2019 Back to School Information

With relevant uniform, stationery and book list changes from year-to-year, our ‘Back To School’ information is an important update for all students from Kindergarten to Year 12.


In addition to the general information below, there are specific information links provided at the right of this page for each section of the school – please ensure you click through to each of the sections relevant to your family.

Shop Hours

The School Shop opens on an extended schedule at the end of Term 4 to enable families to lodge second hand uniform items for sale, to purchase new and second hand uniform and to provide advice on booklist purchasing arrangements. During the latter half of January, the Shop also operates on extended trading hours, including some late evenings and Saturday mornings to enable families to purchase uniform. Please refer to the opening hours page on the website for dates and times.

Second Hand Uniform

As a service to the school community, the School Shop accepts second hand uniform items, school bags and some sporting equipment for re-sale in accordance with the terms and conditions stated on the lodgement form. All second hand items sold via the School Shop directly benefit the Parents and Friends Association, with a portion of the commission fee being donated to the P&F.  The end of Term 4 presents an excellent time to lodge second hand garments for sale as they can be processed and put on display ready for purchase during the back to school period.


Uniform is compulsory for all students in Kindergarten to Year 12, although requirements and options differ across year groups.  Click through to the section of the school that is applicable to your family to check these requirements .  The School Shop is the only authorised retailer of uniform garments and it stocks the full range of uniform items with the exception of shoes.

Every student is different and size and fit of garments do vary throughout the range. Therefore, it is important for students to attend the Shop for an initial fitting. As a guide, a complete uniform fitting for a new student usually takes 30 to 60 minutes.

Second hand garments are also available for purchase but availability does vary throughout the year. The Shop accepts second hand garments from parents year round subject to the terms and conditions detailed on the second hand lodgement form.  Lodgement forms can be downloaded from the Shop section of the school website or a copy collected from the Shop.

Books and Stationery

The School has partnered with Lamont Books to provide stationery and textbook sales to students in Years 7 to 12 through their online ordering system with delivery directly to families.  We have negotiated a range of benefits for families which include discounted postage and handling rates for early ordering by 12 December 2018 and an extended return and exchange period.  Please click through to the High School and/or Clemes links at the right to see full details and booklists.

Students in Kindergarten to Year 6 are supplied with most materials, books, stationery, writing and drawing equipment in their classrooms.
