Uniform policy

 
Our School community fully supports the wearing of school uniform. The uniform is endorsed by the school’s Parents and Citizens Association and through State Legislation (EGPA 2006).
 
 
 
A smart school uniform helps in achieving the School’s identity, cohesion, tone, pride and spirit. Wearing of a school uniform is also an important safety measure.
 
 
 
l  Shoes are to be BLACK leather or leather substitute (and if lace, these must also be black), fully enclosed and of low cut design (not boot). They may only be used for physical activity if appropriate for such use.
 
l  Plain white socks are worn with both day and sports uniform and are to be clearly seen (a minimum of 3 cm visible above the back of the shoe). A crew sock is most suitable to meet this requirement.
 
l  Any t-shirts/singlets worn underneath the school shirt/blouse must be plain white in colour without any visible pictures or logos. Sleeves and hemlines should not be visible.
 
l  Shirt/blouse sleeves must not be rolled up.
 
l  The skirt is designed to be worn so that the hem is to the top of the kneecap.

Long hair should be tied back for practical subjects.
