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.

No other garments are to be worn with the uniform - in particular, polo neck skivvies under shirts, T-shirts under open neck shirts and no jumpers or hoodies. 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 must be worn as the outer garment with either the rugby top and/or tracksuit jacket.

   

SUN PROTECTION > In response to current information about the harmful effects of the sun on the skin and one's personal well-being, at Gleeson College all students are expected to wear the College bucket hat or cap when they are participating in any activity in the sun as well as for the Physical Education lessons that are conducted outside. Hence all students are required to have the College bucket hat or cap. Sun protection is encouraged any time students are outdoors (See Gleeson College Sun Protection Policy).

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 extreme of style, for example, 'rat's tails'.  Hair below collar length or which falls or has the potential to fall across the eyes must be tied up (clips and headbands are not sufficient). Short hairstyles, including undercuts, may employ nothing less than a No. 3 comb.

Artificially coloured hair other than in natural colour is not permitted; this includes brightly coloured streaks or highlights and obvious variations in colour, which draw attention. 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 is 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 > 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 no more than two simple gold or silver studs or sleepers in each lower earlobe.  No other visible piercings or clear coverings of piercings are permitted. This includes piercing of the tongue. It is worth stressing to students that if they have piercings done that do not meet the guidelines as set out in the College policy, they will not be allowed to keep their studs/sleepers in 'so the hole won't close over', even with a band-aid applied.  Students are permitted to wear only one slim gold/silver bracelet or solid gold/silver bangle. Silicone bracelets are not permitted.

MAKEUP > 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 the second and third term, the blazer must be worn to and from school. The College jumper is never worn as the outer garment outside of the school grounds during these two terms. The blazer must be the outer garment worn to and from school, to assemblies and liturgies, on excursions and on 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.

*A new blazer with white braid edging was introduced in 2018.  All new Year 7, 8 and 9 students are required to purchase the new College blazer with white braid.  Please note that Devon are happy to update second hand blazers by applying the white braid at a cost of $35.

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.  It is the responsibility of students to keep safe any personal items brought to the College.
