Dress Code




The Darkan Primary School community, through the School Board, believes the wearing of a school uniform by students enhances the outcomes the school seeks. Students develop a sense of unity and pride in their school and provide equality and uniformity.



To provide parents and students with a dress code that is: safe and appropriate for school activities, reasonably contemporary in design, provides some choice, is affordable to parents and considers the risks of ultraviolet radiation.

To provide appropriate modifications/exemptions related to student health, ethnicity, religion or any other matter, which, in the Principal’s, is sufficient to exempt a student from the dress code requirements.

To encourage the adherence to the dress code by providing sanctions for non‑compliance.
