All students are expected to wear full school uniform. The uniform consists of black pants, shorts or skirts, red and white check dress and our school top and jumper which is available from Hip Pocket Workwear in Warragul.

Year 6 students are able to get special embroidery on their jumpers at an additional cost.

There is a lost property box located at the Office that students and parents may look through to find lost uniform items.

We encourage all students to be neatly presented and ask that long hair is tied back, at all times for safety and health reasons.

Uniform Swap Shop

At Nilma, we have a Uniform Swap Shop where parents can bring in uniform items to ‘swap’ for items of different sizes. For further information please contact the Office.

Shoes & Socks

We recommend hard wearing, enclosed black school shoes or runners. Open toed footwear is not acceptable for safety reasons. 


Nilma Primary also has in place a Sunsmart Policy that requires our students and staff to be wear hats during the sunsmart period and be sun smart while outside.

Hats are available for purchase from Hip Pocket Workwear also.

Foundation students receive a school hat during their transition program at Nilma, which remains at school to wear at the beginning of their school year.

The use of sunscreen is also encouraged.
