As a P&C committee we are happy to operate a uniform shop for the use of all parents in purchasing school uniforms. It is staffed by parent volunteers whose aim is to assist parents. Our opening hours are Tuesday mornings 8:15 AM to 9 AM and Thursday mornings 8:45 AM to 9:15 AM. In the uniform shop we sell brand-new uniforms with the school logo on them the majority of which are only available in even sizes such as 2, 4, 6 etc. Price lists are available in the front office, at the uniform shop or by clicking the link below. We also sell a range of laundered Second hand uniforms for $2.00 each. We look forward to serving you and hope that if you feel comfortable that you will come and join us. All volunteers are welcome.
