Uniform & Personal Presentation Policy
The St Vincent’s School uniform is a symbol of our school and helps our students develop a sense of belonging within our school community. The school uniform is an equaliser for all of our students. Wearing the uniform correctly and being well presented encourages a sense of pride in appearance and what the uniform represents, our school community. Through wearing the uniform correctly, students demonstrate a commitment towards our school community.
All parents and caregivers who enrol their child/ren at St Vincent’s School agree to uphold our Uniform and Personal Presentation Policy. As a Catholic School, there is a standard of dress to be maintained. This standard does not always agree with current or fashionable trends in the broader community or society in general. Parents and caregivers who enrol their child/ren at St Vincent’s School are responsible for ensuring their child/ren dress in a clean, well-fitting uniform with correct footwear and are well presented.
You may also order online and the uniform will be delivered to the office for your child to pick up the following day. Orders must be placed by Tuesday morning before 11:00am.
