School uniform is compulsory to all students from Years 7-11 when attending school, representing the school, travelling to and from school, or when participating in a school-organised event outside normal school hours.
We expect all parents, carers and staff to support the view that uniform helps to create an orderly atmosphere which is conducive to learning and reflects a positive image in the community.
