We have an attractive, easy-to-wear uniform, and require the correct uniform to be worn while travelling to and from the College, at school and attending school functions.
Those permitted to wear mufti (Year 12 and above) must ensure it is clean and tidy with appropriate footwear. Singlet type tops, spaghetti straps, jandals and clothing of an inappropriate or offensive nature are not acceptable.
The management of the school, in its discretion, may decline to approve any item.
Each Monday and on formal occasions senior students are required to wear the full dress uniform.
All students must be clean-shaven when attending the College whether they be in complete uniform or informal (mufti) dress.
Students’ hair should be a natural colour. Any extreme colours, or colours which are considered by the Board in its discretion to be unnatural hair colours, are to be avoided.
Hair must be kept in a clean and tidy condition. Specific restrictions are not placed on hair length or style. However, some cuts, styles or colours may be deemed not to meet the requirements of cleanliness, tidiness, or appropriateness, or deemed unacceptable for cultural, religious, race or other reasons. Cuts or styles may be deemed to be offensive and prohibited, although they may not specifically be able to be categorised.
The Principal or the Board of Trustees shall have the discretion to make a ruling in each case as may arise for interpretation.
Hair ties should be in the school colours of forest green, or Cambridge blue, or Blue Watch tartan (the same material as the skirt).
Fringed scarves in uniform colours (bottle green and sky blue) with alternating bands of each colour (each band of colour approximately 150mm thick) may be worn.
Sunglasses may be worn outdoors
Bucket style hats are available from the Warehouse in Blenheim, in the House colours:
Aramoana – Red Rangatira – Blue Tamahine – Green
On sports days, if mufti is allowed for all students, and students are outside, any suitable hat may be worn. School Beanies are allowed to be worn.
School monogrammed caps and beanies are also available.
Plain black school shoes lace-up or buckled, (flat-soled and heeled walking shoes) or plain black sandals (which must have heel strap) shall be worn by all uniformed students.
The only jewellery items which should be worn are:
o Up to two plain gold or silver keepers or studs in each earlobe
o No other form of body piercing is permitted
The jewellery requirements and limitations apply to all students whether they are in, complete uniform or informal (mufti) dress.
To assist with the recovery of lost property, all articles should be clearly named.
