Correct Wearing of the Uniform

We believe all children should take pride in their appearance and in this regard we ask for:-

  • Clean, polished shoes.
  • Long socks should be worn up, garters may be necessary.
  • Shirts tucked in.
  • Singlets and vests not showing at neck lines.
  • Hair fastened back with appropriate clips/bands, we sell these in school colours.
  • Jerseys to be worn properly or taken off, not tied around waists or draped over shoulders.
  • No make-up or jewellery apart from watches.

Please Name Clothing

Please clearly mark all children's clothing as often items go missing. If it is marked, then we are able to return it to the correct owner.

Girls Winter Uniform

The winter uniform has been designed with the ability to resize, and most girls only require one winter uniform for their six years at Mellons Bay. Each year they should be dry cleaned only and the hem let down to provide longevity.

There is a made to measure service available at the same cost as the uniform shop dresses if none are suitable. Please see the uniform shop for contact details and ordering. This usually takes two appointments with the dressmaker.  The dressmaker will charge approximately $25 for alterations. Tears in pleats can also be replaced or repaired.

The sports uniform is worn by students from year 3 through to year 6.



Stockists of Shoe Schools

Winter shoes must be totally black with black soles, there should be no coloured soles, flashes of colour or decals.  Shoes need to be fit for purpose and not fashion shoes.  

The preferred requirement is a black leather shoe with a black sole, not a sports shoe.

Second Hand Uniform

The school office is happy to receive donations of second hand uniforms.  They will purchase second hand uniforms that are in excellent condition.  Clothes that are stained, worn thin or poorly repaired cannot be accepted.  We are unable to accept second hand shoes, socks, hair accessories or hats.  Second hand winter dresses need to have been dry cleaned with the dry cleaning label still attached.  

Second hand uniform sales will happen periodically through the year.  Dates will be advertised in the Friday Flier, school website and the newsletter.


Any questions please contact the school office on 09 534 4363.
