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.

From September 2022, we will transition to our new school tracksuit over the next 2 school years. During that time pupils can wear either the former school tracksuit with white polo shirt or the new school tracksuit with school tshirt. During the transition phase a plain maroon or plain navy tshirt can be worn in place of the school branded tshirt if necessary.

However the tracksuits should not be combined. Pupils should wear one or the other.

 

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

Pupils in 1st class to 6th class have three options. 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

  • Former school 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 

 

Option C: Pupils in any class

  • New school tracksuit and St Kevin’s School crest 
  • School branded tshirt or plain maroon or plain navy tshirt – no crest required on the plain tshirt.
  • Runners

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

Updating the school tracksuit

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.
