Uniform and Student Dress Code
In State schools in South Australia the wearing of a uniform is a decision of the Governing Council. The Craigburn Primary School Governing Council supports and recommends that all students wear uniform. Our code is based on DECD guidelines.
Parents of Craigburn Primary School positively endorse the wearing of a school uniform / dress code.
A Dress Code provides a common ground for all parents and students, eliminates possible conflict over what to wear or buy and assists in the prevention of discrimination based on dress.
Elements of the Dress Code are also incorporated for reasons of safety (e.g. no dangling earrings) and respectability. The Dress Code is designed to provide some flexibility and appeal for our school, the students and their parents.
Students representing their school on excursions, in school photographs and at sporting events are expected to adopt the Dress Code.
It is preferred that all shirts, windcheaters etc. have the school logo on the upper left hand side. Iron-on logos can be purchased from the School Cash Office.
For reasons of respectability and to be Sun Smart, girls are not permitted to wear tops that show their midriff or stomach, or short shorts. Chunky shoes or ones with heels are not permitted.
Jeans are not part of the dress code for either boys or girls. Bike shorts and netball skirts are not part of our daily school uniform, however, bike shorts may be worn under a school dress/skirt. Basketball style mesh shorts are not part of our daily school uniform.
As we are a recognised Sun Smart School, all students are required to wear a Legionnaire or broad brimmed hat (Navy blue) at all times, during any outdoor activities and at recess and lunch time (except during the months of June, July and August).
Hair ties, scrunchies etc. are to be in school colours. Coloured hair spray is only to be worn on sports day or for special school events.
Make-up and nail polish are not to be worn to school.
Earrings can be worn – either one stud or one sleeper in each ear.
Multiple or dangling earrings are not permitted, for safety reasons.
One thin chain can be worn around the neck or wrist. Thick chunky ones with tags or large attachments are not permitted.
Watches are appropriate to wear.
Generic windcheaters, pants, shorts etc. can be obtained from Target, Big W, Kmart etc.
