Dress Code Policy

The Dunsborough Primary School Board has established a dress code for all primary students attending the school.

The School Board believes a school dress code:

  • Fosters and enhances the public image of the school;
  • Assists in building school and team spirit;
  • Ensures students are safely and appropriately dressed for specific school activities;
  • Encourages equity among students, avoiding competitive dressing and its associated financial burden.


Students should ensure they take appropriate protection from the sun when outdoors, ie.hat and sunscreen; the school has a policy of “No Hat No Play in the Sun” all year except in the months of June and July.
