Uniform

A properly worn uniform:

  • Will enhance the College image and student pride in the College
  • Is an indicator of a good College tone
  • Helps students identify with the College community
  • Allows the wider community to identify students from the College
  • Diminishes fashion competitiveness and superficial differences

The College has standards of uniform and grooming to which all students are expected to conform.  Parents, in enrolling their child, indicate their agreement with and support of the College’s position. This includes maintaining a high standard of uniform by providing correct uniform items and ensuring their child wears the correct uniform each day, clean, neatly worn and in good repair. 

A student in College uniform, or involved in any activity associated with the College, is representing the College.  This includes excursions and travelling to and from the College.  Students are therefore required to dress accordingly. Students will not be permitted to attend the activity if not dressed correctly.

If a student is unable to wear any item of College uniform a written explanation must be presented to the class teacher on that day.  The uniform infringement must be rectified immediately when possible or purchased within one week or as agreed.
