Oamaru Intermediate School uniform shoes

We have had a number of questions related to school shoes. Students are required to wear plain black leather lace-up shoes. The shoe and sole of the shoe must be black, no big branding detail on the shoe. Canvas shoes and other casual shoes are not suitable. The important aspect to consider is that your child will be wearing these shoes while in our technology rooms where safety is paramount and must be adhered to. This is applicable from the first day until the last day of the year.
