    • Long hair must be tied up for all children. 
    • Children must wear a waterproof coat to school for outdoor play.
    • To minimise the time required to change for PE, we do not advise children in Year 3 to Year 6 wear yellow and white gingham summer dresses on PE days. 
    • Ventilation in classrooms is important. Children may wear a green fleece with the school logo on top of their other school uniform in the classroom.
