SJRC Uniform - Code of Presentation

St Joseph's Regional College Code of Presentation is a “Door to Door” policy. Students are required to wear the appropriate College uniform correctly from the time of departure from home each morning until arrival home at the end of the day. Outside of College hours, students should either remain in their full uniform or out of it completely.

Students will wear the formal College uniform on school days except when they are engaged in a lesson or school-related activity which requires the full College sport uniform to be worn. Students are permitted to wear sports uniform to and from school on their sports day, for PD/H/PE practical lessons and for other elective practical lessons, as negotiated with their teacher eg. Marine Studies, PASS, Dance or Drama practical lessons.

Sport uniforms may also be worn to school on days when school sport teams train or organised sports competitions occur.

Dreadlocks, undercuts, mullets, tracks or lines, skin fades, rats tails and dramatic layered effects are not permitted. Students should not use dye or blonding compounds in their hair, except for natural highlights that are natural to the individual student’s own hair colour. Hair should be cut in such a way that it does not hang over the student’s face.

Junior students’ long hair should be tied up if it is collar length or longer.

Senior students’ can wear hair out if it is longer than collar length but must tie it back at all times in practical lessons and sporting activities.

All hair accessories must be of black, blue, white or gold (ribbons of a single colour or narrow headbands). Students must have a clean-shaven face at all times.

Tattoos are strongly discouraged and should not be visible while wearing the school uniform or representing the College.

Out of Uniform Days
Parents and students are reminded that all clothing worn on these days must be appropriate. If a student arrives at the College 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 midriff tops, mini-skirts and brief shorts. Parents are also asked to consider the appropriateness of all writing and graphics on T-shirts. The normal rules for make-up, jewellery and piercing apply.

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

Brief bikinis and brief one-piece styles are not permitted to be worn at swimming carnivals, during classes such as Marine Studies, for proficiency swims or at beach activities. If modesty is deemed to be required, boardshorts, swim shorts and/or a rash shirt will be necessary.

Students not presenting in the correct College uniform will receive an infringement.

It is at the discretion of the Principal as to acceptable uniform and grooming. Upon enrolment at the College, students and parents agreed on the importance of grooming and wearing the College uniform correctly and with pride. Parents may be requested to bring uniform items to the College to rectify reoccurring issues.
