New Urangan school uniform design up for consultation

A PROPOSED design for Urangan State High School's new uniform will go up for parent consultation in the school's foyer from Monday.

One mum will also present a cheaper version of the new uniforms as she says the price rise will be too much for struggling families.

Prices for formal shirts, polo shirts and skirts are all likely to increase by about $5-$10, principal Ross Zelow said.

The uniforms will be introduced for new students next year and be mandatory for all students when Year 7 moves into high school in 2015.

Mum Bridget Hanberg said her proposal would provide block-coloured polo-shirts with an emblem that could be sewn on.

"People depending on second-hand uniforms won't be able to get them for at least two years," she said.

Parents will be able to fill out an online survey on the school's website, or go on to their Facebook page to comment on the new designs.

Mr Zelow said the school would then begin giving the feedback to the P&C by the end of the week.
