MENUMENU

SCHOOL UNIFORM

UNIFORM POLICY

The College community regards the uniform as an important part of the College’s image and general philosophy. College Council has clear powers in this area, and the College Uniform Dress Code takes precedence over a student’s individual preference in matters of dress. On enrolment of their child, parents sign an agreement that they will comply with the College’s Uniform policy and the Student Code of Conduct. The Student Code of Conduct applies while the students are within the College, while attending College activities, excursions or special nights and while travelling to and from College.
