South Bunbury Primary School Dress Code


Benefits of a school dress code for students:

  • assists in building school and team spirit
  • fosters and enhances the public image of the school
  • ensures students are safely dressed for specific school activities
  • encourages equity amongst students
  • assists in identifying our students for requirements of duty of care, especially for out of school activities.
  • considers religious and cultural requirements
  • includes gender neutral options
  • assists students to learn the importance of appropriate presentation


The South Bunbury Primary School uniform consists of:

  • SBPS gold and green short sleeve polo shirt with school logo or plain gold polo shirt
  • SBPS long sleeve polo shirt with school logo
  • SBPS logo specialist uniform items (Leavers’ shirts, Ripper Skippers jackets, etc.)
  • Bottle green gingham school dress
  • Black basketball shorts (plain or with school logo) to the mid thigh
  • Black skorts
  • Black tracksuit pants (plain or with school logo)
  • Black jazz pants (leggings or pants) no prominent logo
  • SBPS green zip jacket with school logo
  • Plain dark green fleece jacket or jumper
  • SBPS faction polo shirts with school logo for P.E. days or sports events


For extra warmth in winter, students may wear:

  • Black leggings or tights under skorts or dresses
  • Plain long sleeve shirts in black, bottle green or gold under school polo shirts


Headwear and Jewellery:

  • Black hat (broad-brimmed or bucket style) to be worn as indicated in the Cancer Council’s Sun Safe Schools Recommendations. Hats are optional between Week 5, Term 2 and Week 5, Term 3, when the UV index is generally low (1-2)
  • Hair accessories in the school uniform colours of bottle green, gold and black are encouraged, especially when representing the school at events and excursions
  • Hair accessories must not prevent a student from wearing a sun-safe hat
  • All students must tie back hair that is longer than shoulder-length
  • Students may wear a watch, medic-alert bracelet/necklace and sleeper or stud earrings
  • Students who wear a smartwatch (e.g. Spacetalk or Moochies) must set the watch to class mode while at school. Using the watch during school hours for text messages, games, phone calls or photos is in breach of the Department of Education Mobile Phone Policy (2020). Such breaches will result in the watch being stored in the teacher or office mobile phone storage location until the end of the day and parents notified of the breach.

  • Enclosed shoes, including joggers with either laces or Velcro
  • Well-fitting sandals with an ankle strap

Modifications to the Dress Code

Students who, for religious or health reasons, may wish to modify the school dress code are required to make an appointment with the principal. Staff will be informed of any student granted a modification to the dress code.

Students not following the dress code will be:

  • given a uniform notification on Seesaw to inform parents
  • offered assistance and support in obtaining suitable clothing
  • offered a negotiated time period for the student to obtain the school uniform
