St Joseph's Wandal Uniform




The School uniform is a symbol of our community and is compulsory for all students from Prep to Year 6. Our students wear their uniform with pride, reflecting their pride in their school and the wider community. For this reason, the correct school uniform must be worn neatly at all times. Children not wearing the correct uniform are required to present a note to their teacher from their parents.

This service exists to serve the school community through the purchase and sale of secondhand items. Parents wishing to sell school uniforms (in good condition) should send them to the school office in a clearly marked plastic bag with their family name and a (reasonable price) attached. These will then be passed on to the secondhand stall once the details have been recorded. Information regarding the times and dates will be advertised in the school newsletter.

Wearable Technology

Our school already has guidelines in place around the use of devices such as phones, however this is a constantly changing environment. The school board met to discuss the school’s position on wearable technology (for example smart watches). A number of concerns were discussed, including issues stemming from privacy breaches, as well as the distraction they pose to students in the learning environment. Therefore, we have decided that wearable technology devices are not appropriate for students at St Joseph’s Wandal to wear. If students present at school wearing with these devices, they will be confiscated and returned home at the end of the school day.

We thank you for your cooperation. As always, if you have any queries, please do not hesitate to ask.
