3.4 In accordance with the ACT Cancer Council policy and our school’s Sun Smart Policy, a Sun Smart hat is necessary. The Cancer Council recommends broad brimmed (minimum brim of 5cm), bucket styled and legionnaire hats.
3.5 Suitable shoes have an enclosed toe and heel, including well-formed sneakers, leather shoes and boots. Well-fitting shoes are important as ill-fitting shoes can have negative long term effects on children’s feet. Thongs, clogs (such as Crocs) and open-backed sandals can result in injuries and are therefore discouraged.
3.6 The school has a tradition of Year 6 children wearing a commemorative top and/or jumper.
3.7 All clothing should be clearly labelled with the child’s name.
3.8 School staff encourage children to be responsible for the care of their school clothing. This forms part of aspects of curriculum relating to the Early Years Learning Framework (Preschool) and personal and social capabilities within the Australian curriculum (Kindergarten-Year 6).
