Uniform & Equipment


Why wear a uniform? Wearing a uniform creates a sense of belonging to the CGPS community. It teaches children to dress smartly and take pride in their appearance.

Parent’s role: Dressing each morning is part of preparation for the day ahead. It is important parents encourage & support this so that children are in the right mind set for learning & success.
