Can you spare a few hours each week or month? We would like to hear from any parent willing to volunteer some time to the school by assisting in the Uniform Shop. This would involve helping in all aspects of the operation of the shop during open hours, approximately 4 hours a week.

If any parent is interested in helping, please contact Mrs Jan Burbidge either at the Uniform Shop or via the School Office on (08) 9537 0000.

PLEASE NOTE

Lost Uniforms

Please check your child/ren’s uniforms for names. If the item is not yours, please return it to the School Office as soon as possible, where we are able to give the item to the correct child. If you know the child, please pass it on to the owner.

Please be mindful that all items of clothing MUST have your child/ren’s name on them. This will not only reduce the risk of lost items, which result in additional costs for families, but items can easily be returned.

Second hand Uniforms

A new system has been developed to help process the 2nd hand uniforms into the shop & sell on for you. Unfortunately, any item that has been taken in cannot be returned if either unsuitable or unsold. Please bare this in mind when bringing in uniforms to sell.

Have you any uniforms that no longer fit, re-sell them through them through the uniform shop. If the items are freshly laundered and in a very good condition, I would like to assess them to possibly include in our second hand section.

Forms are available from either the uniform shop, Reception or online – details needed:

  • Name and address – so payment can be deducted from your school fees – once items are sold
  • Date purchased – this will help set the selling price

The selling price is set at 60% of the original price, and then you received an increased figure of 75% of the reduced selling price.

Exchange or Refunds on New Uniforms Items

We are always willing to exchange or refund new items purchased if they are the wrong size or if a parent has changed their mind. However, these items need to be:-

  • Returned with the original purchase receipt
  • Still have the original tags attached or in packaging
  • Be unworn/clean, as when purchased
  • Un-laundered

Any item that is marked in anyway, whether it has been worn or not, will not be accepted for a credit or exchange for a different size or item. Your co-operation in this matter would be appreciated. There is no refund on any secondhand items.

Pre-Ordered Items

All pre-ordered items will only be held for 10 working days once contact has been made – after this time the items will be put back on the shelf.

Dry Cleaning your Blazer

The purpose of this article is to provide some guidance and advice relating to the safe laundering and dry cleaning of your Frederick Irwin School Blazer.

The first rule is that blazers should never be home-laundered. Treat your blazer like any suiting jacket – which is dry clean only. Just like a suit, blazers have high quality fabric (containing wool) together with fusing and lining which must be professionally cleaned. A quality dry cleaner should be used where possible.

The above said, there are some dry cleaners that do not always dry clean in accordance with garment specifications. The primary complaint about dry cleaning is over-heating. When a blazer is over-heated, the fusing (used to make collars and the lapel maintain shape) will come away from the fabric and result in bubbles, a wave pattern or bulging. An experienced dry cleaner will know this and can prevent this from happening.

Frederick Irwin’s blazer manufacturer recommends using a larger-scale dry cleaner rather than small shopping center-based dry cleaners. Larger volume dry cleaners tend to be more professional and have experience with special garments. If you are in any doubt, do not be afraid to ask questions about the dry cleaner’s practices and knowledge.

Sound dry cleaning practices will ensure your blazer will last longer.
