UNIFORM ORDERING USER GUIDE

To Order a Uniform

Shoes At St Paul’s College

The wearing of full school uniform is compulsory. It is important that all students wear our uniform and take pride in their appearance, as this is a very public way of exhibiting our Catholic identity.
Students are required to wear the full uniform to and from school and we ask that ‘parts’ of the uniform not be worn in public out of school hours.
If, for any reason, a student is unable to be in full school uniform they must have a note from parents explaining the problem and the expected day when the student will be back in full uniform. It is expected that this will be for only a short period of time.
Continued unwillingness to wear the school uniform correctly is showing a lack of school pride and in some instances lack of co-operation. It will result in a uniform lunch time detention and/or an after-school detention and may result in suspension.

If a student is unable to wear the full PE uniform to school on sports or sport prac day, then they must wear full school uniform to and from school, and change into the PE uniform they have for the two periods of sport.

During all swimming activities, swimming attire must be appropriate for the activity being undertaken for the time of year. Rash shirts and board shorts may be worn by students. Female students are not, under any circumstances, to wear string bikinis or the type of bikini’s used for sun baking. Sporting Bikinis will be allowed as in the type used in surf carnivals.

Uniform at Sports Carnivals

During all sporting carnivals (Athletics and Swimming), students in years 7-11 must be dressed in full College sports uniform with the option of wearing a House coloured T-shirt or polo shirt. Only year 12 students are permitted to attend dressed as novelty characters with modesty being a key requirement. This is not an out of uniform day. On these days, students are permitted to change into more appropriate competition attire only whilst they are competing. Containers of coloured sprays, dyes, coloured zinc etc. are not to be brought to carnivals.

Where the College uniform is not correct, the jersey will be removed until the uniform is corrected. Rugby type jerseys are not to be worn at official occasions such as; Mass and excursions, where the College is being represented.

HAIR

Hair accessories should be a plain design in black, blue or white.
Hairstyle is a matter that invites good taste and judgement as to appropriateness. The College has particular expectations in regards to hairstyles, which are to be adhered to. Allowing a student to adopt the latest fad or trend is not always consistent with both these points.
Parents are asked to ensure that their child’s hairstyle conforms to the following:

  • Hair should be neatly groomed and maintained at all times;
  • Extremes in hairstyles are unacceptable
  • Dramatic layered effect of levels are not permitted
  • Hair should not be overly styled by the use of hair products
  • Hair is not to be tinted or coloured in any colour other than that of a natural hair colour
  • Long hair must be kept neat and off the face. Long strands such as ‘rat’s tails’ are unacceptable as are dread locks.

The College Principal has the final say as to the appropriateness of a hairstyle.
Boys must be clean-shaven at all times.

Policy for Dress on ‘OUT OF UNIFORM’ Days

Parents and students are reminded that all clothing worn on these days must be appropriate. If a student arrives at school on one of these days in clothing deemed to be inappropriate, parents may be contacted and asked to collect the students in order to rectify the matter. It is inappropriate for brief and revealing clothing to be worn to school. This includes low-cut, strapless, backless or mid-riff tops, mini-skirts and brief shorts. Parents are also asked to consider the appropriateness of all writing and graphics on T-shirts.

Due to WHS regulations, sandals, thongs and other similar footwear may not be worn. All students must wear either joggers or some other kind of enclosed footwear.

If a student has a PE or Practical lesson then they must bring the correct shoes for that lesson, i.e. joggers for PE and school shoes for Practical lessons. Students, who have PE or Sport on these particular days, must bring their PE uniform with them.
