The wearing of a school uniform has proven to increase a student's core need of "belonging". This can have a significant impact on self-esteem, behaviour, school engagement, relationships and the learning environment. Wearing a school uniform reduces long term costs, reduces peer pressure and distractions, contributes to school spirit, assists in student identification and promotes a safer school environment.
Our school community has overwhelmingly determined that a school uniform is to be worn daily by students. Our P&C strongly supports this policy: 'Consistently wearing the school uniform engenders a strong sense of identity in Mullumbimby High School students'.
We express our gratitude to all parents/carers for encouraging your child's wearing of school uniform every day.
