Uniform

Why do students at Oaks Park wear a uniform?

Students wear uniform at Oaks Park High School because:

  • it makes children feel equal to their peers in terms of appearance;
  • it is practical and smart;
  • it promotes a sense of pride in the school;
  • it reinforces a sense of belonging to our school community;
  • it identifies the children with the school;

Students travel to and from school in full school uniform.
