NPS Dress Code Policy
NPS School Dress Code Policy
It is expected that students wear the school uniform every day except when it is a special event that has been communicated to parents. It is the school’s belief that a school uniform develops a sense of belonging and pride in our students and promotes school spirit.
From 2021, all uniform purchases are now outsourced to a private company UMS
It is strongly advised to label all clothing to assist with the return of lost clothing.
