Here's a little more information about 

UNIFORMS

Starting Year One is always an exciting time and buying uniform is all part of the process! Here is some important information about how to order Discovery College Uniform for your Year One child. 

How to order? 

Discovery College uniforms can be ordered online and delivered straight to your home, or you may collect them in person at uniform showroom in Lai Chi Kok. Simply go to the website, click on the Discovery College logo and browse our uniform collection. 

www.schooluniform.hk 

What’s the ordering deadline? 

We encourage parents to place the uniform order by 30 June 2021 to guarantee delivery by early August. Orders placed after this 30 June 2021 will be filled according to availability of stock, and delivery cannot be guaranteed. 

 

What size do I order? 

The correct fit for uniform is important and returns and exchanges may incur additional costs. When you click through to each item of uniform listed on the website, you will see a small ruler and the words “View Size Guide”, under the product details. This leads to detailed sizing information for that garment. As an example, the size chart for the primary school polo shirt is attached HERE.

 

Please take full advantage of this sizing information to assess the correct size for your child, remembering to allow for summer growth. All measurements given are for the garment, not the child. It may be helpful to measure an item of clothing that currently fits your child and compare the online measurements with that. 

Can my child try on the uniform? 

The DC PTA has sample sizes of the Discovery College uniform. You and your child may visit the shop and try on the uniform to determine the appropriate size to order. You will need to book an appointment to visit the PTA Shop. Click HERE to book your appointment. The DC PTA Shop is open Tuesday and Thursdays from 8:00 am to 3:15 pm. The shop will be closed after Thursday, 24 June 2021 for the summer holidays and will re-open, Thursday, 12 August 2021. 

How do I pay? 

Payment is by electronic means only – credit card or Paypal. Our supplier does not accept cash or cheque payments for online orders. Accepted credit cards are Visa, Mastercard and American Express. 

What to order? 

Below is a suggested ‘starter kit’ for Year One students: 

- Unisex Grey Hat (compulsory for all Primary School students) 

- Unisex Primary Polo Shirt (horizontal stripes) x 2 

- Boys Grey Shorts/Girls Grey Skort x 2 

- PE House Colour T-Shirt x 1 

- Unisex, Black PE Shorts or Girls PE Skort x 1* 

*Please note: The Girls PE Skort is optional; PE Shorts can be worn by both girls and boys.

 

Discovery College has no distinct summer and winter uniform – all items can be worn all year round, according to your child’s comfort. Additional cold weather items are available as follows: 

- Unisex Grey Sweater 

- Unisex Grey Fleece Jacket 

- Unisex Grey Windbreaker Jacket 

- Boys Grey Trousers/Girls Grey Long Pants

What if I have some uniform already? 

If you have uniform items from an older sibling, these can be worn by your child for the coming school year. There is no expiration on the use of those uniform items. 

Is there an option to buy second hand uniforms? 

The DC PTA sells gently used uniforms that have been generously donated by previous students, or students who have outgrown their uniform. These items are sold at discounted prices and the money raised helps to support various class parties and functions throughout the school year. You must book an appointment to visit the DC PTA if you wish to purchase second hand uniforms. Please click HERE to book an appointment. The DC PTA only accepts cash for second hand purchases. 

If you have any questions regarding Discovery College uniform, please contact the Primary team via Karina Cann at cannk1@dc.edu.hk 

Full details of the College’s dress code can be found in the Parent and Student Handbook
