Uniforms

Hastings Christian School uniform is an important part of the culture of our school. The manner in which our young people present themselves for school reflects their sense of pride and engagement with the school community. Our standard of dress contributes to the reputation of our school, the maintenance of which is the responsibility of every student.  The school considers it essential that staff, parents and caregivers support these regulations to ensure that at all times and in all circumstances, each student is correctly presented in all respects. Our intention is to have all students presented to a high standard at all times

 

Students are required to wear full regulation uniform. If there is a valid reason for wearing a non-regulation item of uniform, the student must provide a signed note from their parent to the class teacher. Inspections will take place regularly. Students are required to take pride in their appearance and uphold the uniform standard required by the BOT. Students will wear summer uniform in terms one and four, and winter uniform in terms two and three.

Most items will be available from the school uniform shop. Second-hand options may be available from Uniform Me.
