Many New Zealand secondary schools still have a compulsory uniform for pupils. It is often justified on the grounds that it is cheaper, more egalitarian and fosters a 'school spirit'. At Epsom Girls' Grammar School in Auckland in 2011 there were a range of school uniform options, including culottes for summer and a tunic for winter. Senior (Year 13) students wore a full-length skirt, and Muslim girls were permitted to wear headscarves.
