5. Trial Period: We highly recommend a 'trial period' for samples, to test factors such as wear and tear/durability, colour fastness, design/style, on a number of different students of different ages, build etc.

6. Final Sign-Off: After making any changes needed, the samples would be signed off by Board of Trustees/the Principal.
