Our School Uniform is a visual symbol, to the people in our community, of who we are and where we come from. When the school uniform is worn it reflects on the child personally, their family and St Patrick’s School in the manner it is worn. We encourage all students to wear the correct items of the uniform and ask parents to be supportive of this in the way children are dressed for school each day. A note is appreciated if there are specific reasons for uniforms not being complete.
The school UNIFORM SHOP operates from the Tuckshop. All school needs are available as well as some second-hand items. The Uniform Shop is open each Tuesday from 8.00am - 9.30am
Variations to these times are advertised in the school newsletter.
Hair should be neat and tidy and its natural colour. No layered, ridged or undercut styles are acceptable. It should be free from rinses, streaks and tints.
For Girls: Hair below the collar is to be tied back at all times. Hair ornaments are not part of the uniform and should not be worn. Girls to wear correct Blue Hair Ribbons.
For Boys: Hair is to be above the ear lobes and off the collar and, when combed forward, it must be out of the eyes.
Although the above does not specifically state all styles that are not acceptable, the word 'extreme' is the operative word. Styles that draw attention to the individual and are significantly different are not acceptable. The final decision on acceptability is at the discretion of the Principal.
The wearing of jewellery is discouraged at school because it can cause distraction, excessive jewellery detracts from the appearance of our uniform and expensive items can be lost or broken at school. As well as a uniform issue, the wearing of jewellery is also a safety issue. For the benefit of all students, the following guidelines are required regarding the wearing of jewellery.
Please note that exceptions will be made in special circumstances such as “medical alert” bracelets and so on. These exceptions will occur after consultation between parents and the Principal.
