Adelaide West Special Education Centre

Uniform Policy

Background

In 2010 as part of the establishment of Adelaide West Special Education Centre, Student Representative Council (SRC) put forth the idea of a new school uniform. This suggestion was taken to Governing Council and the compulsory wearing of a school uniform was supported. Students voted on colours. The colours chosen were blue representing the sea, gold representing the sand and sun.

Uniforms would differentiate between the primary and secondary years. The result is a multi-purpose uniform that has continuity through all years of schooling.

 The wearing of the school uniform promotes pride and sense of belonging to the school community.

Change of Clothing

We understand that some students may require many changes during the day. On these occasions it would be acceptable to provide clothing in the school colours e.g. navy or sky blue polo tops or windcheaters, navy blue pants (these can be sourced by families at retail outlets). However it is preferable that students are always dressed in school uniform.
