The School Council has decided on a dress code for all students attending school believing it will;
- foster and enhance the public image of the school;
- assist in building school and team spirit;
- ensure students are safely dressed for attending specific school activities;
- encourage equality among students;
- prepare students for high school and the demands of the society.
- Acceptance of enrolment assumes that parent/guardian and student have agreed to conform to this code.
- Exemption/modification to the code for individuals will be considered for official religious or diagnosed health reasons. Parents need to make an appointment with the Principal to gain agreement prior to carrying out modification/exemption.
- Students should ensure that they take appropriate precautions for protection against the sun at all times.
- Students are expected to wear school dress code to school each day unless provided with an exemption.
