School dress code

Cannon Hill State School students are expected to wear the school uniform, the requirements of which are determined in consultation with the P&C Association.  

Students are free to choose which uniform they wish to wear on any given day, but are encouraged to wear their sporting house uniform for sports days, and their green dress uniforms for school photo day and performances. Hats are compulsory for all outdoor activities – no hat, no play.

The standard school uniform colours are the official school colours: bottle green, maroon and white. School shoes are black. Thunderbolts house shirts are purple. Shooting Stars house shirts are orange.

For all students, the basic uniform components are:

·         Green and Maroon polo shirt;

·         Green and white checked shirt;

·         House polo shirt (these have the house name and motto on the back);

·         Bottle green shorts (or skort if preferred);

·         Wide-brimmed or bucket hat (white for Prep students, bottle green for all other students);

·         White, bottle green or black socks; and

·         Comfortable black shoes. These may be traditional school shoes, sandals or joggers, but must be safe (ie cover the feet, and be suitable to run in – no lights or wheels).

Additional uniform options include:

·         Green and white checked dress, trimmed with maroon;

·         Bottle green pleated skirt;

·         Bottle green fleece or microfibre tracksuit; and

·         Bottle green, maroon and white microfibre school logo jacket.

This uniform policy is in place to enhance the school’s image in the community, and to encourage a sense of school pride and belonging. 

Students attending out of uniform will be asked to provide an explanation. They will be offered a second-hand uniform on loan (if available) and a letter will be sent home explaining what has happened. Loan uniforms may be either washed and returned, or purchased.

All school clothing must be labelled with the student’s name.

Purchasing School Uniforms

The P&C tries to keep new uniforms as reasonably priced as possible, and also maintains a stock of affordable second-hand uniforms. In case of genuine hardship with uniform affordability, please contact the school to discuss how we can assist.

New Uniforms:

Cannon Hill State School uniform items are sourced, manufactured and supplied by local retailer Hosikozi Clothing Company.

Uniforms may be purchased in person at the Hosikozi store at 349 Riding Road Balmoral 4171. Hosikozi may also deliver phone orders to the school, for collection. They can be contacted on (07) 3899 3000 or via

Non-logo school uniform items (skorts, skirts, shorts, shoes, socks, tracksuits, hats) may be purchased from independent retailers if desired.

Pre-loved uniforms:

The school keeps a range of second-hand uniforms which can be accessed through the school office, or on designated Uniform Shop days (which will be notified via the school newsletter).  

Stock varies and is subject to availability, with items priced at a fraction of the new equivalent.

Families are encouraged to donate any preloved uniforms they no longer require to the Second-Hand Uniform Shop. ​​​​​
