It is the position of Governing Council that wearing a school uniform reflects highly on the school and its students. We are proud of our school and want to communicate this pride and sense of belonging. Parents and caregivers are expected to support the student’s wearing of the school uniform.
Uniform items (including shoes) should allow students to participate in a wide variety of activities, including physical activity and therefore need to be comfortable and practical and a suitable length– the student must be able to stand upright, with their arms to their side and the tips of their fingers touching the bottom of their shorts/skirt.
Callington Primary School is of SA SUNSAFE school and students are required to wear broad brim or Legionnaires style hats for sun protection when outside from September 1 to April 30 and additionally when the UV rating is 3 or above.
Baseball caps are NOT acceptable headware.
During hot weather students may prefer to remain inside during recess and lunch breaks.
