Astana Office of Education: Instructions of Administrations of Schools for the Purchase of Uniform in Certain Places Are Illegal


Violators will be brought to disciplinary responsibility, as informed by the media center of the Mayor’s Office.

In case of repeated complaints against the principal of the school, the issue of bringing him or her to disciplinary liability will be considered.

“This should not be placed either at schools or on websites. We are moving away from lobbying for any interests, so that parents themselves could choose the supplier that they are comfortable with, either the store or the market, and so that they could buy it as they like, anywhere they like,” � the Acting Head of the capital’s Office of Education Anuar Zhangozin said answering the relevant question.

In addition, the city’s Office of Education has obliged schools administrations to place an electronic version of the emblem on the websites. The corresponding letter was sent to the principals of schools, the work is carried out to avoid lobbying a certain supplier. Thus, parents do not need to buy a jacket or waistcoat with an emblem stitched in it.

“We have sent a letter to all the schools so that they could post a sample of the emblem on the websites. Now any parent can download this emblem, make it anywhere, and sew it on the uniform, and this will be enough,” – A. Zhangozin noted.

In case of inquiries on the new school uniform, please, contact 55-68-53, 55-74-67.
