Keep current KGV uniform the same for Y13's for year 2018-2019

As year 13's only have one year of school left and we finish during 2/3 of the academic year, we strongly believe that it is deemed unnecessary for us to buy a whole new uniform because it is a waste of money, and quite simply unfair. Environmentally, this is unsustainable for our ecosystem further increasing the wastage of fabric and clothing. Let us not forget that in the graduating class of the year 2014-2015, the "Tucking in shirt" rule was not considered for the Year 13's as they had the old shirts. Students have been reusing their siblings uniform for years and for many of the new students in year 12, they will be required to buy a completely new uniform, when they have only worn their uniform for one year.
In fact, over 16 million tons of textile waste was generated in the United States, of which 2.62 million tons were recycled, 3.14 million tons was combusted for energy recovery, and 10.46 million tons was sent to landfill. Furthermore, the annual environmental impact of a household’s clothing is equivalent to the water needed to fill 1,000 bathtubs and the carbon emissions from driving an average modern car for 6,000 miles.
