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. Students whose hair is below their collar are required to have it tied back. Hair decorations are to be in College colours (ie. Gold, blue).

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

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.
