Parents are required to sign the School’s Dress Code, which is supported by Governing Council, parent groups and staff. This code is based on DECD guidelines and states that all children are required to wear school dress code unless parents exempt their child (see below). The school colours are sky blue, navy blue and white. Children are expected to wear clothes in these colours at all times and must wear an appropriately coloured wide brimmed or legionnaire hat. These hats, recommended by the Anti-Cancer Foundation, are available at the Uniform Shop. Comfortable well fitting shoes or sandals are to be worn however thongs are not permitted. Uniform options

School clothing is available from the Uniform Shop in the Wirra Building. The Uniform shop opens twice a week and information on opening times is published in the Front Office and on the price list and order forms are included in the enrolment packs.

Non-acceptable items include jeans, thongs, singlet tops, baseball caps, clothing with commercialised logos and any clothing considered a fashion item. The wearing of jewellery is limited to ear studs / sleepers and chains and religious jewellery (worn beneath clothing if possible).
