Last week I sent home a survey for parents about some possible options for school uniforms for next year. Part of the reason for this change is under “United in Our Pursuit of Excellence in our AIP, Junior Secondary in 2013. We are expected to develop a separate identity for our Yr8/9 children and one of the suggested strategies we have adopted is a easily identifiable school uniform. One of the reasons for Gold as the major colour for the lower end of the school (Prep) and upper end (8/9/10) is that there would be a very distinct separation of the three different groups of children.
What can you do to help at home? We do need to make a decision about the school uniform as a school and so we do need parent, staff and student input. As much as there were samples listed on the survey, there was also options of making other comments or putting other ideas forward (keeping in mind our school colours are green & gold). Please have your say about an identity of our junior secondary children?
