Uniform

Flagstaff Hill R-7 School’s Uniform Policy supports students, teachers and families in the following ways: 

  • Enables the students to develop a sense of identity, belonging and pride in their school 
  • Encourages the selection of clothing that supports active participation in all school activities 
  • Diffuses a competitive/harassing environment where students are labelled according to clothing/fashion 
  • Provides an aspect of safety whereby students are more easily recognisable both within school and out of school activities 

The Uniform Policy requires students to wear the uniform with pride and in neat, clean and appropriate manner. The schools colours are gold and bottle green.
