It is the policy of Galilee Regional Catholic Primary School that all students must wear school uniform. Wearing the correct uniform is in keeping with our aim of developing in our students, a feeling of belonging and a sense of identity. The positive image that the school presents to the community is given high priority.
We express our gratitude to all parents/carers for encouraging your child's wearing of school uniform every day.
Galilee School Uniform can be purchased from PSW or the second hand uniform shop

Students need to wear the correct uniform to school on a daily basis and to and from excursions unless otherwise stated on a permission note.
If there is a genuine reason for a child to be out of uniform on any particular day, a signed note must go to the student’s classroom teacher at the start of the day stating the student's name, the date, and the reason for not wearing correct uniform and when the student will return to wearing the correct uniform.
If a student is out of uniform without a written explanation, a note will be sent home from the school explaining that the student attended school without the correct uniform. If the student continues to attend school, out of uniform without a written explanation, further communication and follow-up will occur.
Students are currently required to wear the winter uniform to school. Here are some examples of correct winter and sports uniform:
Please note if you are experiencing difficulty in providing the correct school uniform for your child, assistance may be available. Please contact the Office for more information.
