 ·   promote equality among students 
·   prevent bullying arising from students wearing certain styles of clothing 
·   prepare our students for the world of work
·  foster the positive image of our school and students in the community 
·   ensure easy identification, security and management of students on out of school excursions 
·   make it easy for parents, students and staff to know what we expect students to wear to school 
 
We very happy with the support our students and parents and carers give our uniform. I have always been impressed by the way the students look and I take every opportunity to tell them.
I am very encouraged by the amount of our students choosing to wear ties for example.
