Uniform Policy

The aim at the Bairnsdale Christian Community School is to have the students present themselves in an accepting and pleasing manner. Complete correct uniform will be expected to be worn at all times whilst attending school. This standard will be expected whilst travelling to and from school or while at any event outside the school where the school is being represented.

Correct Uniform

Uniform is to be in good repair and of neat appearance. If for any reason students cannot comply with uniform requirements an explanatory note from the parent/guardian must be provided and given to their teacher. This applies to basic school uniform and PE uniform.

Marking

All articles of clothing are to be clearly identified with the student’s name.

Uniform Changeover Times

  • First and fourth term: summer uniform
  • Second and third term: winter uniform

School hats only to be used and must be worn 1st and 4th term and other times at the discretion of the teacher.

Availability of Uniform

New uniforms are available through the school uniform shop which operates every week at times suitable to most parents (please check with school office). Most articles are available only through the School. Socks and girls tights are not available at the uniform shop. It is wise to try clothes on, especially pants and skirts. Payment for all orders must be made on collection.
