Case Study:

Popondetta International School

Popondetta International School (POPIS) is an IEA owned and operated private institution, located in Popondetta town. The school provides learning from Prep to year 8 and also operates an Early Learning Centre for 3-5 year old’s.

Just like their focus on quality education, quality uniforms was a key factor for this international school, and asked Pacific Uniforms to help design them a new look in 2020. Offering a high degree of performance, customisation and quality, we felt the products from our TURA Sports brand would offer considerable value to this client.

Our team first met with the school's leadership team and got a clear understanding of their requirements and preferences around uniform colours and styles, as well as the types of merchandise they would need. They required a range of uniform solutions across their teaching and student bodies, as well as sporting apparel, merchandise and accessories.

Engagement with the school community was also on the agenda, with a survey being run at the school on the two designs presented by Pacific Uniforms / TURA Sports. 

As testament to Pacific Uniforms approach to quality product, customer service, timely deliveries and ability to streamline customs and clearance processing, Pacific Uniforms was awarded a five year contract with the illustrious school. The students, parents and school community couldn't be happier with the result. "Ms Udu was in constant communication with the school and was always available for a quick dialog. She provided updates and kept us in the loop every step of the way." said Brian Samson, Head of Site at POPIS.

The new look uniforms were also used a marketing tactic, attracting new students to the school. They also help identify students better and ensure the school is more visible at school events. The custom polo we developed features high performance fabric, ideal for breathability, wicking sweat, odour control and low iron properties – perfect for busy students!

Head of Site, Brian Samson, has enjoyed working with our team and had this to say of their experience, "Although manufacturing and delivery of the uniforms took a little longer than we had initially anticipated - this was a direct result of the Covid19 pandemic lockdowns, flight restrictions and all – our orders arrived in the first week of August to our delight. Remember we wanted a uniform facelift? Well, what we received was a complete turn-around! Our students, staff and community members were all in absolute awe when we received our individual orders and started wearing them to school."

"Not only are the designs unique but the Polo wear has a strikingly suitable impression on the weather we get in Popondetta – much better than what we had before. They are super outstanding and give us a comfortable feeling throughout the day! The feedback we continue to get from students, parents and the community is overwhelmingly positive. We would highly recommend Pacific Uniforms to any institution, company, club, organisation or individual for all your uniform essentials. The customer service is second to none - it is the best!" Brian Samson continues. 

Uniforms have a powerful impact on how people feel when they wear them – encouraging a team spirit that can have a direct impact on people's mindset, motivation and community spirit.


The formal uniforms, sports uniforms, branded merchandise and accessories we delivered to this school now communicate the proud school culture that POPIS is well known for. We look forward to helping this school grow in the years to come.
