Volunteers Wanted for 2018

Can you spare a few hours each week or month? We would like to hear from any parent willing to volunteer some time to the school by assisting in the Uniform Shop. This would involve helping in all aspects of the operation of the shop during open hours, approximately 4 hours a week.

If any parent is interested in helping, please contact Mrs Jan Burbidge either at the Uniform Shop or via the School Office on (08) 9537 0000.



Student Purchases

Whilst we understand that not every parent can get in to the Uniform Shop, and so you give money to your child/ren to make the purchase, where possible please can you give exact money for the items you need.


Some Helpful Uniform Reminders

  • Kilt length should be on or below the middle of the knee; when kneeling the bottom of the skirt should touch the floor.
  • All Secondary School boys should be wearing a compulsory plain black leather belt with their winter
  • Scarves worn to school must be the Frederick Irwin Anglican School knitted green and gold scarf with the formal winter uniform (from Year 3).
  • Tights – Primary girls wear the cotton 70 denier tights. Secondary girls wear the shiny 70 denier tights/stockings. (The cotton tights are a little sturdier for the Primary girls to wear.)
  • Primary boys – if they are wearing the winter grey shorts, they must wear knee high school grey socks; if they are wearing the winter grey trousers they can wear short or long school grey socks.
  • Polar jacket and vest can be worn only with the sports uniform not with the formal uniform.
  • Gold and green sports polo – all students should now be wearing the gold/green polo tops, not the gold only.
  • The microfibre sports jacket and track pants are to be worn from Year 6 to Year 12. Primary students from Kindergarten to Year 5 wear the nylon fleece top/jacket and pants or the polar fleece jacket.
  • Microfibre sports caps are worn from Year 7.
  • Clothing items that are faded or damaged will need to be replaced.
  • Rain jackets – all Primary students should have a yellow rain jacket in their bags. From Year 5, students are allowed to have the option of a green rain jacket if they either want one or have grown out of the yellow jacket.


Lost Uniforms

Please check your child/ren’s uniforms for names. If the item is not yours, please return it to the School Office as soon as possible, where we are able to give the item to the correct child. If you know the child, please pass it on to the owner.

Please be mindful that all items of clothing MUST have your child/ren’s name on them. This will not only reduce the risk of lost items, which result in additional costs for families, but items can easily be returned.


Exchange or Refunds on New Uniforms Items

The Uniform Shop is always willing to exchange or refund new items purchased, if they are the wrong size, or if a parent has changed their mind. However, these items need to be:

  • Returned with the original purchase receipt;
  • Still have the original tags attached or in packaging;
  • Be unworn/clean, as when purchased; and
  • Un-laundered.

Any item that is marked in anyway, whether it has been worn or not, will not be accepted for a credit or exchange for a different size or item. Your co-operation in this matter would be appreciated. There is no refund on any second hand items.


Second hand Uniforms

If you any uniforms that no longer fit, please re-sell them through them through the Uniform Shop. If the items are freshly laundered and in a very good condition, the Uniform Shop would like to assess them to possibly include in their second hand section.

Please note that any item that has been take in cannot be returned if either unsuitable or unsold. Please bare this in mind when bringing uniforms to sell.

Forms are available from either the Uniform Shop, Reception or online – details needed:

  • Name and address – so payment can be deducted from your school fees – once items are sold
  • Date purchased – this will help set the selling price

The selling price is set at 60% of the original price, and then you received an increased figure of 75% of the reduced selling price.


Pre-Ordered Items

All pre-ordered items will only be held for 10 working days once contact has been made – after this time the items will be put back on the shelf.
