Stamford Primary hit headlines last year when the uniform supplier ran out of stock.

Pupils ended up wearing both the old and new attire on the first day of school.

This year, things went much more smoothly.

Principal Robin Ong told The New Paper why last year's revamp was necessary:

l The previous uniform design had been in use since the school started in 1984.

l The new outfit is more comfortable as it is designed with better material. It also "serves to foster a strong sense of belonging and pride in the school".

l Surveys and focus group discussions in 2011 and 2012 showed a majority of parents, students and staff supported a uniform redesign "to enhance the comfort of our students".
