Uniform

The Brookside College Council has endorsed a school uniform policy. Students are expected to wear the College uniform at all times. A compulsory uniform promotes equality and safety, by enabling students to be recognized as belonging to the college community. Uniform also enhances the positive image of the College in the community and enables our students to develop a sense of pride in representing the College.

Brookside College makes every effort to ensure the uniform is affordable to families and has been selected to be durable, cost effective and practical for the College environment.

Uniform details as well as itemized price lists can be accessed through our uniform supplier as well as referring to the documentation below.

Purchasing uniforms

Uniforms can be purchased from Dobsons either online or in store. We can deliver the uniform to home or office and offer immediate ‘click & collect’ facilities which reduces the danger of carrying cash to school.

BYOD

Brookside P-9 College are excited to announce the implementation of a new BYOD (Bring your own device) program for students commencing Year 7 in 2018. This program differs significantly from previous years in that Parents will have the flexibility and opportunity to buy a device that best suits the needs and financial situation of their family.

The College has worked with both JB Hi-Fi and Learning with Technologies to provide an option for parents to purchase suitable devices via a secure online portal. Parents also have the option to source a device elsewhere for their child or use a device that they already own, provided that minimum specifications are met (see below).

In order to support families in making a decision regarding the appropriate device, please refer to our 2018 BYOD program Booklet and Acceptable Use Policy.

Families are strongly encouraged to include the device on their home and contents insurance or investigate options to insure the device separately for accidental loss, theft or damage.
