School reviews both winter and summer uniforms

Woy Woy Public School is reviewing both its winter and summer school uniforms.

"The Department of Education's School Uniform Policy states that a school's uniform should: 'include items that are affordable, comfortable, made from easy-care fabrics, appropriate for activity and suitable for all body shapes," said principal Ms Ona Buckley.'

"It also notes that: 'Each school's uniform requirements should be reviewed when the need arises.'

"With this in mind, the uniform committee was formed to discuss potential changes to our school uniform."

Ms Buckley saod the committee had already met once to consider a number of ideas for new items to be incorporated into the uniform as well as possible changes to existing uniform items.

"With regard to the summer dress and tunic, the committee discussed investigating whether the community would value a move towards a gender neutral option," Ms Buckley said.

Other discussion points raised during the first meeting included: whether parents and carers were happy with the quality and wearability of the current make of skirt; procuring an alternative to the winter uniforms cargo pants; and whether or not the school needed three options for warm, upper body outerwear and if not, should it discontinue offering the fleece jumper.

"The committee will now initiate a process of consultation with school community that will include surveying community members," Ms Buckley said.

"Parents and carers will be able to complete the survey electronically on a number of platforms.

"The school will give parents and carers sufficient time to purchase new items should any changes be made and there will be a three-year changeover period during which students will be allowed to wear any of the discontinued lines," Ms Buckley said.
