PARENTS & COMMUNITY - Uniforms

The Northcliffe School Community, through the School Council, believes the wearing of a school uniform by students contributes to a positive school image and establishes a sense of community identity. Students develop a sense of unity and pride in their school as well as providing equality and uniformity, which can be detracted from when free choice of dress is permitted.

It is acknowledged that students who wear dark bottoms and red, white or black tops are in fact complying with the intent of this policy.

Uniforms can be purchased through Manjimup Monograms, Phone: (08) 9771-2371
