Students should negotiate with parents whether or not they can wear makeup. Discrete makeup will not be questioned. Any student wearing heavy makeup will be asked to remove it. Jewellery should be minimal. Long chains and hoops should not be worn to school as these pose as safety risk in many learning areas such as Technologies, Science and Physical Education. Long hair that is not tied back may also be a safety risk in these subjects. Students will be instructed to ties back loose hair in unsafe situations.

Students out of Uniform

Students not in uniform will be asked to change into a loan uniform if one is available. If no loan uniform is available parents will be contacted to either bring the correct uniform to the college for their child to wear or for permission, in writing via a text message or email, for the student to go home to get changed. In cases where the student is unable to change into correct uniform they will be isolated at recess and lunch for the day they are in incorrect uniform.
