About Whanganui


New and secondhand uniforms are sold by Andersons at 184 Victoria Avenue, Whanganui, phone (06) 348 9232. We recommend you contact Andersons to set up a charge account.

If you set up an Andersons account, uniform can be delivered to school. For junior students, we recommend buying in season to avoid growing out of items quickly. It is possible to buy as required, as deliveries can be made on the same day as required. However, fittings are important and every opportunity is available to discuss uniform requirements with Andersons.
