Uniforms and the Uniform Shop

School uniforms help promote a positive school tone and a sense of being part of a school community.

The Rainworth uniform has been designed to be practical, economical, comfortable and sun safe. The school has a strict "no hat, no play" policy. Children not wearing a full-brimmed hat will be required to be in an undercover area. 

The cooperation of all parents is sought in having students dressed in the correct uniform at school and particularly on excursions. If you do look to purchase alternate items from cheaper local distributors, we ask that you purchase these in our school green.
 
Parents and carers are urged to ensure all items of school clothing are clearly labelled. This will help facilitate the return of the item and reduce the amount of lost property.
 

New uniforms can be ordered online via our online shop, Rainworth Online - see the instructions for registering for Rainworth Online and how to place orders in the 'Rainworth Online Guide to Ordering Uniforms' link to the right of this page.  

Uniform items for new Prep students will be ready for you to collect at the Prep Induction morning in Term 4.

Preloved uniforms may be purchased from the school Uniform Shop, which is open Wednesdays from 8.00am - 9.00am.

Our Uniform Shop is run by a convenor and parent volunteer helpers. You can contact them via email rainworthuniformshop@gmail.com​.
