Additional items:
  • Plain blue nylon apron (For all students in Years 7 & 8 and those who have opted for Food in Years 10 - 11)
  • Black uniform for Hair & Beauty (Only if opted for in Years 10 & 11)

Hair, makeup and piercings:
  • Hair must be a ‘natural’ colour. [eg. not shaved].
  • Make up should be light and natural.
  • Only one pair of stud type earrings may be worn.
  • No other piercings are allowed.

* School trousers should be tailored and loose fitting. The general rule of thumb is ‘they should be loose enough to allow a coin to be dropped in the waistband and if fall freely to the floor’.
