School Uniform

The St. Kevin’s school uniform and PE uniform are both available from The School Wearhouse with more information available at: https://www.schoolwearhouse.ie/st-kevins-national-school-greystones-products.

Both Junior and Senior Infants wear their PE uniform to school every day.

From September 2021, families of pupils in 1st class to 6th class have two options for their child. They are as follows:

Option A:  Pupils in 1st – 6th class

  • Maroon jumper with St Kevin’s School crest. 
  • White polo shirt (long or short sleeved – no crest required on the polo shirt).
  • Grey school uniform trousers/St Kevin's School skirt/St Kevin's School pinafore - families can decide which of these three options their child will wear. For example – if a girl wishes to wear trousers as part of her school uniform, she can wear grey school uniform trousers. (girls’ grey trousers will now be available from https://schoolwearhouse.ie/).

Please note - 

  • Leggings are not permitted with the school uniform.
  • Black school shoes – it is most important that if your child is wearing their school uniform, they wear black school shoes. Ugg boots, Converse runners or similar styles are not permitted as part of school uniform and we ask that families cooperate respectfully with this.

By utilising this option, families of children in 1st – 6th classes who would prefer that their child continues to wear the school uniform each day and their tracksuit for PE days still can. However our Board of Management has also included Option B below for families to allow their child to wear the school tracksuit each day instead.

Option B: Pupils in any class

  • Maroon tracksuit with a green stripe and St Kevin’s School crest 
  • White polo shirt (long or short sleeved – no crest required on the polo shirt).
  • Runners 

From May 1st – September 30th – school shorts can be worn instead of tracksuit bottoms

Updating the school tracksuit

We are also looking at updating our school tracksuit to give us a really smart and comfortable option for pupils. The phasing in of the tracksuit update will commence September 2022 with the old tracksuit being decommissioned on September 1st 2024 so as to minimise cost and inconvenience for families.

General notes:

  • Hair must be kept out of the eyes at all times and long hair must be tied back.
  • Make-up is not permitted.
  • The wearing of earrings can cause problems for children during many play/activity periods and the loss of treasured jewellery can be very upsetting for children. Therefore while watches are allowed and one stud earring may be worn in each ear, jewellery is not recommended.
  • All items of uniform including coats and hats should be clearly labelled with your child’s name.
  • Every child should be encouraged to take responsibility for his/her own appearance.
