St Mary’s CBS uniforms are available from Shaws, Portlaoise. This year, we have a new uniform jacket, which is also available from Shaws. It will have the student’s name embroidered on the jacket to help in identifying who owns which jacket. In order to allow time for the names to be embroidered, it is important that you order as soon as possible, to ensure you have the jacket in time for September.

This jacket is shower proof, has a reflective stripe and is a much better fit and fabric than the previous jacket. The price is €60. For any students going on school trips, sports outings, etc, they will be expected to wear the school jacket. They will not be allowed to wear another jacket. There are several reasons for this, one being easy identification by the teachers in charge of the group. We would appreciate if parents would purchase this jacket. Over the 5-6 years which students are in the school, two jackets would see them out, making €120 over 5-6 years pretty decent value.
