Uniform


Why do students at Oaks Park wear a uniform?

Students wear uniform at Oaks Park High School because:

  • it makes children feel equal to their peers in terms of appearance;
  • it is practical and smart;
  • it promotes a sense of pride in the school;
  • it reinforces a sense of belonging to our school community;  
  • it identifies the children with the school;

 

All items of uniform should be named. The School cannot accept any liability for loss or damage to clothing or equipment incurred on the school premises.

 

Students travel to and from school in full school uniform.

Students should attend all school events in full school uniform.

This includes and is not limed to parents evenings, parent/teacher meetings, open evenings etc.
