The wearing of school uniform is actively encouraged and is compulsory on school excursions. The school colours are red and black. Children must come to school neatly and appropriately dressed and with suitable footware (no open toed footware) for playing and participating in physical activities. It is advisable to send a jumper or bomber jacket each day and a raincoat in the winter months, as the weather is so changeable. The school red bucket hat is compulsory from mid August to April.
Parents may order uniform items directly from our uniform supplier EduThreads at https://eduthreads.com.au/collections/newham-primary-school. Unbranded items can be purchased elsewhere in the school colours if so desired.
Girls Winter tunics and Grade 6 varsity jackets must be ordered through the school office. Information regarding the Grade 6 jacket ordering process is provided to Grade 6 families in term 4 the year prior to students entering Grade 6.
Newham Primary School also operates a second-hand uniform supply for parents. All items are available for a gold coin donation. Please see the office if you are interested in second hand uniform.
Spare clothes are kept at the school in case of emergency. If your child comes home in any of these clothes, please wash the articles and return them as soon as possible. It is however advisable to provide a spare set of clothing for your child particularly in the Winter months as we have a limited amount of spare clothing.
ALL ITEMS such as school bags, lunch boxes, drink containers, etc. and ALL articles of outer clothing MUST BE NAMED. This will speed the safe return of misplaced items.
