Our pupils are encouraged to take pride in their appearance and grooming at all times and are expected to look after their own gear and clothing. It is helpful if pupils’ clothing and belongings are clearly named so that found property can be returned to its owner.

Jewellery, valuables and toys are not encouraged at school and the school will take no responsibility for items brought to school and mislaid. If special items are required for a particular study, a newsletter providing information will be sent home by the class teacher.

Sun Hats

Sun Hats are a compulsory part of our school uniform.  There is a choice of a wide brimmed navy hat or a navy bucket had.  They are to be worn in Terms 1 and 4.  Please ensure that they are clearly named

Lost Property

As the seasons change, clothing is often lost or misplaced.  It is vital that all clothing is named so that it can be returned promptly to its owner.  This is especially important during swimming season and includes towels and other swimming items.  Unclaimed lost property is kept near the school office and is regularly displayed for children to identify and collect.  At the end of each term unclaimed lost property is removed permanently.

Stationery

The school office sells complete stationery packs for new entrant students starting school for the first time. Stationery requirement lists are available from the office for all other students so that parents can purchase books at retail outlets.  Click on the link below to see stationery for your child.
