Uniform Dress Code

A School uniform provides standardisation in respect of appearance and equality. It identifies the children as pupils of St Mary’s School.

Wearing a uniform helps develop pride in appearance, school identity, and allows the learning process to proceed without reference to undue fashion consciousness.
The following clarifies the expectation with regards to uniform.

Appearance and Standard of Dress

Pupils are expected to be in correct uniform during school hours, to and from school. 

Students are also expected to keep themselves and their clothing clean and tidy, and to present a good image of themselves, to the community.

Under garments should not be visible.

While there is a set summer (Terms 1 and 4) and winter (Terms 2 and 3) uniform there is flexibility in the wearing of each uniform depending upon weather conditions. This will be at the discretion of the Principal.

Hair

Hair must be clean, tidy and needs to be safety restrained at all times.

Hair style should be reasonable, simple and natural in colour. Extremes of style or colour are discouraged and the Principal shall be the final judge of what is allowed.

Jewellery

Small stud type earrings may be worn in the earlobes (no rings or bracelets)

No visible body piercing is permitted.

Only badges issued or approved by the school may be worn.

A watch is the only other item of jewellery allowed to be visible.

Makeup

Makeup and coloured nail polish is not permitted.

Safety Vests

Students are issued with safety vests and are to wear their safety vest to and from school, on walks during school hours, and it is school policy that students wear safety vests when biking to and from school.

Sunhat Policy

School policy states all pupils and staff are required to wear a royal blue sunhat (Bucket or Aussie style) during terms 

1 and 4 while at School. These can be purchased from Postie Plus or The Warehouse. 

School Blues

Blues are awarded for high level of achievement. They are worn under the monogram on their jersey.

It is acknowledged by the Board of Trustees that from time to time items of uniform will not be able to be worn, for reasons of repair etc.  This is understood but a note explaining the reasons for this happening and the time frame is required.
