Uniform


The Aquinas College uniform is part of the school’s proud tradition. It gives students a sense of belonging and creates a college identity in the community.

Students are expected to wear the full school uniform correctly, neatly and proudly at all times and maintain a high standard of grooming.

Students with the incorrect uniform must bring a signed note from a parent/caregiver and obtain a uniform pass from their Dean. This must be done before school starts.
