JMSS is a strict uniform school, with both a Summer and Winter uniform, as well as a Sports uniform. Students may also need a labcoat depending on subject choices, and a school backpack is available with the JMSS logo.
Blazers must be worn as the outer garment on all school occasions, to and from school, and on all school excursions, unless otherwise advised. On days of extreme heat (30°C or greater), the blazer need not be worn.
Formal-style flat-heeled, fully enclosed, black leather shoes (required for safety in science labs) are to be worn. Sandals and T-bars are not permitted.
‘Out of Uniform’ days are sometimes held in order to raise money for social service. On such occasions, neat casual dress and neat safe (closed-toes) footwear is permitted.
Plain navy blue scarves are permitted in cold weather (no patterns). Plain navy blue beanies and gloves are permitted but not in classes.
Please label all your uniform items, books and personal belongings. Lost Property is stored at the Office, and if it has your name on it you will be emailed to pick it up. Anything left at the end of every term is donated to charity.
PSW is the school supplier and the closest PSW outlet to JMSS is at Mt Waverley. Order early so that you get your order in the right size at the appropriate time.
Buy and sell second-hand uniforms, books, calculators and stationery online - a great initiative run by our PFA.
JMSS is conscious of the need to provide an efficient process for families to recycle their textbooks, uniforms and other student resources. We would like to inform you of this initiative to trade second-hand items via the Sustainable School Shop
This service provides access to families to second-hand textbooks, uniforms, calculators, stationery, musical equipment, etc all year round. By simply advertising For Sale or Wanted items on the website the system will match buyers and sellers and provide relevant contact information to parties to trade. The system finds the closest matches between parties, and can also provide matches with families from different schools and for items no longer in use at JMSS.
Results from other schools have been excellent, and families have enjoyed a comprehensive and convenient method of trading their second-hand items. Read more in this brochure.
Families are encouraged to register early to participate in this service. The price of participation in this service is $1 per item listed, or $19.95 for an annual subscription giving you unlimited listings.
For the best results, use the system as follows:
Register on the website;
List your items for sale;
List Wanted Ads for those items you are looking to buy;
The JMSS booklists are loaded into the system to make listing ads easy;
The system matches the ads of buyers with sellers and notifies the buyer (Wanted Ad) via email;
Buyers contact sellers and arrange where and when to trade;
Most trading will occur with other parents from the school, however items can be traded with parents from other nearby schools too;
Parents are well supported via Sustainable School Shop’s telephone (1300 683 337) and email help lines;
The system is simple and easy to use – If you don’t have a computer, internet access or an email address, please call the Sustainable School Shop for assistance. All enquiries should be directed to the Sustainable School Shop on: 1300 683 337 or help is also available through ‘Contact Us’ on their website at www.sustainableschoolshop.com.au
We are very excited about this initiative being offered to parents and we hope you will make the most of the opportunity to annually recycle your school items.
