As you probably realize, we have school colours at the Albany schools. The colours chosen were red, grey and white. We appreciate the need for flexibility and practicality in this matter, therefore the idea is for parents to interpret the use of these colours in the way they wish. Some suggestions are as follows:
We feel that the wearing of school colours can help to develop a sense of pride and belonging to a group, but it may also help to relieve parents from the worry of keeping abreast with fashion conscious children.
We would ask also that children are provided with PE clothing within the colour range. PE clothes should be shorts, vest/t-shirt and correctly fitting plimsolls.
