Our School - Uniform Policy and Dress Code

All students are required to wear the complete official St Thomas the Apostle Primary School uniform as it helps develop a sense of belonging, self-respect and a positive attitude to the school community. Therefore, it is not only important that the official school uniform is worn, but also that it is worn with pride.

Uniform Tips
Please label your child’s name clearly on hats, jumpers, jackets and tracksuit pants, and check the label every term. 

The white shirts can be bleached as they are completely white. Fold the jumper at the end of each day and only wash if absolutely necessary, no more than four times a year. Try brushing the jumper to clean rather than wash. Follow the washing instructions carefully.
