School Uniform

The school uniform is compulsory for students in Years 1-6. All items other than shoes are available through the school uniform shop.

Given that a ‘no hat, no play’ policy is implemented, a school hat or cap is compulsory for all outdoor activities.

Uniform Shop

The aim of the Uniform Shop is to provide items of school uniform at reasonable cost to families. It is run by volunteers.

The Uniform Shop is located in the undercover area and is open from 8.30am to 9am on Tuesday mornings. Other opening times will be advertised in the school newsletter.

Should you wish to order and cannot attend the shop at the opening time, please email uniformshop@stcolumbassp.wa.edu.au and include your name, phone number and a clear description of your requirements. These orders will be left at the office the following Tuesday for collection and payment.

Second hand uniforms, in reasonable condition, are always needed. Donations are most welcome.
