School Shop staff are able to assist you with the fitting and purchasing of uniform requirements during the back to school period and throughout the year.
The Friends’ School Shop is the only authorised retailer of The Friends’ School uniform. The full range of uniform requirements, excluding shoes, are available at the Shop.
New Rugby Top
The School is pleased to provide new rugby tops available for purchase at our School Shop for K to 12 students.
The tops have been introduced after extensive consultation with parents, which included a feedback survey and an opportunity to review the fabric options. Thanks to everyone who provided valuable input.
This new rugby top is warmer, has more stretch (so is easier for younger children to put on and take off), has reinforced elbows, cuffs and bands for added durability and is less susceptible to fading.
Manufactured in Tasmania, the new rugby top is the same look at the current top (so no need to change over right away) but is made from machine washable, software wool with the traditional collar and stretch cuffs
Price: $85 to $95 (depending on size)
Make: Tastex – Tastex Knitwear and Uniforms is a premium, local manufacturer of knitwear for schools and colleges Australia wide
Sizes & ages: Kindergarten to Year 12
