UNIFORM

The wearing of school uniform is a pledge of loyalty to the school and an important contribution to the school tone. A uniform dress code reinforces in students a pride in their own appearance, instils recognition of themselves as an integral part of the school community and assists in developing pride in representing their school.

The school uniform, is available from our school office. Students should wear correct school shoes every day except on sports days when sports shoes must be worn. Girls are to wear navy socks and boys grey, white socks may be worn with sneakers on sports days.

THONGS AND SANDALS ARE NOT PERMITTED

Summer uniform is worn during the first and fourth terms and winter uniform in second and third terms. A buffer period while the weather is changing is allowed.  Students may wear either summer or winter but NOT a mixture of both. During winter, extra clothes may be worn under the school uniform for warmth, as long as these cannot be seen. White coloured tee shirts only, are to be worn under the school uniform.

Sports uniform is for Sports Day only (each Wednesday) and may be worn to school. Students may also wear sports uniform to the Cross Country, Athletics Carnival and Swimming Carnival.

NOTE:

  • Label ALL uniform items clearly with the child's or family name.

  • Jewellery and make up are not part of the uniform. Please speak to the Principal about jewellery of cultural or religious significance.

  • Only stud earrings no greater than 5mm (plain gold, silver, clear plastic) are accepted - no hoops/sleepers.

  • No other piercings are accepted e.g. no eyebrow, nose, lip, tongue or multiple studs on upper earlobes are permitted.

  • Parents/caregivers are expected to write a note of explanation if their child is not wearing their full school uniform. Consistent lack of full uniform without a reasonable excuse will result in parents being contacted and if there is no valid reason then the student will face appropriate consequences.

  • If the uniform issue persists a meeting with parents and principal will be arranged to resolve the issue.

  • Any families experiencing financial difficulties and are not able to meet the uniform requirements should contact the Principal.

Nurture for today. Learning for tomorrow. Character for eternity.
