Guidelines for the School Uniform

Parents are asked to support the school in ensuring that students adhere to the guidelines as detailed below:

  •  The school uniform must be clean, neat and correctly worn at all times.
  • Shirts/blouses should be buttoned at the neck.
  • Ties must be worn properly and not loosely around the collar.
  • Skirts must be worn to the knee.
  • Only school uniform jacket to be worn. Non-uniform jackets, fleeces or hoodies must not be worn on the way to school or during school time.
  • Jewellery should be kept to a minimum and it is limited to two finger rings and one discrete earring in each ear. (Upper ear piercings are not allowed)
  • Facial piercings are not allowed in any circumstances in the interests of health and safety and uniform code.
  • Students are not allowed to wear make-up in school or while representing the school.
  • Students are expected to come to school with their natural hair colour.
  • It is the responsibility of students to look after their uniform at all times. To prevent loss of items parents/guardians are asked to ensure that jackets and jumpers are labelled with the student’s name.
  • Students are expected to look neat and well-groomed while wearing the school uniform and representing the school.

Any issues relating to uniform should be brought to the attention of school management as soon as possible.

Breaches of the uniform guidelines will be addressed under the school Code of Behaviour. Non-uniform items of clothing worn to school may be confiscated and returned when a parent/guardian collects the item from school.
