 Naming

We would appreciate every item of clothing being named clearly so that lost items can be promptly returned to the correct owner since we do not store lost property.

Jewellery

Ear studs (plain, and only one in each ear) and watches are allowed but no other jewellery is permitted as it can be dangerous or a hazard.

Grooming

We would appreciate students coming to school in a clean, well groomed state. Make-up including nail varnish and skin adornments are not allowed. Black hair ties are to be used to put up  hair of collar length or longer. Hair should be tidy, appropriately groomed for school, and free of hair colourings, gel and extreme styles.

Hats

We are a sun smart school and all students are expected to wear their school hat before, after and during school time when outside particularly in Term 1 and Term 4.

Shoes

Uniform shoes must be plain black, flat and have laces or a strap.  Please ensure that they are polished on a regular basis.

Sports shoes can only be worn during PE and Fitness and only while wearing the PE uniform. Sports shoes can be any colour but must be appropriate for physical activity.

Socks

The boys are to wear the school socks. The girls are to wear plain black ankle socks, plain black knee length socks,  or black opaque tights.  This does not include footless tights/leggings.

Additional Information

Religious headwear is permitted but must be plain black.  Students are not to wear long sleeved tops that can be seen under their school uniform. Please see the office if you have any questions regarding this matter.
