Bicycle Helmets and Scooters

It is imperative that we have parent support with regard to bicycle helmets. All students who ride a bicycle to school MUST wear a helmet. Parents will be contacted immediately if a student is riding a bicycle without a helmet.

Students riding scooters to school must also bring a padlock so they can be secured safely in the bicycle shed.


A reminder to families that if their child is using the bus to travel to and from school, they must have a MYKI card with enough money on the card to cover the trip.

Fountain Gate Primary School

We ask for parents to reinforce to their older siblings who attend Fountain Gate SC who collect younger siblings from Fountain Gate PS that they wait for their younger brothers or sisters at the allocated locations.

School Shoes

Traditional lace-up leather, polishable school shoes are required. Black runners are not acceptable. Girls may wear T Bar shoes which have a solid sole and leather uppers, shoes which are flimsy and similar to ballet slippers will not be permitted. Girls are required to have the buckles secured. If they are broken they must be repaired or replaced. We have a number of areas which require feet to be fully covered e.g. Science labs, Technology, Home Economics for safety reasons. Note: Casual shoes such as Vans which are sold as school shoes do not meet our School Uniform Policy.

Uniform Reminders

The Fountain Gate Secondary College uniform policy clearly states that any non-uniform items should NOT be worn at school.

If a student is seen wearing a non-uniform item, they will be asked to remove that item and hand it in to the Sub-School where the item will be stored and the student’s name recorded. That item can be collected at the end of the day. Examples of items include:

Scarves – can be worn but must be navy blue, black or white. Scarves with logos or brands are not acceptable. The scarves must be removed for Technology classes.

Students who repeat the behaviour of wearing non-uniform items will receive an appropriate consequence.
