Uniform

Uniform

The wearing of a school uniform is an important and vital part of our philosophy. Students at the school wear their uniform because:

  1. It speaks of a commitment to our school.
  2. It readily identifies the student and the school in the community.
  3. It encourages discipline and responsibility in the life of the student.
  4. It gives the student a sense of belonging and identification.
  5. It is practical and economical.

The School Uniform

The uniform has been carefully selected by the Board, in consultation with Staff and the P & F. It is functional and attractive as well as appropriate for the school. All students attending the school are required, as part of the enrolment acceptance, to wear the prescribed uniform which must be purchased only from the school uniform shop.

A uniform is provided for boys and girls incorporating Summer and Winter elements. Due to the generally mild nature of our climate Winter additions may be worn during Term 2 & 3 only. (This includes tights for girls, long pants for boys, jackets, gloves and scarves).

All compulsory uniform requirements must be purchased through the uniform shop at the school.

DRESS CODE

Hair Styles

Boys hairstyles are to be modestly cut above the collar line and not to cover the face or eyes.

Girls with hair that touches their shoulders must keep their hair tied back. No hair should be on the face or cover the eyes. Hair should be tied back with black, white/neutral or navy hair bands. K-6 girls may also wear red hair bands.

'Outlandish' hairstyles (such as "punk", "mohawks", "rats tails", long hair undercuts, dyed hair, highlights, streaks) are not appropriate for school and should therefore not be worn. 2mm crew cuts are the lowest acceptable short haircut for boys. The term 'outlandish' is interpreted to mean those hair styles pursued by individuals intent on drawing attention to themselves.

Make Up

Students are not to wear any form of make up at school without the permission of the Principal.

Jewellery

  • No items of jewellery other than a watch and/or signet ring are to be worn
  • Only studs or sleepers (1cm diameter) in girls pierced ears. No more than 2 gold/silver per earlobe
  • Nail polish is not to be worn
  • Boys are not to wear earrings
  • Neck chains are unacceptable at all times
