Winter Kilt
Uniform Committee

31 January 2019

Dear Parents/Caregivers

As part of the Craighead School uniform your daughter will require a winter kilt. The Craighead Uniform Committee shop will have a range of winter kilts on site for sizing. Please complete the order form attached after reading below:

1. To order a new kilt, or if your daughter’s existing kilt requires an alteration:

Our uniform shop will be open on Thursday 21 February for students who have submitted the attached form requiring a new kilt or an alteration. Those students will be rostered from class on this day to attend a fitting or to discuss an alteration. On hand will be seamstress Donna Adams from Uniform4U to assist the students. Please note: If your daughter’s kilt is requiring an alteration she will need to bring the kilt along on this day, Thursday 21 February. After Thursday 21 February, the new kilt order forms, along with kilts to be altered with their appropriate forms, will be sent away to the kiltmakers. Once the order has gone through you will be liable for the cost of the kilt.

2. New kilts ordered:

Once made up, these new kilts will be returned direct to Craighead by the kiltmakers. All new kilts will arrive unhemmed. Over the years it has been proven best to hem the kilt closer to the winter uniform change over date. At an appointed time the Uniform Committee will invite your daughter to the Uniform shop to be measured in her new kilt for hemming. Our seamstress, Donna will take the kilts, hem them and return them direct to Craighead. When they are ready for collection we will send out an email advising families of this.

3. Kilts for Alteration:

These altered kilts will be returned direct to Craighead. We envisage that the alterations will be a quicker process than the newly made kilts. Upon arrival someone from the Uniform Committee will contact you to advise your daughter’s altered kilt is ready for collection and of the invoice amount.

4. Payment for new kilts and kilt alterations:

For a new kilt, payment is made upon collection. The cost of a new kilt is $400.00 plus $25.00 for hemming. Payment for an existing kilt with alterations is made upon collection The Uniform Shop has Eftpos, cash and cheque facilities. Unfortunately, this cost cannot be charged to your school account. We apologise if this causes you any inconvenience. Please find the order form for either a new kilt or an alteration attached. This needs to be completed and handed in by TUESDAY 12 FEBRUARY. You can email order forms to admin@craighead.school.nz or print them out and hand them into the school office. If you have any queries please contact me at uniform@craighead.school.nz

Yours faithfully
