The North Nowra Public School P&C Association voted on and changed the school uniform at a Special General Meeting on Tuesday 15th September 2015 (An amendment to the policy was passed at a meeting of the P & C Association on 16 August 2016 regarding wearing of Representative Sport Jumpers). The North Nowra Public School Principal has accepted the recommendation.
