Dunsborough Primary Dress Code Policy

The Dunsborough Primary School Council has established a dress code for all primary students attending the school.

The School Council believes a school dress code:

  • Fosters and enhances the public image of the school;
  • Assists in building school and team spirit;
  • Ensures students are safely and appropriately dressed for specific school activities;
  • Encourages equity among students, avoiding competitive dressing and its associated financial burden.



Students should ensure they take appropriate protection from the sun when outdoors, ie.hat and sunscreen; the school has a policy of “No Hat No Play in the Sun” during Terms 1 and 4.

Availability of Dress Code Items

  • School uniforms and faction shirts are available from the P&C Uniform shop (open Tues & Thurs 8.30 –9am.). The P&C shop is staffed by volunteers and provided as a service to the school community. Plain items in the designated school colours may also be purchased from any clothing or department store.
  • Second-hand school clothes are also available in the Uniform Shop at a nominal price, size availability varies.
  • Students whose families may experience financial difficulties regarding the purchase of a Uniform should contact the Principal to discuss the situation.

Modifications to the Dress Code

Students, who for religious or health reasons, may wish to modify the school dress code are required to make an appointment with the Principal. Staff will be informed of any student granted a modification to the dress code.
Students not following the dress code will receive:

  • counselling from the Principal on the benefits of the dress code;
  • assistance/support in obtaining suitable clothing and, if necessary,
  • a pass for an agreed length of time for dress modification.

Students not following the dress code may be denied the opportunity to represent their school at official school activities, which include choir, sporting and social events.
