RECYCLE AND REUSE...
Uniform Open Days: Tuesday 25th July & Tues 22nd August 2023.
10am - 12.30pm
We will be opening the school for two days, one at the beginning of the summer holidays (Tues 25th July) and one at the end (Tues 22nd August), where all parents/carers or pupils can come and find pre-loved uniform. There is an optional charge of £2 per item, £1 per shirt.
At St Joseph's we provide a Recycle and Reuse policy. This means two things:
1. If you have good quality pre-loved, clean uniform and exchange it for a bigger size or simply pass on last year's blazer as it no longer fits, then we welcome all donations.
2. You can pop into Mrs Kents' office and (for an OPTIONAL donation of £2 per item) you can find all SJHS uniform you need, we are always ready to help, at any point during the year. Also, watch out for dates in the summer holidays where we open the school to kit out your young people before the next academic year. This is incredibly popular, and we are proud to say helps hundreds of families every year.
Sometimes your child might need a blazer, tie, trousers, skirt, shirt or jumper to tide them over until you can organise a replacement, they may have damaged their uniform in school, or they are simply growing so fast you can't keep up! Whatever your requirements we can help thanks to donations by local organisations, grants and past students - we can always help if you are in need. Just ask your form teacher or email firstname.lastname@example.org and we can try to assist you.
New SJHS uniform is available from:
Macey Sports, Caerleon Road, Newport
