Our school dress and presentation requirements are tangible evidence of the high standards expected of and achieved by the Mernda Primary School Community. The benefits of our school dress code include: promoting a positive image of our school and creating a sense of identity among students; promoting safety of students through easy identification; keeping costs of clothing within reasonable limits for parents; and assisting students to learn the importance of appropriate presentation. 

Please note that all uniform purchases can only be obtained at LOWES.
