School Uniform

​​​​Uniform Policy Statement​

St. Mark’s requires students to maintain a high standard of dress and grooming to present an appropriate image of the school to the broader community and each other.

Students from the St. Mark’s community are enrolled on the understanding that both parents and students appreciate and support the school’s uniform policy.

It would be unusual circumstances where a student does not wear a full school uniform. An accompanying letter from a parent or guardian is requested to explain the circumstances.

Parents will be advised of any uniform breach and reminded of the school uniform policy immediately through either a phone call or a letter. The uniform will need to be fixed by the following school day. In severe cases, the school leadership team will take necessary action and decide on appropriate consequences for uniform breaches.
