    The Hallett Cove School has a clearly defined, functional school uniform. It is the expectation of the school that all students will wear this uniform, without variations, when attending school or school excursions. There are many reasons why schools adopt such policies. Foremost amongst them is the desire to engender a sense of identity with, and pride in the school. Additionally a school uniform provides a means of identification and increases levels of security within the school.
