A shift from the dull black-and-white uniform to a more vibrant combination of royal blue, yellow and white has lifted the spirits of the students.
Now the black skirt and tunic have been replaced by royal blue with bright yellow belts in the case of the girls; the boys in the lower school wear full khaki uniforms and those in the upper school, khaki pants and white shirts. A bright, blue-and-yellow striped tie is now worn by senior students.
Since the change in uniform people look at us differently. Students are equally excited and I am confident that it will bring about positive results at the school.
