The way in which the School uniform is worn has a strong influence on how we feel about ourselves and the ways in which we are viewed by others. Every student’s standard of dress and grooming is expected to reflect well on both the individual and the School as a whole, even if outside of School hours. If a student is not able to wear the correct uniform, a letter of explanation must be brought to school and presented to their class teacher. You can also use the ‘Out of routine’ eform.
Garments have been designed to be as inexpensive as possible, given our commitment to having a uniform which is practical and attractive. Parents do need to make financial provision for the purchase of the total uniform, which includes a compulsory Sports and PE uniform.

Casual Dress Day Protocol
- On designated Casual Dress Days, the School does expect that students will dress in a way that reflects positively on themselves and on the School.
The mode of dress is expected to be modest and appropriate for the designated event and monitored by staff, accordingly the following guidelines should be followed (at all year levels):
Closed shoes. No thongs, flip-flops or heels.
Shoulders and midriffs to be covered.
No short shorts/skirts or shirts; skirts are to be at least mid-thigh to knee length.
Neat, clean and presentable appearance, as per the uniform guidelines.
Items of clothing in good repair.
If students dress inappropriately, a call will be made to parents and students will be required to return home to change.
Please note: This is the only exemption to the uniform rule.
