I wish to make the community aware of some changes to the School’s Uniform and Dress Code Regulations for 2017.

School Council has approved the establishment of a “Core Uniform” that is available for all students at the school.

The major changes to the Uniform that will be phased in for 2017 are:

  1. Girls may wear a new grey trouser in Winter and grey short in Summer.  These will be made of new material which will also be used for boys trousers and shorts.  These are still in the design process and will be available on announcement in 2017.
  2. Current Girls’ uniform items (kilt, pinafore, check trousers and summer dress) will continue to be available for students to wear.
  3. New shorts (cotton chino style) will be available for both boys and girls as an alternative to i).  These are still in the design process and will be available on announcement during 2017.
  4. Boys’ trousers in the current fabric will continue to be able to worn until the beginning of the 2020 academic year.
  5. Girls may wear in Winter black long socks instead of tights; so long as the hem of the Kilt or Pinafore is lower than the top of the sock.

Old logo uniform ceases for all but Year 12 students in 2017.  School Blazers may be converted to the new logo by the purchase of a new pocket from the uniform shop.  School bags with the old logo may continue to be used for up to another 3 years, if still in a serviceable condition.

All changes including specific items such as socks! will be documented in the 2017 Business Notice and the 2017 Junior and Senior School Diaries.

These changes are not earth shattering but will I think lift the general comfort and serviceability of our school uniform.  If you have any queries regarding uniform please contact the Principal’s Office.
