Uniform Shop – Relocation (January 2020)

As a result of the building owner’s direction, Chatswood Public Uniform Shop has vacated the location that most of you have come to know at 688 Pacific Highway (white building adjacent to the school car park). The Uniform Shop has been relocated back to Main Campus of the school, at a room opposite the school canteen, please see location in image below. Note that the opening times for the Uniform Shop remain unchanged.

You may be aware that the school is being substantially rebuilt over the next few years. For that reason, space is a challenge around the school at the moment and some uniform shop stock has had to be moved to an off-site storage location, including all off-season uniforms and 2nd hand items.

On a practical level, only the current seasons’ uniforms will be offered for sale at appropriate times of the year, both online and at the shop. Summer Uniform is worn in Terms 1 & 4 and Winter Uniform is worn in  Terms 2 & 3. Change over of seasons’ stock will be notified in the newsletter towards the end of Term 1 and Term 3. Due to space constraints, we will not be able to respond to ad-hoc requests to purchase 2nd hand uniforms. 2nd hand uniforms will only be offered at flash sales at communicated set times in the school year. Accessories, school bags and other school necessities will be offered year round, both online and at the shop.

As a result of this relocation to a much smaller space, there will also be some changes to the way the Uniform Shop and the Online Uniform Shop will operate. Our policies will also be updated to reflect the current setup.

We ask for your full cooperation and patience especially during the first 2-3 weeks of the School Term which are very busy times at the Uniform Shop. We will endeavour to serve everyone in a timely manner, hence it is very important that everyone is clear with the policies and procedures with in-store purchases and appointments. We appreciate that this is a busy time and that this may result in some inconvenience and long waiting times. Wherever possible, please order online. We thank you for your patience.

Full Uniform fittings require an appointment.

Appointments take approximately 20 minutes with a dedicated Uniform Shop member. This is to assist parents with items that are required for the relevant school year, to help confirm sizes of all clothing items and to answer any questions regarding uniforms and/or other essential items for the school year. The chosen items will be packed and ready for purchase at the fitting appointment or can be purchased via our Online Uniform Shop at your own convenience (if preferred).

2nd Hand Uniforms

No ad-hoc requests or purchases. 2nd hand uniforms will only be offered as flash sales at communicated set times in the school year.

We want to reassure parents that if your child does not have a school uniform, this will not be a problem in the short-term, with appropriate mufti/casual clothing acceptable until uniforms can be purchased. While we encourage all children to wear a uniform, if possible, the most important thing is that we see your children at school, ready to start the new year.

We will keep you updated on the Uniform Shop operations through the school newsletter and also the Uniform Shop P&C websitehttps://chatswoodpublicpandc.org.au/shop

Thank you for your understanding and support.
