It is our policy that all students wear uniform when attending school, or when participating in a school-organised event outside normal school hours. Our uniform policy is based on the notion that school uniform:

  • promotes a sense of pride in the school
  • engenders a sense of community and belonging towards the school
  • is practical and smart
  • identifies the students with the school
  • is fair and makes students feel equal to their peers in terms of appearance and removes peer pressure to dress in ‘designer’ fashions
  • is regarded as suitable wear for school and good value for money by most parents/carers
  • can assist identification of strangers on school premises
  • is designed with health and safety in mind
