How much does it cost to purchase a school uniform for a child getting ready to enter public school Monday? Does a school uniform consist of a skirt and/or pants and a shirt/blouse or does it include shoes etc. etc.?

I will be buying Melanie's uniform Monday morning. She is 7 years old.
The uniform consists of a pair of black shoes, a plain (non fancy) jean pant and a polo shirt or shirt in the school's color of choice (usually white, blue or green), as well as a white T-shirt and plain white tennis shoes.
I don't know yet about the shoes but most other items run around 170 to 300 pesos each. It would seem practical to have at least 2 polo shirts and 2 pants for rotation.
Most department stores and big bazaar outfits are currently full of "generic" school uniform clothes.


I will confirm Monday night but I expect to spend about 1500 to 2000 Pesos.

the public school uniform in the entire country is khaki pants and a blue, button front shirt. girls can wear a khaki skirt, but it's a specific style (a non-flattering one, at that). the shoes in most public school don't matter, but most kids wear black. some of the schools have a patch that needs to be sewn on the shirt.

the blue shirts go for 200 pesos and less in santiago.

150-175 PESOS for blouse
200 -225 PESOS for pants or skirt
The school makes about 20 pesos per item(makework project for local tailor and seamstress)
