Uniform

Our Board of Trustees by-law requires students wear the regulation uniform in school at all times.  Uniform gives students a sense of belonging and allows all children to be equally well dressed.  All belongings must be named.

We have updated our uniform for 2017 and have introduced a PE uniform for students.

In line with our school policy there will be a one year phase in period. It is intended that students who were enrolled at Berkley (Yr 7 or Yr 8 in 2016) will have the option to continue to wear uniform items they have now. The expectation is that all students will be wearing our new PE uniform in 2017 but we are mindful that our school policy allows for a grace period of one year for any uniform item changes.  In 2018 the PE uniform will be compulsory for all students.
