School Uniform

 

Enrolment at St Thomas Aquinas indicates that each child will abide strictly with our school’s dress code. This code dictates 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” day for fundraising purposes. Parents are asked to strongly support this rule, making sure that shoes are of the correct type and kept clean.

Children are generally expected to wear their full school uniform three days per week and their sports uniform two days per week. This may be amended according to a particular year’s programming and timetabling needs for sport and gymnastics. The Physical Education program requires some sporting activity every day so older children should bring their gym shoes in their school bags and wear the correct shoes to and from school. At times children are asked to bring in football boots, mouth guards etc for sports teams. These should be kept in separate bags.

Jewellery

The school policy is that the only jewellery students are allowed to wear to school are watches, stud or sleeper  earrings to be worn in a maximum of 2 holes per earlobe. Wearing of other jewellery including rubber wrist bands and friendship bands can become a safety issue.

 

Coats/ Scarfs

Children are permitted to wear any coat or scarf in the colder months. We do not have a school specific coat or scarf. We ask that children only wear these outside and remove them once they are inside the school building.
