Uniform And Equipment

The Swan School has a uniform to embed our professional learning environment. Also, it helps to create an ‘even playing field’ amongst our students and reduces the risk of discrimination and bullying. Our school uniform is designed to be smart, practical, durable, and affordable. All of our uniform must be bought from our uniform supplier, Price and Buckland. 

All students must come to school in correct uniform and fully equipped. They will receive a detention if they do not meet our expectations. Spare equipment is available to buy from the school office at cost price every day.

Hair & Make-Up – students are not permitted to wear any make-up (including nail polish or acrylic nails) to school. Any students wearing make-up will be asked to remove it and may be sanctioned. Hair must be worn in a natural, professional style. Long hair must be able to be tied back for sports and science activities.

Jewellery – the only items of jewellery permitted are a plain watch and small, discreet stud earrings. Nose and other facial piercings are not allowed.  Other items may be confiscated and students sanctioned.

Second hand uniform – Our parents association, SwanComm, accepts donations of second hand uniform, and will sell this second hand uniform at events such as SwanFest. Please see the SwanComm website for details of upcoming events. SwanComm also use the ‘Marketplace’ section of Classlist to allow parents to buy and sell uniform to each other. Please register for Classlist to use this service.
