The Gazette (Derwent Valley) - - FRONT PAGE - DANA AN­DER­SON Dana An­der­son is a UTAS jour­nal­ism stu­dent.

A SCHOOL uni­form is of­ten a way for stu­dents to show the pride and love they have for their school.

Wester­way Pri­mary School has over­hauled its old uni­form in favour for a more up­dated de­sign which the stu­dents wear with pride and a smile.

Leigh Ni­chols, a Grade 5/6 and phys­i­cal ed­u­ca­tion teacher at Wester­way Pri­mary School who helped spear­head the change, said the stu­dents wore their new mod­ern uni­form with pride.

“The kids hold their heads higher,” Mr Ni­chols said.

“We were try­ing to give them an al­ter­na­tive and up­dated choice, and ev­ery­one is very re­spect­ful in wear­ing it.”

Wester­way Pri­mary School is a small school with just 70 stu­dents and Mr Ni­chols said the new uni­form would help high­light the school’s iden­tity.

“We now have the look that we are a mod­ern school,” Mr Ni­chols said.
