Uniform

The Wattleview School Council has made school uniform compulsory on all occasions. Our purpose in having a school uniform is to:

  • create a sense of identify and belonging and thus improving morale
  • promote the school through more readily identifiable groups of children
  • remove the pressures of fashions on parents and children

The uniform shop is now open every day by contacting the office.
