Uniform

Your P&C can fulfil all your uniform needs! Orders can be made online or by returning a hard copy order form to the School Office (extra forms are available from the School Office also).

The uniform shop runs two bulk orders a year (summer and winter). The Uniform Shop has limited stock on hand available for purchase in between these bulk orders. We strongly encourage everyone to order during our bulk orders to ensure that we can supply all your uniforms.

We also have second-hand uniforms available for purchase. The cost is a gold coin donation per item. This is open every Monday during term time, between 9am and 10.30am in the Home Ec room. If you would like to have a look outside of this time, please contact us to arrange this. If you have second hand items to donate, they can be dropped off at the School Office during school hours.

All proceeds from our uniform shops go back into the P&C and therefore back to our school and students. If you have any questions, please contact us at ndhsuniforms@gmail.com.

Thank you for your support

Uniform Policy

The NDHS School Uniform policy has been approved by the School Council and in accordance with Department of Education policy and guidelines on dress standards for students in public schools. It has been developed in consultation with staff, students and families.

Our uniform policy aims to: 
>> Promote a positive image of self and the school 
>> Reflect pride in both the self and the school
>> Help create a sense of identity and belonging
>> Promote sun smart and work safe practices
>> Promote equity
>> Provide a means to easily identify NDHS students both on and off the school grounds

Under this policy, students are required to wear our school uniform every school day and when representing the school outside of normal school days. At NDHS there is an expectation that students will come to school in school uniform that is clean, safe and appropriate for the day’s activities. 

Primary and Secondary students have the same uniform with the exception of Country Week and Leavers shirts. 

The NDHS School uniform is as follows:
>> Official School Polo Shirt: School colours as printed
>> Polo Shirt: Gold or Bottle Green
