Uniform Standards and Grooming Guidelines  

 

Uniforms should be neat, clean and worn in a modest fashion.  

 

Skirts/dress  

The lengths of the skirts and dress should be touching the floor when kneeling upright (worn just above the knee).  

Grey opaque stockings may be worn with the skirt or pinafore in winter.  

 

Shoes  

Plain black leather school shoes are to be worn (no joggers or suede) 

 

Socks  

Socks should be worn above the ankle. Sport socks are only permitted when wearing the sports uniform.  

 

Hair  

Students should wear their hair in a clean, neat and tidy manner.  

Hair should be tied back if it extends beyond the shoulders.  

Fringes should not extend below the eyebrows.  

Hair that could fall over the face should be tied back securely.  

Extreme hairstyles, including shaved or "number 1", Mohawks, rat tails, tracks, dreadlocks and extreme undercuts are not acceptable.  

Hair should not be coloured to an unnatural colour or pattern. 

 

Hair Accessories (including ribbons)  

Hair accessories should be discreet and must be in school colours. Scrunchies made from the matching uniform material (summer or winter as appropriate) can be worn. Decorative hair clips are not to be worn.  

This is an important WH&S issue and reduces the transmission of head lice. This standard applies equally to boys and girls. 

 

Hats  

A “No hat, play in the shade” policy applies in terms 1 & 4. If students do not have their hat, they will need to stay in the shade. 

Wide brimmed maroon hats are to be worn. Caps are not permitted, because they do not cover the ears and do not provide the cover required to prevent sun damage. 

 

During terms 2 & 3 students are allowed to wear a plain maroon or black beanie.  

All staff and students are encouraged to apply SPF 30+ (or higher) broad spectrum water-resistant sunscreen 20 minutes before going outdoors, and to reapply every 2 hours when outside for extended periods. 

 

Makeup  

No makeup, nail polish, or unnatural hair dye is permitted.  

 

Jewellery  

No jewellery, apart from a watch and / o r  s i l v e r  o r  g o l d   stud or sleeper earrings are  to be worn in the ear. 

No other visible or adorned piercings are permitted.  

Stretchers (e.g., tapers, eyelets, plugs, spirals, etc.) are not permitted. 

 

Other  

Tattoos are not permitted.  

No visible facial and body piercing is allowed other than in the earlobes.  

 

Sports uniform  

Sports uniform is worn on days that are designated for sports.  

 

Please help your child to understand that they represent their school when they are in the wider community and it is expected that they will wear their uniform with pride and in the manner outlined above.
