Our Compulsory Uniform

It has been agreed by the school community through the P&C Association that all students must wear the school uniform.

Wearing the school uniform gives a feeling of belonging to our school, promotes school pride, establishes a standard of dress that addresses sun safety issues and is affordable. School uniforms also help identify unwelcome visitors to our school. The school has strict uniform requirements which need to be honoured. If students are out of uniform or do not comply with this policy, parents will be called to address the situation.

School shirts, shorts, girls' dresses, hats and white socks can be purchased from local stores:
