Pukehou does not have a compulsory dress code.

We do have a 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).
