Uniforms

School Uniform

The School Council of Westminster Junior Primary School has established a dress code and your child must wear the school uniform every day.

The School Council believes a school dress code:

  • Fosters and enhances the public image of the school;
  • Assists in building school and team spirit;
  • Ensures students are safely dressed for specific school activities;
  • Encourages equity among students; and
  • Identifies students in the school.

School colours are royal blue and gold:

  • Top is a yellow collared shirt;
  • Shorts/pants royal blue; and
  • Appropriate footwear.

The school uniform is purchased at the uniform shop located at the school.

The dress code may be modified for students for religious or health reasons. Please make an appointment with the principal if this is required.

In accordance with Department of Education policy, children cannot wear denim to school.

Please ensure all articles of clothing are clearly marked with your child’s name.

General appearance

Hair

Children who have long hair are asked to maintain its cleanliness and keep it tied back so that sight is not impeded and general tidiness is maintained.

Personal cleanliness

Standards of personal cleanliness are regarded as the pupil’s own responsibility and children are asked to think of the comfort and wellbeing of others during their time at school.

Jewellery

Your child should not wear jewellery (especially dangling earrings) or nail polish and makeup to school. This is unnecessary and jewellery can be dangerous at times, particularly during daily physical education. Sleepers are permissible. As with other valuables the school can take no responsibility for lost items. Children will be asked to remove any unnecessary jewellery.

“No hat, no play in the sun” policy

In the interests of your child’s health and well-being, our whole school has a “no hat, no play in the sun” policy which operates for the entire school year. Please ensure your child brings a named bucket hat (broad brimmed) to school every day.

Sunscreen

During warmer months, please ensure your child has sunscreen applied before they come to school.
