• Dress Codes

    Dress Code

    After community consultation and an open vote, the Caladenia Primary School Board has established a change in the Dress Code for all students attending the school. In so doing, the Board represents the wishes of the community of Caladenia. School is a place of learning and has rules and policies which are designed for the benefit and overall good of the children in our care, the staff of the school implement this policy on the behalf of the overall school community. All parents and students are expected to observe the wishes of its community and its policies.

    We believe that a dress code:

    • Supports the wishes of the majority in the school community.
    • Fosters and enhances public image
    • Assists in building school and team spirit
    • Ensures that students are safely dressed for specific school activities
    • Encourages equity among the students and
    • Prepares students for work, as many places have dress and safety codes

    The Caladenia Primary School uniform is mandatory for all children at the School to wear. School uniforms are available through the Uniform Shop. There will be no variations accepted to the uniform as stated herein. Please refer to the Sanctions in this Policy for non-compliance of Uniform.
