General Information

Uniform Guidelines

Wearing the school uniform correctly is an indicator of the pride the St Mark's students have in their school, and children are expected to wear the full school uniform at all times. The Sports uniform is only worn on the child's class sports day each week. Sports shoes are not part of the general school uniform and are only to be worn on sports days. The regular school uniform must be worn at all other times. No other styles or colours are permitted without prior arrangement with the Principal.

The school hat as it is a compulsory part of the school uniform. Our school rule is "No Hat, No Play".

Parents are asked to co-operate in ensuring that boys and girls have appropriate hairstyles for school. Girls with long hair must keep it tied back. Hair ribbons, headbands, scrunchies, clips etc. must match the uniform colours. Boys are expected to maintain their hair in a healthy manner that is well-kept, tidy and appropriate to the wearing of school uniform.

The only jewellery permitted with the uniform is a watch and a pair of sleepers or studs. Please note that children with pierced ears are expected to wear earrings in both ears.

It is important to permanently label all your child’s clothes and other school equipment. We encourage parents not to allow children to bring valuables to school, and no responsibility will be taken for lost or damaged goods.

In 2014 a new school uniform was introduced at St Mark's which is being phased in over a 2 year period for existing students. The uniform is available online via the new P&F website - www.mystmarks.com.au
