MacKillop Catholic Primary School Uniforms

Uniforms

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.

 

To ensure the correct shade of blue is worn, school uniforms are to be purchased from Uniform Solutions.

School Hat


A MacKillop School Hat (in reasonable condition) must be worn correctly at all times. This hat is COMPULSORY and is available for purchase from Uniform Solutions. The MacKillop Hat is lined AND fully washable, non-shrink and UNCRUSHABLE. It is navy blue in colour and has the School Emblem on the front. The hat does not have a drawstring however, parents may add a drawstring (in the NAVY BLUE colour) at their own discretion. We strongly encourage you to bring your child’s newly purchased hat into the office so that your child’s name can be written inside the hat, to reduce the chance of it becoming lost.




Hair and Grooming


All hair accessories must be plain, minimalist and either navy blue, black, teal or white in colour. Large decorative hair pieces are NOT acceptable. For health and safety reasons, hair that is long enough to be tied back, should be worn in this manner (boys and girls). Haircuts must be neat and tidy in appearance and not falling into eyes, or around the face. Hair must not be dyed or coloured or worn in a style that is deemed to be inappropriate for primary school. Tracks, rats tails, mohawks and styles shorter than guage 2 are considered inappropriate for MacKillop students.

At MacKillop, we discourage the wearing of jewellery by students, for health and safety reasons. However, the following items are acceptable;

  • Earrings - one plain small stud or sleeper, per ear.
  • Ring - one signet ring, with no raised stones or settings.
  • Necklace - one simple chain with a small Christian symbol, worn inside the uniform.
  • Watch (no toy or novelty watches)

Winter Uniform


During winter, students may wear the MacKillop School pullover or cardigan (available at Uniform Solutions), or alternately, a plain, navy blue pullover or cardigan (no logos). Girls may also wear plain, navy blue tights under their uniform. Girls and boys are permitted to wear plain, navy blue tracksuit pants over their uniform (as this allows for later removal if the weather warms). Tracksuit pants are NOT to be worn under girls’ dresses, in place of tights.

Our MacKillop School Library Bag and Homework Folders are compulsory for all students and are available for purchase from the School Office at a cost of $17.00 each. Both articles are vinyl and waterproof to ensure maximum wear. They are navy blue in colour and have the School Logo on the front.

At MacKillop we offer parents the option of purchasing second hand uniforms. Our co-ordinator, Justine Harriott, is available on Monday and Friday after morning assembly or by previous arrangements.

For those parents wishing to donate uniforms to sell, they MUST BE the correct school uniform and in good condition, as otherwise we cannot sell the items.  We do not accept any footwear for sale.
