The uniform is available only from the College Uniform Shop. It is a requirement that students wear full uniform at school and to and from school, on all but declared non-uniform days. The uniform needs to be kept clean. Any unexpected deviation from the specified requirements must be accompanied with a note from a parent/guardian.
A hat is part of the uniform and must have the student’s name printed inside the crown. Hats are to be worn to and from the College and carried all day at school.
- The hat must be worn when outside.
- The hat must be maintained in good condition, without writing or drawing on the outside or inside.
- Students can choose to wear either the formal hat or bucket hat.
In the situation where there is an identified medical condition requiring a change in footwear, a medical certificate must be provided, and appropriately covered footwear to satisfy Workplace Health & Safety requirements must be worn. Even with a medical certificate, the student will not be permitted to attend sport, laboratory, workshop areas, home economics, art or graphics rooms without footwear that meets the specific requirements for those areas.
A College bag is part of the uniform and must be purchased from the tuckshop.
