Kowloon Junior School Uniform 2021- 2022 – Information for current families
For the 2021-2022 school year, Kowloon Junior School is transitioning to a fully online model for uniform ordering and delivery. The last day of direct selling for the KJS Uniform shop will be Wed, 30 June 2021.
We want to thank the PTA for the support they have given the school community over the years, with regards to the provision of uniform for all our students. They have done an outstanding job, and have been fully supportive during this process of transition. The move to online provision allows KJS to become fully compliant with education bureau guidelines and offer uniform of consistent, high quality at competitive prices.
We are asking all parents to read the following information carefully, as it contains important information on uniform arrangements for the summer period and the new school year.
Where to order?
The web site link for ordering KJS uniform is www.schooluniform.hk
When you go to the website’s home page, there are two areas for purchase of KJS uniform.
At the top of the home page, you will see the Kowloon Junior School logo. Click on this and browse the new KJS uniform collection. Orders placed online via this part of the site will be delivered to your home. Some items are currently available on a pre-order basis, and all main site online orders will be delivered to your home no later than the first week in August. From August 2021 onwards, standard delivery time for online orders will be 3-5 business days.
Scroll down to the bottom of the home page and you will find the KJS Sale & Clearance site.
Currently, this includes two compulsory items: Sun Hats and Library Bags. After 30 June, the PTA’s remaining uniform stock will be added to this site. All purchases from the Clearance Site, can be collected from the PTA office at school up to 30 June. Orders placed after 30 June will be available for collection in August, before school goes back. Further information regarding collection arrangements will be sent out nearer the time.
Do we have to order all new items?
When you browse the new uniform main site, you will notice some changes. Kowloon Junior School will be transitioning from the current beige colour to navy blue, for its shorts, skorts and long trousers. The PE Tops and shorts have also been updated. This transition will commence in the 2021- 22 school year.
Please note: There is a transition to full adoption of the new uniform of three years.
All students are permitted to wear any of the current uniform until the end of the 2023/2024 academic year. The PTA has stock of a number of items of uniform from the previous supplier. These can be purchased from the shop up to 30 June, and via the KJS Sale & Clearance Section of the website after that. Your purchase of these items will support the PTA and help the PTA to support the school.
Please note that if you have a Year 5 or Year 6 student who will go to KGV for secondary school and has grown out of their shorts, skorts, trousers or winter wear, the navy blue items can be worn as part of KGV’s uniform, as well.
What size do I order?
The sizes for the new uniform are not the same as the current uniform. The correct fit for uniform is important and returns and exchanges may incur additional costs. When you click through to each item of uniform on the main 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.
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.
The KJS PTA shop has a full size set of samples of the new uniform (and the current uniform) available for parents to check sizing. Please note that due to health restrictions, it is not possible to try on samples at the PTA Shop, at the current time. However, you can compare sizing to existing garments. The PTA shop is open weekdays, until 30 June. Please contact them to make an appointment. (Email: firstname.lastname@example.org; Tel: 3765 8709).
Parents and students can also visit the supplier’s retail outlet at Lai Chi Kok for fitting and ordering. Please see the website for details (www.schooluniform.hk/pages/contact-us).
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.
Please note that payments for the Sale & Clearance Site are also by credit card. After 30 June, the PTA can no longer accept direct payments for uniform. All purchases need to be through the website.
