The Hout Bay International School uniform is the most visible marketing brand of our school. More often than not it is how we as a school are judged by visitors and the local community. As such, every student in our school is a walking ambassador for HBIS and therefore should always wear the uniform with pride. This comprehensive document contains everything you need to know about our uniform. Parents and students are expected to adhere to these regulations at all times.
ONLINE UNIFORM SHOP
As of August 1st, 2018 HBIS Uniform Shop has gone online via the Hatrick website. All uniform can now be purchased via the link below.
For your convenience sample sizes of most items are available to try on in the Finance Department on the mezzanine level of the Administration Block. This service will be available on Monday and Wednesday Afternoons between 13:00 and 16:00.
There are two delivery options available:
- Free delivery option: Items ordered will be delivered to the school every Wednesday
- R100 Delivery fee option: Items ordered will be delivered to your home/place of work. Delivery will take 3-5 working days if an order is placed before 15:00.
Certain calendar days are scheduled as No 1 Uniform days (usually Mondays when we have assemblies). These formal days require students to ensure that they dress accordingly. Certain formal functions during the year may also require students to wear their No 1 Uniforms.
MARKING OF UNIFORMS
Parents are to ensure that every single item of their child’s uniform is clearly marked before the start of the school term. The School does not assume any responsibility for any lost or stolen items. It remains the responsibility of every student to ensure that they look after their belongings.
Depending on the activity, students are to travel in the required Sports Uniform. In most cases the IES school tracksuit should also be worn, with the exception of Cricket where the boys are required to wear their school blazers over their white uniforms.
Unfortunately, the online school Uniform Shop does not currently stock blazers. Parents are requested to please dry clean their child’s blazer at least once a term depending on how dirty it is. Students are also reminded that they should polish their shoes on a weekly basis
At all interhouse events students are required to wear their House shirt (red, green, blue, yellow) with either their IES PE shorts or IES Tracksuit pants. Students may also purchase a House pin from the uniform shop to wear on their School Blazer.
