Uniform & Appearance

It was pleasing to see so many boys returning to school this week in their uniforms and being so well presented. We are grateful to parents/guardians for their assistance in resolving any small issues with regard to uniform, hair and jewellery that might have arisen. By now all those issues should have been resolved and we would expect all boys to be well attired and presented each day.

Printed below is an excerpt from the College Planner regarding expectations. If parents have any questions please do not hesitate to contact your son’s homeroom mentor in the first instance or the Head of House/Year Level Coordinator.

All students have a responsibility to:

o wear their uniform correctly, neatly and proudly at all times

o refrain from adopting extreme fashions in dress, hairstyles and appearance, and avoid the wearing of jewellery

Hair
