Dress Code

The dress code is established by the School Staff and Board of Leinster Community School to promote a positive, safe and healthy learning environment for the students.

Our school dress code:

  • Fosters, promotes and enhances the public image of the school
  • Ensures students are safely and appropriately dressed for specific school activities
  • Encourages equality among students
  • Assists in building school and team spirit
  • Assists in identifying our students for requirements of duty of care, particularly for out of school activities such as excursions

Uniform Requirements

Leinster Community School has a uniform for students. The uniform consists of a black/purple shirt and jacket, black or purple bottoms as well as a black/white or purple dress. Faction shirts (red and blue) are also available.
The uniform shop is run by P&C volunteers; new uniforms can be ordered from the P&C Uniform Coordinator Jodi O’Connor.

Hat Wear

  • Students need to wear hats when in the sun
  • When a student’s clothing is not consistent with the school dress code, the following measures may be taken:
  • Parents contacted via telephone or letter
  • Parents provided with a copy of the School Dress Code
  • Exclusion from excursions (this is specific to the day of excursions and is a measure to ensure safety of students while off site)

School Factions

The school promotes a faction system to foster team spirit and loyalty which reinforces our school values. We have two factions Percys (blue) and Waroonga (red) which are named after old mine sites in our area. Waroonga (gold) and Perseverance (nickel)  were both great models for digging deep and coming out on top!
Your child will be placed in one of these factions and all family members are placed in the same faction. Faction shirts can be worn to school at any time.
