Physical activities are a daily part of school and your child’s ability to participate is increased when he/she is wearing shorts or tracksuit pants and suitable footwear. School uniform provides many choices. Our school uniform is available for purchase from Interknit, 1004 Humffray street South Mount Pleasant. There are second-hand uniforms for sale at the school office. Full school uniform must be worn on excursions.
All children must wear hats when they are outside in Terms One and Four. Children who do not have a hat at school must remain under one of the several shaded areas near the buildings. During winter it is advisable that your child brings a coat every day. Unless it is raining, in which case, children remain inside under teacher supervision. Children will be outside at recess and lunch times. As you may already be aware, children take off their shoes when they are inside the main building but are permitted to wear shoes in the Early Learning Centre. Please ensure that all footwear – including elastic sided boots – is named.
We are constantly amazed by the quantity and quality of unclaimed “lost” clothing in the school. All shorts, t-shirts, windcheaters, jumpers, hats, coats and shoes should be named.
There are large plastic bins in the Early Learning Centre and in the corridor outside the Art room. Please check these if you have lost any items.
Any unnamed items left at the end of each term are washed and placed in our secondhand uniform supply or sent to the Salvation Army.
Appropriate enclosed footwear for active play – NO thongs, high heels, “Ugg” boots or “Crocs”.
Jewellery is not to be worn at School. Exemption: earrings – only small studs or sleepers and/or a wrist watch can be worn.
