Uniform

 

Wishart State School has an attractive and economical school uniform.  All parents are to encourage their children to wear the uniform each day.  We believe that wearing a uniform helps develop a sense of belonging, of school pride and self-esteem.  Children must wear a “fully brimmed” sun-safe hat; baseball style caps are not to be worn.

Our uniform helps identify our children so that by their high standard of behaviour, they can bring credit to their school.  If for some reason children are not able to wear their uniform for a short period of time they should be dressed in neat, clean, suitable clothing, and bring a note from their parent/caregiver to explain the reason.  Beach-wear, tank tops, bare shoulders, midriffs and advertising t-shirts are not acceptable school wear. 
No jewellery other than a watch (which must be removed for swimming lessons), ‘sleepers’ or ‘studs’ for ears, and religious medallions are to be worn to school.

Interschool Sporting Fixtures
Students chosen to represent the school in Interschool Sport are required to wear the full school uniform each Friday. Anything other than this uniform will see your child stood down from Interschool Sport that day. 
Other Representative Occasions
For other occasions where your child may represent our school, they will be required to wear the uniform or special clothing as directed by the school.  All students who are part of our Instrumental and Choral programs will be required to wear the designated uniform for performances.  Failure to do so may result in a child not being able to perform on that day.
Free Dress Days
From time to time we run Free Dress days at school. On these days children are to wear sun safe and appropriate clothing for the school setting. Closed in shoes must be worn and children must have a sun safe hat. Children pay a gold coin fee to participate.
