Paraburdoo Primary School strongly encourages our students to wear our appropriate school uniform at all times. Wearing our school uniform serves a number of purposes.
School morale and tone can be lifted through the wearing of a uniform
A school uniform enhances the child’s sense of belonging to their school group. It also encourages a sense of pride in their individual appearance and as a member of the school community
A school uniform is a more economically viable means of providing appropriate dress standards
Wearing our school uniform removes the competition to wear designer and other fad clothing
A school uniform does not impose upon each child’s individuality but reflects an attitude of respect and conformity to community standards
For children on excursions, our school uniform can easily identify our students which is a safety factor for supervision.
The Paraburdoo Primary School Uniform consists of a school polo shirt with black shorts, skirt or pants (bike shorts are not appropriate). Hats are to be black bucket style or wide brim. School jackets are available for purchase each year, however any plain black jumper or jacket without a hood is acceptable.
For safety reasons, safe footwear is to be worn at all times. Thongs, for example, are not considered to be safe footwear.
Inappropriate items, such as jewellery, large earrings etc, that can present a safety hazard are also not allowed. Please ensure that all items belonging to a child are identified with the child’s name to avoid them becoming lost. For special occasions (eg excursions, sports carnivals etc.) children must be dressed appropriately .
Uniforms are available to purchase through the school office, Monday to Friday 7.30am - 3pm.
