Pukehou does not have a compulsory dress code.

We do have Pukehou Sports Shirts which are allocated to students for the year and are to be worn ONLY when representing Pukehou School for sporting fixtures.

Pukehou has a keen desire to encourage ‘cover up’ in summer months with hats, sun screen, sleeves and shade. Children are required to wear a hat between Labour Weekend and Easter (a brimmed hat or legionnaires cap).
