Australian School Uniform: Activities

Figure 1.--.

Regulations on the traveling uniform varied from school to school. Most schools wanted to put their best face forward and had definite rules on how the boys should be dressed in public when coming to school. State primary schools, even those with uniforms, often did not have blazers. Many other schools did have blazers. At some schools boys would come to schools in their blazers, but just wear their jumpers while in class or shirts in the warm weaher. This included the boarding schools with day boys. The baorders often did not wear their blazers much, only on Sunday and other special days. Most schools required the boys to dress up in their blazers when taking school trips or when traveling at the beginning and end of term. Caps were also required, as in Englnd, although by the 1980s they had been dropped at many schools.
