School fundraising that's practical AND boosts school pride
It's no surprise: I'm a huge fan of perfectly matched school uniforms.
In fact, it was my own daughter's need for a very specific colour of bow that gave me the idea for my School Ponytails brand.
After manufacturing a small amount for my daughter and her friends, it dawned on me that every school in Australia should be able to supply students with co-ordinating accessories. If they couldn't have them on hand in their Uniform Shop, there was a huge potential for the school's P&C to Fundraise with Bows!
My primary aims were to ensure the products were of a high quality, so that schools would be proud to support us.
I also needed to keep the retail prices affordable, so we were an option for parents.
I had to do whatever I could to maximise the profits for schools, and minimise the effort put on their volunteer community nationally.
We've gone on to become Australia's best choice for school uniform and sports accessories, and proudly supply hundreds of schools and thousands of shoppers nationwide through our online store, and in a wholesale capacity. We deliver on these goals every day, whether it's to a school, sports club, or community group.

YOUR SCHOOL VALUES ITS COMMUNITY APPEAL
Uniforms unify and help to build the reputation of your school. They foster a sense of identity.
The classic and perfect finishing touch is a uniform bow: in your exact colours.

It's easy to talk about the importance of your uniform policy, and encourage the "not-quite-right" stuff to become weekend-wear if you're offering the right alternatives to parents.
