At Torrens Valley Christian School uniform is compulsory.
Our traditional colours are blue, red and white.
- The colour blue symbolises harmony between one another and the purity of holiness that we are called upon by Christ to put on.
- The colour red symbolises the shed blood of Jesus Christ who offers us salvation and eternal life.
- The colour white symbolises the Holy Spirit interwoven into our lives.
These colours together symbolise the love of God which flows throughout our school.

It is expected that parents will assist in seeing that our students are well presented by providing correct uniform items and ensuring that students have the correct uniform each day. Also, that it is clean, neatly worn and in good repair. It is expected that full uniform will be worn to and from school.
