The full sports uniform should be worn on Fridays for all students in years 7 to 10. For cold weather the College tracksuit or College pullover should be worn, no other jumpers/shirts are acceptable.

Any student representing the College in Years 7 to 12, is expected to wear the full sports uniform to and from the activity.

PD/H/PE teachers will inform students when they are required to bring their sports uniform for practical lessons. On these occasions sports uniforms are worn only for that period.

Shoes

It is the student’s responsibility to maintain the correct shoes by polishing them frequently, inspections by Year Co-ordinators will take place throughout the year.

Light weight canvas shoes for sport are not acceptable as they do not provide suitable protection in Science and Technics classes.

Belts

Belts worn with either shorts or pants must be plain grey or black with a simple buckle. Patterned belts or those with logos are not appropriate. Suitable belts can be purchased from the uniform shop.

Hair and Grooming

Boys are expected to keep their hair well-groomed.  Hair is to be clean and neatly cut, off the collar, of their natural colour.  Extreme styles are not acceptable.  Styles are expected to be reasonably conservative and guided by common sense.  Examples of unacceptable styles include what are known as 'undercuts', 'layers', 'steps' and 'lines'.  Unacceptable styles also include any marked contrasts of length, for example, mullets, bowl cuts, rat's tails, Mohawk style cuts or shape, long fringes, excessive gel.  Students' hair must also not be cut shorter than a 'No 2'.  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 in the student’s minds concerning style of cut, they should consult the College before they have their hair cut. The judgement of the Deputy Principal and 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 your son shaves 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 are placing band-aids over piercings.

Jewellery

The College rule is that no jewellery is to be worn other than a watch. Studs in piercings are not acceptable, nor is placing band-aids over piercings.

Rings, bracelets, necklaces (other than a discrete Catholic image such as a small crucifix) are not allowed. Charity bands may be worn for a short period after the charity day but are not to become a permanent item.

School Bags

All students in Years 7 to 10 are required to purchase the College bag from the uniform shop. College bags must be used at all times including Friday sport days.

Students in Years 11 and 12 may use an appropriate backpack, predominately black or grey in colour.

Bags should be free of graffiti and be kept clean and in good repair.
