Our students are representatives of our College. We appreciate your support by ensuring the uniform is worn in the correct manner and ensure that garments are kept in good condition.

The Emmaus Christian College uniform and accessories are unique (except for shoes) and is only available from the Uniform Shop, located on the South Plympton campus, behind the Canteen.

We understand that the cost of a complete College uniform is a large initial financial outlay so we have made every effort to source the lowest prices balanced with durable fabrics. We offer second hand resale.

Each child should own two pairs of school shoes:

  1. Black leather lace-up school shoes (Junior Primary F-2 may have velcro). This does not include 'lady jane' style or sports sneakers
  2. Quality sports shoes - where possible in neutral College colours including a single colour or combination of white, blue, grey, black (F-2 may have velcro straps instead of laces)

  • Sports drink bottle (water only)

Students that are injured or ill are still required to be changed, as they will be incorporated into the lessons where possible (i.e. umpiring, coaching, statistician, video recorder, etc.).
