Those permitted to wear mufti (Year 12 and above) must ensure it is clean and tidy with appropriate footwear. Singlet type tops, jandals and clothing of an inappropriate or offensive nature are not acceptable. The management of the school, in its discretion, may decline to approve any item. Each Monday and on formal occasions senior students are required to wear the full dress uniform.
All students must be clean-shaven when attending the College whether they be in complete uniform or informal (mufti) dress.
Students’ hair must be a natural colour. Any extreme colours, or colours which are considered by the Board in its discretion to be unnatural hair colours, are not permitted. However, a student is permitted to have more than one hair colour at the same time provided that these colours give a natural appearance. Hair must be kept in a clean and tidy condition. Specific restrictions are not placed on hair length, or style. However, some cuts or styles may be deemed not to meet the requirements of cleanliness, tidiness, or appropriateness, or deemed unacceptable for cultural, religious, race or other reasons. Cuts or styles may be deemed to be offensive and prohibited, although they may not specifically be able to be categorised. The Principal or the Board of Trustees shall have the discretion to make a ruling in each case as may arise for interpretation. Hair ties must be in the school colours of forest green, or Cambridge blue, or Blue Watch tartan (the same material as the skirt).
Fringed scarves in the uniform colours (bottle green and sky blue) with alternating bands of each colour (each band of colour approximately 150mm thick) may be worn in the Winter: Terms 2 and 3.
Sunglasses may be worn outdoors only, from the beginning of September through until the end of April in the following year.
Bucket style hats are available from Post Plus in the House colours:
On sports days, if mufti is allowed for all students, and students are outside, any suitable hat may be worn. Beanies are prohibited at all times.
Absences from school must be advised by a letter or a telephone call giving the reason for the
absence. Notes should be brought on the day that your child returns to school. We appreciate
a telephone call if your child is going to be absent. If a student is injured or becomes ill during
the school day a staff member, trained in First Aid procedures, deals with the problem. We
always try to notify parents and arrange for sick students to be taken home as quickly as
possible. In the case of injury students are taken straight to the doctor and their parents
If students are to be away for matters other than illness we would appreciate notification and
discussion before the absence. Except for absences due to long term illness, work will not
normally be supplied. Catching up on missed work is the student’s responsibility.
Any concerns please contact out attendance officer Lynda Atchison – firstname.lastname@example.org
Students are expected to be punctual to school and to classes. Explanations for lateness are
accepted at the discretion of senior staff. Sleeping in is not an acceptable explanation for
