The Winter uniform at Bremer State High is expensive and nowhere near warm enough to keep our kids warm in our area where we receive winter temps of 1° and sometimes lower into the negatives.Changing the current $65 spray jacket that has no warmth at all to a plain grey jumper will increase the amount of students being kept warm by 100percent.It will increase kids attendance by limiting suspensions due to incorrect uniforms.There are 50% maybe more of kids that attend Bremer High each day in Winter with no jumpers and face trying to learn in the cold due to jackets that are not warm enough for those that do have one or for those whose childrens families can not afford the cost.I am all for uniforms i think its great,its creates pride and ownership however there has to be some give and take.For the cost of 1 Bremer State High uniform winter jacket a student could be provided with 3 plain grey warm jumpers!! Ipswich is a socio-economic area of many levels why are we choosing to highlight those that can not afford to provide or are struggling to make ends meet.A basic working family with 2 children at Bremer High have to come up with $230  and up depending on year level each year per child just in fees and levies then the average book list then on top of that a minimum of $200 per child just for one set of school required uniforms sports shirts,formal shirt and school Jacket.This does not include the manadatory black leather shoes and bring your own devices that may be required in higher levels of education.That is approx $430 per child and everyone knows that 1 school shirt is not fessible for a whole week.For a family of 2 children that is $860 that is a huge cost in our economic times.Why give families the extra cost of a winter uniform that does not meet the requirements of our cold environment in winter anyway.We have children sitting in classrooms freezing or being suspended due to the wrong jumper or colour of there socks and shoes than sitting in a class room focused and warm and learning!!! We preach individuality and acceptance in every part of our lives......lets accept that the current uniform for winter is dated,costly and way underrated in its ability to provide warmth to our kids.
