College Uniform –  Q&A

Exactly how long should my dress or skirt be?
Skirts must cover the knee when standing.

Does my tie need to be done up properly all the time?
Shirt top buttons should be fastened and ties pulled up at all times.

I am cold in the mornings, which do I wear, my blazer or jumper?
Blazers must be worn to and from school during Terms 2 and 3.  They must be worn as students leave the school grounds and when they arrive in the morning.  Blazers are also compulsory in Homeroom and are to be worn to classes until recess time.  In addition, they are compulsory at all full school assemblies.  Jumpers are an addition to the uniform, if you get hot during the day, you are to remove your jumper and wear your blazer (not the other way around!).  During Terms 1 and 4, you may wear the College jumper over their summer uniform if required for warmth, but only at the College.

Can I wear singlets underneath my uniform?
Singlets that show below jumpers are not allowed, these should be tucked in neatly into your skirt.  Singlets are not to show through the blouse and should be either white or skin tone.

I have Physical Education today, can I wear my College jumper instead of my tracksuit?
Green College jumpers or yellow fleecy tops are not to be worn as a replacement for the tracksuit top.

I know I need to wear my hair up, but what sort of hair ties do I use?
Hair ties must be yellow or darkish (not fluorescent colours) green (and white for Year 12 students).  Hair elastics that blend with hair colour (brown/ black etc.) are also able to be worn.

I am thinking of colouring my hair, what colours can I choose?
Many students have the ‘blonde-brown’ sun streaked look, which is okay as long as it is kept tidy. However, very noticeable ‘chunks’ of dyed hair are not acceptable.  Students should have a natural looking hair colour.

Well what about my footwear?
Black lace up shoes are to be worn, slip-on shoes, canvas  or buckles are not permitted to be worn.  .

I was given a bracelet for my birthday can I wear it to school?
No bracelets can be worn except medic alert bracelets or bracelets that students never remove due to a strong religious or cultural conviction.  In this case, parents must provide a letter of explanation to the school, and discuss the matter with a Year Team Leader.  In terms of other jewellery students can wear two sets of small studs or sleepers in the bottom of the ear lobe.  Large ‘diamond’, ‘pearl’ or coloured earrings are not permitted as part of the uniform., they do not count as studs.  Only one plain ring is allowed.

What shoes do I wear in cooking classes?
Black lace up shoes must be worn during cooking classes
