Wearing of Uniform

The uniform should be neat, tidy and clean at all times.

Hats

The wearing of hats is compulsory at all times when outdoors.  Students are required to wear wide-brimmed hats for maximum sun protection and these may be the navy or grey formal school hat, Primary wide brimmed hat, prep cap or the sports hat in Secondary. No other hats/caps are to be worn with the school uniform. Students who wear other hats/caps will have them confiscated.

Grooming

Hair

Hair must be neat and tidy and should clear the collar if worn long.  Styling should be such that it is acceptable to the general community.

We will NOT accept any unusual hairstyles at the school. As a general guideline the following is not permitted;

  • Change of colour to one that is very obviously not the natural hair colour 
  • Two-toned colours (e.g. highlights, streaks) must be subtle
  • Unusual cuts (eg. shaved head, mullets, undercuts, tracks)
  • Hair below shoulder length must be tied back
  • Hair is to be neat, tidy and off the face at all times

Only school coloured (red, green, yellow) ribbons, hair ties, and scrunchies are to be worn. Ribbons or scrunchies that are school coloured but patterned (e.g. green and red stripes, red and white polka dots) are not permissible – they must be plain colours only.

Facial Hair

Students should be clean shaven at all times.

Cosmetics

Makeup and nail polish are not to be worn. However, a light foundation with sunscreen protection is permissible for Secondary students.

Jewellery

Students may wear one pair of small earrings in the lower lobe of their ears. These must be plain silver, or gold. Earrings must be removed when playing sport. A watch may also be worn. Students are able to wear a religious medal or crucifix on a chain around their neck. Any other jewellery, including rings, will be confiscated and held until the end of the day or parents make arrangements to collect items.
