Rationale:  Having a uniform fosters school pride and self-esteem in students. It promotes the culture of the School and visibility in the community.

To enhance the identity of our students.
To ensure clarity of standards for wearing the uniform.


  1. The wearing of the uniform at school is compulsory for all students.
  2. The correct uniform is to be worn in its entirety and must be in good condition; clean and in good repair. Items worn for additional warmth during winter terms underneath polo shirts must not be visible.
  3. Wearing of the school hat is compulsory during Terms 1 and 4 only.
  4. Students are required to wear the uniform at special school events outside school hours.
  5. Students are required to wear the sports uniform for representative games and at inter-zone sports meetings. 
  6. All items must be clearly named.
  7. The uniform consists of Sunnybrae Normal School:
    • Polo shirt with long sleeves (black) or short sleeves (yellow) with Sunnybrae logo
    • Full-zip polar fleece with Sunnybrae logo
    • Summer – Bucket hat (with Sunnybrae logo) Terms 1 and 4
    • Winter – optional – plain black beanie (Terms 2 and 3)
    • Black shorts, skort, or trousers with Sunnybrae logo
    • Shoes or sandals that are predominantly black (no boots or jandals) 
    • Black or white socks/tights
    • Black or white headbands/ties only may be worn
    • P.E./Sports Tee with Sunnybrae logo
    • School jacket with Sunnybrae logo

8. Students who arrive at school incorrectly dressed should have a note from their parent/caregiver that explains why this is the case.
9. Exemptions to the wearing of any or all of the uniform will be considered at the Board’s discretion.
10. Applications for exemption to wearing any or all of the uniform must be made in writing, to the Chairperson of the Board of Trustees, stating the reasons why the exemption is requested.
11. Consistent failure by a student to wear the correct uniform, or to wear the uniform correctly, as a breach of this policy, will be dealt with according to the School’s usual disciplinary procedures.
