About Us
Over the years, the school uniform has undergone quite a few changes. The girls wore a green and white checked dress with a belt and a brown brimmed hat. The boys wore white shirts with the brown and green striped tie, grey shorts and long grey socks with brown school shoes. As the years progressed, the girls’ brown hats were eliminated and open brown sandals were introduced as an option for footwear.

When national awareness for effects of too much sunlight was brought to the fore, Manor Gardens supported the “Slip, Slap, Slop” campaign and introduced white wide brimmed sun hats for all children to wear outdoors.

In 1997, the new school uniform was introduced – bottle green golf shirts with the white school badge on the pocket, and bottle green Bermuda shorts with open brown sandals. This uniform was for both boys and girls. The checked green and white school dress had the waist and belt removed and the girls had the option of the shorts and shirt, or the dress. All children had the option of open brown sandals or white ankle socks and brown school shoes.

Today in 2013, the school uniform remains the same. A new P.E. kit has, however, been introduced. Children wear green P.E. shorts, and a T-Shirt in their sport house colour, with the Manor Gardens Badge printed on it.
