Uniforms

When students wear a school uniform, they feel included in our school community.

Students, teachers, parents and carers, as well as members of our local community helped develop our school uniform to make sure it:

  • meets the requirements of occupational health and safety, anti-discrimination and equal opportunity legislation

  • includes items that are affordable, comfortable and made from easy-care and easy-wear fabrics

  • is appropriate for the full range of school activities

  • is suitable for all body shapes.

Coffee and chat

Coffee and chats are informal gatherings that take place twice each term on the Friday of Week 4 and Week 8 from 10:15am to 11:15am. Coffee and chats are an invitation for parents to share morning tea with the school principal and sometimes other staff members. 

Coffee and chats are a great way to find out about what is happening in classrooms and at the school. It's also an opportunity to ask questions and seek clarification. Coffee and chats are a lovely way to network with other parents and to get involved in conversations about curriculum and school projects. Some coffee and chats have important agendas attached others are simply informal opportunities to catch up.
