Uniform shop

Mt Gravatt East State School uniform shop is run by the school's P & C Association.

The Uniform shop hours are Wednesday 3pm-3.30pm and Friday 8.15am-9.15am. This is a temporary measure until we find someone that would like to volunteer to run the uniform shop permanently one morning a week. If you are interested in this role please contact us, we would love to have a chat.

The shop is open by appointment all other times. 

If you have purchased uniforms through the online ordering system orders can be collected
from the Uniform Shop during normal trading hours or if your child attends School Age Care the order can be delivered to School Age Care for collection.

MT GRAVATT EAST STATE SCHOOL DRESS CODE

 

Mt Gravatt East State School Student Dress Code provides a uniform that aims to contribute to a safe and supportive teaching and learning environment through:

 
  • ready identification of students and non-students at our school
  • fostering a sense of belonging
  • developing mutual respect among students by minimizing visible evidence of economic or social differences.
  • reflecting the school community standards and are consistent with occupational health and safety and anti-discrimination legislation
 

 

 

Students are expected to wear the uniform whilst

 
  • attending or representing their school 
  • traveling to and from school; and

  • participating in school activities out of school hours 

 

As we cater for all student’s individual needs there may be times when alternative arrangements may need to be made.  Parents are required to send a written request advising the Principal of the circumstances. 

 

UNIFORM

 

DRESS AND SCHOOL UNIFORM (School colours are green, gold and blue.)

 

The school has a uniform.  The wearing of this uniform is compulsory, and helps to develop of a good tone at the school, makes selection of clothes easy for parents and ensures the standard of dress is suitable for school.

The school requires children to participate in many activities and at all times dress must be comfortable and modest.  The school uniform meets these requirements and is necessary to identify students outside the school situation and is a compulsory part of our risk management strategy.

The school is not the place for wearing of the latest fashion in casual and beach wear.  Items such as tank tops, singlets, halter tops and athletic shorts without a covering skirt for girls are examples of unsuitable school dress.  Save your child, and yourself, the embarrassment of being told your child's dress is not suitable by dressing them in uniform.

Stress is placed on the wearing of hats and proper black lace up (or velcro fastened) shoes The school has a “no hat, no play” rule.  Thongs and similar slip-on shoes are not suitable for school wear.
