The wearing of a school uniform at St John’s is compulsory. Sports uniform and regular day uniforms are worn on designated days as indicated through class or school newsletters.
The uniform, including socks, is only available through the school’s uniform shop. Good quality pre-loved uniforms are acceptable and are also available through the uniform shop.
By wearing a uniform, students are professional in presentation and gain pride as well as respect in self and school. The uniform gives clear identification of the school and its students. If wearing the uniform out of school hours, students are to view themselves as ambassadors of the school. It is important that the uniform is worn correctly and students behave in a manner that befits a student of St John’s Lutheran Primary School.
