€370 for uniform and books to come. In 68 fees were abolished but the cost remains. There is nothing to stop Minister Quinn mandating that all state supported schools adopt a simple uniform policy if we wish to have a school uniform. Black or navy trousers/skirt/sweater black shoes white or blue shirt. These are easily gotten and cheaply so. This nonsense of unique uniforms is exactly that..nonsense and an unnecessary expense.
