Uniforms and Haircuts

Most of our students wear their uniform wish a sense of pride.  I am grateful to our parents for sending the children to school tidy and smartly dressed.  From time to time, however, we see students attending school with the incorrect uniform or looking untidy.  In particular, I am noticing a varied collection of coloured hair accessories and a variety of earrings and sport shoes.  The Uniform Policy requirements are:

  • Earrings must be simple studs or sleepers.
  • Hair accessories colours are blue and yellow. Faction colours can be worn with faction polo.
  • Sport shoes are trainers, not basketball shoes. Students attending after school basketball need to bring their basketball shoes to school to change in to.

Radical haircuts are not appropriate for school.  This includes shaved stripes and designs.  Please keep these for the long summer holidays when there is time for them to grow out.
