We believe it is important that our students are always dressed correctly and only wear items on the uniform list. We know this will give our students a sense of belonging and create an identity for the College in the community. Full school uniform is to be worn between College and home, both ways.
Hair must be neatly presented, off the face, a natural colour, tidy and tied back (green / navy / black hairbands) when longer than the collar. Extreme hairstyles are not permitted – all haircuts and colour are at the Principal’s discretion.
A wrist watch, and one plain stud or sleeper in each ear are permitted. No other piercings allowed.
Cultural / Religious Taonga
Taonga that carries cultural and / or religious significance are permitted and can be worn proudly.
Natural makeup for basic skin coverage is permitted only. No other makeup is allowed, including nail polish.
Facial hair is not permitted.
Tattoos (except those that have cultural and / or religious significance) that would be visible when the summer or winter uniform is worn, are not permitted.
A student with a uniform problem must bring a signed note from a parent / caregiver and obtain a uniform pass from the Tutor Teacher. This must be done before the school day begins. Otherwise, an after school service may be issued.
Recommendations made with respect to the modification of the Uniform Policy itself, including, but not limited to the inclusion of a skort, shorts and trouser options for girls. These recommendations require further review due to the implications to our uniform suppliers.
