We expect all our students to take pride in their appearance and wear their uniform as a symbol of their pride in their school and a reflection of our CORE values of Respect and Excellence.

Students must conform to the uniform standards on all College occasions unless otherwise directed by the College Principal. This Uniform Policy applies during school hours, while travelling to and from school, and when students are engaged in school events, excursions and activities out of school hours. The wearing of the school uniform by students:

  • promotes a student’s sense of identity with and pride in the college.
