Taihape Area School


 Uniform

 

TAS see uniform as an important aspect of our School. We also believe it should be accessible to purchase and affordable. The official supplier is Schooltex and the TAS uniform is available at the Anna's (main street Taihape) and the Warehouse (Palmerston North).
 
 
 
The Uniform Committee has adopted the generic colours of navy and black to improve accessibility for items such as jackets, dress trousers, socks and tights. 
 
 
 
Please contact the School Office if you have any queries.
