Uniform shop

Uniforms are available for purchase from the Tuckshop every day of the week between 8.30am and 2:00pm.  Volunteers are always welcome to assist with uniform sales, even for very occasional help.

School Uniforms

Atherton State School’s uniform policy is endorsed by the school’s P&C. It requires that all students wear an approved school uniform every day. A note from a parent is required when a student is not in correct or complete school uniform explaining why, and when this will be rectified. Atherton State School remains committed to providing a safe and inclusive environment for all students each day. We will consider individual circumstances and work with families to find a suitable alternative uniform item for cultural or medical reasons. Requests should be directed to The Principal via the school office. Students attending school dressed with incomplete or incorrect uniforms may receive a notification letter from the Principal to take home to be signed by a parent and returned to school.

Which uniform to wear when?

It is recommended that the school uniform should be worn for:
 
• All school days other than those timetabled for swimming or physical
education activities, inter-school and inter-house sports days.
• School photo days
• Public appearances, including visits to the school by official visitors
• School excursions, except when specifically advised otherwise by the teacher.
 
Children can safely and effectively participate in daily physical activities organised by classroom teachers wearing the school uniform and footwear.
 
The sports uniform should be worn on Fridays and during inter-house or inter-school sports days.

Uniform Supplies

The Uniform Shop is open every day of the week from 8:00am to 9:30am.
 
Once purchased please ensure all items of clothing are clearly labelled with the child’s first and last name. It also recommended that all other student belongings i.e. lunchboxes, drink bottles, pencil cases, school port, hat etc are clearly labelled with the student's first and last name.
 

School Hat

The maroon (yellow for Prep aged sudents) broad-brimmed school hat is to be worn at all times when students are out of doors, including:
 
• travelling to and from school, 
• during morning tea and lunch breaks,
• when running messages in the sun eg on the oval, 
• when away from school on excursions, and
• during sport or physical education activities.
 
The school hat is an integral part of the school uniform. Baseball caps or other hats without wide brims are unacceptable. We are a 'Sunsafe School' so the ‘NO HAT, NO PLAY’ rule applies to all students.
