Southern Cross Early Childhood School clothes are specially designed to enable young children to be comfortable, active and allow them to engage in play based learning.
Children at Southern Cross Early Childhood School are encouraged to wear the school colours of bright blue and orange. The colours have been specifically selected due to their high visibility and distinctiveness. The design of the clothing is relaxed and comfortable for the early childhood years and most suitable for play-based activities.
When children in Preschool to Year 2 participate in an excursion, families are strongly encouraged, in the interest of child safety, to ensure their children wear school clothes as they "stand out" and are easily distinguishable as belonging to Southern Cross Early Childhood School.
