Uniform shop

Opening times and location

 

The uniform shop at Northgate State School is administered by the Northgate Parents and Citizens Association on a volunteer basis.

It is open every Tuesday morning from 8am - 8:50 am and every Friday morning from 8.15am until 9am during the school term and is located at the rear of the school hall. 

Alternatively order forms can be submitted via email: nsspcuniforms@gmail.com along with internet bank transfer payment.  In such instances arrangements must be made to collect purchases.

Just a reminder that the Uniform Shop now has an EFTPOS/Credit Card facility.  Payments can also be made by cash or bank internet transfer.

 

Policy 

  

The P&C of Northgate State School supports a student dress code policy as it promotes the objectives of the Education (General Provisions) Act 2006, and in particular that it:

 
  • Promotes a safe environment for learning by enabling ready identification of students and non-students of the school.
  • Promotes an effective teaching and learning environment by eliminating the distraction of competition in dress and fashion at the school.
  • Promotes a supportive environment at the school by fostering a sense of belonging.
  • Fosters mutual respect among individuals at the school by minimising visible evidence of economic, class or social differences.
 

  

The Northgate State School P&C associations have endorsed this policy.

We are proud of our students and our school. Our children will develop this pride by the full time wearing of uniforms. All students are expected to wear the school uniform every day.

 
Northgate’s Formal uniform is encouraged 4 days per week, and our Sports uniform is to be worn on PE days and at sports events only.
 

Formal uniform is to be worn on all excursions unless specifically notified otherwise.

It is expected that all students will wear the blue school broad brimmed hat at all times during playtime and external activities including before and after school.

Please ensure your child’s uniform items are labelled with full name details. 


Parents’ cooperation in supporting this dress code policy is greatly appreciated.
