Message form the Principal

Dear Parents and Carers


Uniform is important - it unites us as a school, makes us all equal and we wear it with pride. From Term 1 2021 all children will need to meet the new school uniform requirements.


Among the changes documented below, please note the girls' winter skirt has been discontinued due to the low numbers worn at school and lack of sales. The new sports uniform and hat are now compulsory.


Our uniform provider, Nell Gray, is conducting fittings during Term 4 to ensure items are available for the start of the year. Please ensure you place your uniform orders next term - do not wait for January.


Thank you for your cooperation.


Kind regards

Allen McMahon

Principal
