all uniforms

General Guidelines
Uniforms should be clean, ironed and kept in good repair. College Uniforms can be purchased three ways: through the College Uniform Shop at the Middle and Secondary Campus, through The School Locker store located at Shop 6, The Zone, 2118 Ipswich Road, Oxley or online at theshoollocker.com.au.

The Secondary dress uniform should be worn Monday to Thursday unless students have been informed by their teacher that they have a practical sport lesson on a particular day.

Uniform must be neat and correctly worn when travelling to and from the College, or anytime a student is in public and outside of the College.

The Heads of Houses have the final say as to what is an acceptable deviation from the uniform standard. Any uniform deviations are to be explained in a note from a parent.

Hair
Hair must be neat, tidy and well groomed. Crew cuts, dramatic hair styles including asymmetrical designs, tracks or cuts less than a number 3 blade, dramatic changes in length and dreadlocks are not acceptable. Hair colour must be a single natural colour with no streaks, highlights, or visible root or tip colour difference.

Boys’ are to be clean shaven and their hair must be cut above the collar and ears and away from the eyes so as not to obstruct vision. Boys are not to wear hair ties and should be in a style enabling a hat to be worn.

Girls’ hair should be tied back with plain black, white or navy hair ties and silver or gold clips, in a style that enables a hat to be worn. Hair should be neatly groomed away from their eyes so as not to obstruct vision.

Hats
Parents/ carers are responsible for ensuring that their child/ren wear their hats to school and apply sunscreen prior to arriving at school each morning. Please ensure hats are named clearly inside and free from graffiti.

The correct hat is to be worn with each uniform and brought to every class every day.
