The Holy Family Merewether Beach Community strives to develop an atmosphere of acceptance, forgiveness and reconciliation

General Appearance and School Uniform

GENERAL APPEARANCE

The general appearance of a child is an outward sign to others of the pride and respect one has in oneself. We aim to develop in the children an understanding of this fact. We encourage the children to be neatly groomed - this includes dressing neatly, having their hair clean and combed, shoes polished etc.

For safety reasons, the children are not permitted to wear jewellery, such as bracelets, necklaces, to school.

PROCEDURE FOR ORDERING THE UNIFORM

The standard ordering procedures are as follows:

1.     Fill out an order form for the required item/s.  Order forms are available from the school office and in the document section of this website.  You can either pick one up from the office or contact Mrs Dobinson by phone or email at admin@merewetherbeach.catholic.edu.au and one will be forwarded to you.

2.     Complete an order form and attach payment.  Either drop it in to the office or put it in an envelope in your child's folder to be given to their teacher. Orders can also be made via the QKR App.

3.     Orders can be collected on the following Tuesday from the school office (anytime from 9.30am) or a member of the uniform committee will deliver the order to your child.

4.     If an incorrect size is purchased, leave the tag on and return it to the school with instructions for the correct size.
