College Uniform

General Expectations Regarding Uniform and Grooming

All students are expected to wear the correct full College uniform, and to take pride in it. The uniform has been developed in consultation with parents and every effort has been made to develop a uniform which is distinctive, symbolic and smart. 

The uniform is a symbol of the College and will help students identify with the College and develop a sense of pride in themselves and the College. 

The College insists that full College uniform be worn correctly. Parents are asked to support the College in this matter.   

Students are expected to be neat and well groomed at all times. Hairstyles must be appropriate for the wearing of the College uniform. There are to be no extremes in hairstyles in cut, style or colour. Bright, lurid rinses and bleaches are not permitted.

Boys must be clean shaven when they come to the College each day. Beards and moustaches are not permitted. 

Hair is to be neatly groomed and tied back if long.

Note to Explain Incorrect Uniform:

If, on a particular day, a student is unable to wear any part of the uniform a note written dated and signed by the student’s parent/guardian must be presented to the Homeroom Teacher. This is a basic courtesy and the student will not be penalised in any way.

ACCESSORIES

Wearing of accessories should be kept to a minimum for both safety and security reasons. Thus, the following ONLY are acceptable:

·       watch

·       gold or silver studs or sleepers (girls only)

·       one silver or gold ring

·       one single neck chain (silver or gold) with or without a small simple medallion, cross etc. No leather, shells or beads.

·       one bracelet (silver or gold). No leather, shells or beads.

Make-up and Nail Polish are considered to be inappropriate with the College Uniform.

Nose rings and plastic keepers are not permitted, nor eyebrows or other facial piercings.

Hair is to be neatly groomed and tied back if long.

Hair decorations are to be in tone with the College Uniform

Excess and Non-regulation Jewellery 

Any items of jewellery that are not an accepted part of the uniform will be confiscated. These will be placed in an envelope with the student’s name and Homeroom and brought to the Office. All confiscated items will be returned to students at the end of the College term.
