CTK Uniform Survey – Communications and Design

Dear Families,

Christ the King (CTK) School provides children with a vibrant and caring environment where each child is encouraged to explore, learn and play in their own unique way. We are a school that caters to diverse needs, with dignity and respect at the heart of what we do – Care for and Respect Everyone.

As such, the School Advisory Council (SAC) has discussed ways that promote 21st-century learning and how we can support our students to be readily equipped for play-based learning and contemporary experiences.

One of the ways that we have considered this is through tabling the idea to review the school uniform and uniform policy. We would like our uniform to be one that children are comfortable wearing, is cost-effective for families, and continues to reflect the pride we have in our school.

We are undertaking a period of consultation with families, students, and teachers to gauge interest in reviewing the school uniform. We are interested in hearing from those in our community as to what you like and would like to see change in the current summer and winter uniforms.

A short survey, taking approximately 5-10 minutes to complete, will soon be sent to families and teachers seeking your comments and feedback. Some of the school children have already provided feedback in persuasive writing activities. Other age-appropriate channels will be used with younger year groups. It matters to us to include all members of our community as part of this consultation.

We encourage all families and teachers to participate. It is important we hear the community’s voice to ensure decisions are supported and embraced by all.

Please be rest assured individual survey responses will remain anonymous. The collective data will be collated and analysed to gauge support before we go forward with any decisions. Should there be a support to change the uniform, further consultation and a lengthy transition period will enable families plenty of time to adjust.

You, as families and teachers, are valued key stakeholders in this process and we will communicate and be transparent throughout this journey.

Kind regards,

School Advisory Council




Let truth and thoughtfulness be our guide. 


Blue for the colour of the Scottish flag and its heritage for Mr. John McTavish, the first lay Principal of Christ the King School. 

  • The Cross and a Book
  • Blessing and Thoughtfulness

McTavish is named after Mr. John McTavish. He was the first lay principal of Christ the King School and was appointed in 1975.  Mr. McTavish was of Scottish heritage and the colour blue represents this heritage. Under his guidance a pre-primary and Intensive Language Centre was established and the school grew to become the double-stream school it is today. 

The Charisma of McTavish House is TRUTH which is The integrity and sincerity with which Mr. McTavish took on the role of principal of Christ the King School and continued to carry on the work of the religious orders that founded our school. 

The symbol on the McTavish Banner is the cross and a book symbolising the religious and educational contribution to our school by Mr. McTavish.  The motto of McTavish house is;

Let truth and thoughtfulness be our guide.

Parents and relatives are invited to attend our school’s McTavish Prayer Service

at 2.30 pm on Wednesday 19 October in the school hall.

CTK Carers – Etiquettes and Dealings

Dear Parents

CtK Carers is an initiative of Christ the King Catholic school community, organised through CtK Parents and Friends, to assist families within the school community that may be struggling, either short-term or long-term, due to illness, bereavement, family crisis, the birth of a child or any type of change.

CtK Carers has been very specifically created to perform this single and very important service. Therefore, no other organisation or persons for example class groups or individual groups should be organised to serve the same purpose.

To ensure the effective running and continued service that CtK Carers provides, the following etiquettes are requested to be adhered to.

  • Family or known person of the family makes direct contact with the Coordinators of CtK Carers, requesting their support.
  • Coordinators to notify School Leadership Team about the case presented.
  • Coordinators contact families requiring/requesting support to assess their needs e.g. providing meals, performing ironing or pickup and dropping off students.
  • Volunteers (organised through CtK Carers only) are contacted and requested to complete nominated services like those mentioned above, which they have nominated on the CtK Volunteer sheet distributed to them by request from CtK Carers or downloaded from the school website.

 CtK Carers has only operated for a year now and has successfully assisted families within our school community. They have carried an important role in providing the types of support requested of them.

To ensure continued success, a request for support from all of the school community is being made for CtK Carers to act freely in providing the service that it has been designed to provide by adhering to the simple etiquette specifically established for its intended purpose.

If you would like to help, please become a volunteer. Volunteers are always required. If you feel that you would like to know more please contact CtK Carers to inquire how you could be of assistance. 

Please contact Mr Dobbie. 9487 9900

Thank you in anticipation of your support.

CtK Carers with the support of the Christ the King Parents and Friends
