When students wear a school uniform, they feel included in our school community.

Students, teachers, parents and carers, as well as members of our local community helped develop our school uniform to make sure it:

  • meets the requirements of occupational health and safety, anti-discrimination and equal opportunity legislation
  • includes items that are affordable, comfortable and made from easy-care and easy-wear fabrics
  • is appropriate for the full range of school activities
  • is suitable for all body shapes.

Wearing uniform creates a good impression in the community and creates a positive image of the school.

It can shape expectations and influence reactions, often inaccurately. As addressed in the NSW Department of Education ‘Behaviour code for students’, students are to ‘dress appropriately by complying with the school uniform or dress code’.

The wearing of our uniform is important as it serves to identify the students of Brisbane Water Secondary College Umina Campus and foster our Positive Behaviour for Learning values of Respect, Commitment and Relationships.

Parental encouragement, positive reinforcement and persistence in the matter of uniform will be supported at school. As a school community our strength is working together.

It is important to stress that Workwear Direct Woy Woy is the ONLY official supplier of our school uniform. 

Please contact Workwear Direct on 4341 5123 for stock or uniform price related enquires.

Acceptable school dress is not to be a matter of individual interpretation. If parents are having difficulty with the provision of a uniform, please contact the Principal.

Please support the school by ensuring that your children have sufficient items of school uniform and that the correct footwear is worn at all times. It is helpful to monitor what students wear to and from school as the appearance of students on their journeys to and from school as pedestrians or on public transport have a strong influence on how the community views Brisbane Water Secondary College and the wearing of the correct uniform is a reflection of student pride in themselves and the school.   

Students who elect not to wear the designated uniform will be followed up in accordance with school policy. Under the School’s Discipline Code, the wearing of the school uniform is compulsory.

Financial Assistance

Financial assistance is available for families to assist with the purchase of school uniforms once approved by the Principal.

We are proud of our school and school uniform, and have high expectations of our students wearing our uniform in its entirety and with pride.

School Shoe Guidelines

Students should wear substantial footwear to ensure participation in practical activities.

Unsafe shoes include those with openings, platform or high heels and made from unprotective, openweave materials such as canvas and cotton.

School shoes are to be ALL BLACK; the entire foot is to be enclosed by the shoe, including the upper section of the foot; the shoe is to have FIRM LEATHER UPPERS and the shoe is to have low heels and be lace-up or velco.


Students wearing incorrect shoes will not be allowed to participate in practical lessons.

Practical lessons are a compulsory component for many subjects. Students continually not complying with the shoe policy will result in discipline measures according to the school discipline policy.

Please note; Under no circumstances can students be on schol grounds whilst wearing thongs or slides.
