College Uniform

Students are expected to wear the correct Gleeson College uniform and to do so in a manner that signifies pride in both the College and their own personal appearance.  The correct uniform is to be worn on all occasions when attending the College or when representing the College.

We ask for the support of all families in ensuring that students present themselves appropriately attired in the correct uniform as outlined below.

*Uniform items can be purchased from either our onsite Totally Schoolwear store or the retail Totally Schoolwear store at Modbury.  Alternatively, our Second Hand Uniform Shop has a range of good quality items and is open every Tuesday after school from 3.30-4.30pm, and also available Monday to Friday via appointment by phoning the College on 8282 6600.

The College Leadership Team reserves the right at all times to make final decisions regarding uniform and grooming.

Grey shorts are an additional option but trousers are to be worn on all formal occasions. Grey school socks, with the maroon and white stripe, are to be worn with the shorts. Only black or charcoal grey belts with a plain buckle are permitted to be worn.

Winter:

Maroon blazer, maroon College jumper, long sleeved monogrammed white shirt worn tucked in, College tie, charcoal grey trousers, black leather upper lace up College shoes (not boots, sneakers, soft shoes or suede shoes) and grey socks.

The complete sports uniform can be worn to the College on days that students have Practical Physical Education lessons. During the second and third term on days that students have Practical Physical Education lessons and wear Sport uniform to school, the College track pants and College rugby top must be worn as the outer garment.

All students must adhere to the following requirements:

Hair:

Hair styling is also part of the College uniform and must be kept in a clean, neat and tidy manner at all times. Hairstyles are to be moderate and not extreme, or what might be termed cult hairstyles. Hair below collar length or which falls or has the potential to fall over the eyes must be tied up. Short hairstyles including undercuts may employ nothing less than a No 3 comb. Artificially coloured hair (other than in natural colours), brightly coloured streaks, highlights or obvious variations in colour, for example blonde on top layers with brown/black on the lower layers are not permitted. Items used to restrain hair must be maroon, grey, brown or black and accessories such as flowers, feathers and wide headbands are not permitted. Hair extensions and braided hair are not permitted unless prior approval is sought from the Principal. Facial hair and excessive side burns, below the middle of the ear, are not permitted.

Jewellery/Make-up:

A fine silver or gold chain that bears a Christian religious symbol may be worn and one simple ring on each hand is permitted. The ring should not be large, obvious or of a cult nature. A student with pierced ears may wear only two simple gold or silver studs (no larger in diameter than 4mm) or sleepers (no larger than a 5 cent piece) in any part of the ear.  No other visible piercings or clear coverings of piercings are permitted. This includes piercing of the tongue, lip or nose. It is worth stressing to students that if they have piercings done that do not meet the guidelines as set out in this policy, they will not be allowed to keep their studs/sleepers in 'so the hole won't close over', even with a bandaid applied.  Students are permitted to wear only one slim gold/silver bracelet or solid gold/silver bangle. Silicone bracelets are not permitted.  Nail polish, and finger nails that could impede curriculum activities, are not permitted.  Similarly, obvious make-up, including foundation, eye shadow and mascara/eyeliner are not permitted.  Body art and undergarments should not be visible.

Blazer:

During Terms 2 and 3, the blazer must be worn to and from school.  The College jumper is never to be worn as the outer garment outside of the school grounds during these two terms. The blazer must also be the outer garment worn to assemblies and liturgies, on excursions and at any other formal occasions in Terms 2 and 3. During the first and fourth term, the jumper may be worn as an outer garment to or from school.  Guidelines for the wearing of the Year 12 Jumper will be developed in consultation between the Student Leadership Executive and the Principal.

*A new blazer with white braid was introduced in 2018 and will be phased in for new Year 7 and Year 8 students from this time forward.

College Bag:

All students are required to use a maroon Gleeson College backpack. The bag remains in the student's locker throughout the course of the day.  Students are not to carry 'handbags' to and around the College.  If students need to carry a second bag for additional College related items (e.g. sporting uniform) then this must also be maroon.

Sun Protection:

Gleeson College strongly recommends that students wear a Gleeson College hat when outside at recess, lunch or during lessons throughout the year where they have chosen to work, rest or exercise while exposed to direct Ultraviolet Radiation (UVR). Ultraviolet radiation (UVR) is the part of sunlight which causes sunburn and skin damage leading to premature ageing and skin cancer. Please ensure your Gleeson College hat is adequately labelled with your name.  Sun cream for students is available on request from the Student Office.  Gleeson College encourages the use of sunglasses which comply with the Australian Standards AS/NZ1067:2003.  Gleeson College takes no responsibility for sunglasses which may be stolen or damaged.
