Uniform by Amie Blackwell


We are proud of our uniform and wearing it correctly with pride demonstrates respect for our Riccarton Way. All students must wear the full and correct uniform, including footwear, at school, to and from school and when representing the school.

Uniform can be purchased from NZ Uniforms, either online or in store at 455 Blenheim Road, Christchurch – just down the road from school (opposite the Z service station on the corner of Curletts Road and Blenheim Road).

Opening hours: Mon-Fri 9:00am to 5:00pm and Saturday 9:00am to 4:00pm.

NZ Uniforms have a range of payment options including Uniform Club and financing. NZ Uniforms can also prepare WINZ quotes.
