Outstanding Winter Sports Uniforms

Wed May 01 03:57pm

As we prepare for the upcoming winter sports season, we kindly request that any sports uniforms you may have at home be returned to us as soon as possible. These uniforms are needed to reissue to our winter sports codes.


Specifically, we are in urgent need of the Touch uniforms from last year and those from this year’s Touch teams. Additionally, there are outstanding netball and miniball uniforms from last year that have not yet been returned.


Please note that if the uniforms are not returned, we will need to invoice the families that have not yet returned them. This is to ensure that we can reissue uniforms to our winter sports teams promptly.


Thank You
