MYP Uniform

Posted: April 16, 2021

Uniform Policy
Now that we are back on school site on a more regular basis, we would like to draw your attention to the need for consistency in the uniform worn by our students. Our school has the expectation that all students maintain a high standard of appearance both within the College and in public. Full and correct school uniform must be worn by all students in Years 1-11 and items of clothing must be clean, tidy and clearly labelled.

Years 7-11 uniform items

  • The polo shirt combined with school shorts/skirt/cargo pants is required for most school days. If students have Physical Education lessons, they must wear the correct PE uniform (House shirts, skort/shorts) and suitable sports shoes with non-marking soles and short white socks.
  • Hair – Hair on or below the shoulders must be tied back. Hair must be of a natural colour and extreme hairstyles are not permitted.
  • Makeup – Students will be asked to remove any excessive or obvious makeup. Only clear nail polish is to be worn.
  • Jewellery – The only jewellery permitted is a wristwatch and one pair of SMALL stud earrings, one in the lobe of each ear.

Exemption for religious reasons will be considered on a case by case basis. Parents should write a letter or email the school (Head of Primary or Head of Secondary) requesting such consideration. Any exempted jewellery must not be visible and must be removed for PE, sport and other activities where they could potentially be a hazard. The school is not responsible for the loss of these items after PE.

Non-uniform items – During times of particularly cold weather, non-uniform items may be worn to and from school. Once at school, however, only the official school uniform may be worn, regardless of the time of year.

Outside of school hours or designated school activities, students should change out of their uniform. No students should be outside of the College wearing their uniform on a casual basis unless they are with a parent.

We appreciate your ongoing support in ensuring that your child is in the correct uniform prior to leaving for school each day.
