Parents have been very supportive, they all paid their money for their children's uniforms and were excited. None of them complained about the cost,” she said.
