At St Francis Xavier’s we are proud of who we are and we encourage our students to also have pride in our school, as well as who they are. A visual way of demonstrating this is through our school uniform. Correct wearing of the school uniform and good grooming demonstrate pride in our school, respect for one’s self and respect for others. The school uniform also helps our students to foster a strong sense of belonging within our school community.
In partnership with our families, it is an expectation that all students come to school wearing their correct uniform on a daily basis.

Please note that dangly earrings, pearls or coloured studs are not permitted. Neither makeup nor nail polish are to be worn at school.
