Enrolment at St Augustine’s indicates that each child will abide strictly with our school dress code. This code ensures that each child will wear full and correct uniform to school each day. The only exceptions to this are when the school holds an “out of uniform” or “free dress” day. However, on these days all students must wear enclosed sandals or shoes, no thongs are allowed (for safety reasons). Parents are asked to strongly support this rule, making sure that shoes are of the correct type and kept clean, and that the uniform is clean and tidy. Please replace or repair hats when the cording around the edges comes off.
Our dress code states that all children are expected to wear their full regular uniform three days per week and their sports uniform on two days. Prep children will wear their regular uniform two days and their sports uniform three days .
We are very proud of our uniform and what it stands for in the community. Please ensure that uniforms are clean and tidy and the correct uniform is worn on the correct day.
Hair needs to be neat and tidy. No extreme cuts are permitted eg. mohawks, tails, bowl cuts, total head shaves etc. Such cuts impose social pressure and financial burdens on families. Hair below the collar needs to be tied back at all times. Fringes are to be no longer than eye brow level or pinned back to avoid vision interference. Colours, bleaches gel or additives are not part of the uniform. Blue, white or yellow ribbons/scrunchies/ties only.
Jewellery is to be left at home. Plain silver or gold studs or sleepers are permitted but would be best avoided on sport days. No other jewellery is to be worn (exceptions are medical tags or small religious emblems). Watches are permitted.
Students are not to wear make-up, coloured sunscreen or nail polish.
As we are a Sun Smart school, the school hat for Years Prep – 7 is broad brimmed and compulsory for all children. Please mark clearly. Younger children find an elastic chin strap helps to keep them on. School legionaire style cap also available.
School bags are available from the Uniform Shop. They are not compulsory, but they are encouraged.
All items of clothing should be clearly labelled - sewn in names appear to be best.
We try to send your children home in the same tidy manner in which you send them each morning. We urge you to encourage your children to wear their St Augustine’s uniform with pride and respect.
