Grade 3/4 students in the official Italian school uniform


Grade 3/4 students learnt a little about the public school system in Italy. We discussed some similarities and differences between Australian and Italian primary schools. The biggest difference students highlighted was the school uniform called a ‘grembiule’ (school smock). It was great to see how interested the students were in learning about cultural differences.

Grade 1/2 students in Italian uniforms.


Grade 1/2 students learnt about the Italian primary school uniform called ‘grembiule’. Students from Prep to Year 6 wear these as their school uniform.  They are predominantly worn by students who attend public school. The school ‘smock’ is gender neutral and sometimes comes in a different shade of blue.

The students loved dressing up as Italian school students.

Foundation A students singing in their Italian ‘grembiule’


Foundation students will be learning how to greet their peers and others in Italian and have started learning this through an Italian greeting song called ‘Ciao, Buongiorno’ (Hello, Good day). They also learnt a little about Italian culture and what children in Italy wear to school. The ‘grembiule’ is the traditional uniform worn by children in Primary School. They are worn over casual clothes and are worn by both girls and boys.
