Wearing of the school uniform is compulsory at school and when travelling to and from school.

Shirts are to be tucked in and shoes kept cleaned and in good order. Hair must be neat and styled in a manner in keeping with primary school standards. Hair for boys and girls must be their natural colour. Students (girls) with hair longer than collar length are to wear their hair tied back. Students (boys) must have short, neat, tidy styled hair. All hair must be clean and a fringe that is below eyebrow length must be clipped back. Jewellery is confined to a chain with a religious significance (medal, cross), a watch and earrings. If earrings are worn they are limited to plain gold or silver studs or sleepers and only one pair may be worn at a time. Bracelets and rings are not to be worn.

Kindergarten and Pre-Primary students need to wear full school sports uniform. This can be worn with either white socks and predominantly white lace up sneakers, or school sandals as their school uniform requirement throughout the year. On the day that the students have Physical Education Classes the Kindergarten and Pre-primary students wear their faction coloured shirt. Predominately white sneakers with white laces should be worn on this day.

At all times students are to wear the uniform with pride and respect for all that it symbolises. Physical Education and sports clothes are to be worn correctly on the days set aside. Faction sports uniform can be worn every (Faction) Friday. School hats must be worn during school hours whenever the students are outside and when attending an excursion. The school sun hat will need to be worn during recess, lunch breaks and during outdoor activities.

A “Uniform Infringement Notice” will be sent home, to notify parents, if a child is not wearing the correct uniform. A Repeat notice will result in a meeting with the Assistant Principal and then Principal.

All items except sport shoes and school shoes are to be purchased from the school Uniform Shop.

IMPORTANT INFORMATION REGARDING SCHOOL UNIFORM

Wearing of the school uniform is compulsory at school and when travelling to and from school.

The nature of school uniform and the manner in which it is worn sets a tone in our school. It also serves as a public relations exercise while our students travel to and from school. Therefore, it is important to check your child’s school uniform and make sure that it fits your child correctly and that it is in good repair and clean.

Please review the list below, and make adjustments if necessary:

  • Trousers that are too long cannot be rolled up at the hem. 

  • Trousers must be turned up and sewn, to fit the child that is wearing them and the cotton used must be grey.

  • Holes in the knee of the trouser must either be repaired to a good standard of repair, or a new pair purchased.

  • Shirt pockets must be stitched back into place with light blue cotton if they come undone.

  • Buttons must be sewn back on if they come off.

  • Shoelaces must be the correct size for your child’s shoe, and in good repair, so that your child can tie his/her shoelaces if necessary. Extra long shoelaces that become undone are very dangerous and represent a hazard. Equally short snapped laces that cannot be tied cause sloppy ill-fitting shoes.

  • Black lace-up school shoes.

  • Ties must be tied correctly with top button closed.

  • Accessories such as a red hair tie, red scrunchie, red ribbon or plain red clips are to be worn for school. 

  • Plain gold or silver stud or sleeper earring, chain with a (medal or cross) religious significance and a watch can be worn.

  • Skirts and dresses should be hemmed no higher than knee length

  • The practice of a two-week season changeover will continue for Terms 2 and 4.  Alterations to uniforms can be arranged through the uniform shop.
