Boys are expected to keep their hair well-groomed. Hair is to be clean and neatly cut, above and off the collar, of natural colour, of even grade and all extreme styles avoided. Styles are expected to be reasonably conservative and guided by common sense.
Examples of unacceptable styles include cuts known as undercuts, severe layers or steps, lines, pony tails, marked contrasts of length, for example, rat’s tails, Mohawk style cuts or shape, long fringes, excessive gel. This list is not exhaustive.
Ultimately the College Executive will determine if a cut is acceptable for the appropriate image that the College wishes to present to the community. Action will follow against those boys who are not complying with College rules and no correspondence will be entered into. If there is any doubt concerning style of cut, students should consult the Deputy Principal or the Director of Pastoral Care, before they have their hair cut. The judgement of the Deputy Principal and/or the Director of Pastoral Care is final.
Boys are expected to be clean shaven at all times. If unshaven the Deputy Principal or Director of Pastoral Care may insist that students shave at school with supplied shaving equipment. Sideburns should not extend past the lobe of the ear.
Spray on deodorants are not permitted at the College, but boys are encouraged to bring roll-on deodorants to their sports and PDHPE classes.
Students, who choose to have tattoos, must keep them covered while in College uniform. Studs in piercings are not acceptable, nor is placing band-aids over piercings.
