Uniform Brochure 7.jpg

Our sense of belonging to a community begins with pride in our self and our uniform.

Our uniform policy was designed in consultation with families in our community.

We have produced a four-page Uniform Brochure for families as a handy reference. Please click here to view and download our Uniform Brochure.

We chose the Australian owned company Perm-A-Pleat Schoolwear with its ethical manufacturing commitment to design our new contemporary uniform called Smart Play.

What is Smart Play?  It is a uniform concept designed to be a practical, comfortable unisex uniform for active students. It consolidates and reduces the number of items and allows children to focus on learning and play.

 

School uniforms are ordered online with the option for home delivery or complimentary delivery to the Front Office at McAuley Community School.

The Collection

Mix & Match

Items are interchangeable so children can wear their long sleeve polo shirt with their shorts on a cool day.

Or choose to wear their tracksuit pants with short sleeve polo short for comfort.

Shoes & Socks

The school socks ($8.50 a pair) are to be purchased through the online uniform store and are a cushioned foot sport sock in navy blue with a sky blue trim at the top.

There is a requirement to wear predominantly white sport shoes with synthetic or leather upper, and white laces. No canvas please.

Shoes can be purchased from any shoe store of your choice. We recommend The Athlete’s Foot at Marion to supply families with a professional shoe fitting service for a choice of Asics, Ascent and New Balance that meet our uniform policy. Please refer to the Sports Shoe Guide prepared by The Athlete's Foot as a handy visual reference. 

Mention you are from our school and they will show you a choice of white shoes, available in lace or velcro and the option of mesh or a synthetic leather upper.  A number of styles are orthotic and width friendly to suit growing feet.

We appreciate your cooperation in adhering to this important aspect of the uniform policy.

As part of their School Rewards Program, The Athlete’s Foot donates $5 to our school with each shoe purchase.

Accessories

The wide brim bucket hat ($18), with adjustable toggle, offers maximum sun protection. 

Navy or yellow are the colours of choice for hair elastics, ribbons, scrunchies, bows or headbands.  Hair is to be neat and away from the face.  Shoulder length hair is to be tied back please.

Did you know your child’s new school backpack bag ($56) is made from 100% recycled PET bottles?  21 x 500ml bottles in fact.  Perm-A-Pleat Schoolwear have introduced the new eco-textile, Duralon.

With strength and durability in mind, it also delivers in so many other areas: free from any harmful contaminants like PVC, 73% stronger than nylon, lightweight, water resistant and breathable which reduces the effects of moisture and odour on the inside of the bag.

How to decide sizes and which jacket, if any?

The collection is available to view and try on in the McAuley front office from 8:30am to 4pm each weekday.

You can choose home delivery or school pick-up for your child's school uniform.

Home delivery costs $12 flat rate and delivery time is dependent on the quantity of uniform ordered.  Orders are shipped via air or road and can be expected within 1-5 days of placing your order. 

School pick-up is available as an ongoing complimentary service. Please order by Sunday lunchtime for delivery to the school office one week later. Teresa Ragless will email you once your order has arrived at school and is ready for collection.
