Uniform

Students at MacKillop Catholic College wear a uniform to connect them to their school community. It demonstrates a sense of belonging and pride in their school. Wearing a school uniform correctly instils students with a positive attitude towards their presentation in professional environments.

Uniform Expectations

An outward sign of success

All students are required to wear the regulation school uniform. Students must arrive at and leave from the College correctly dressed in full uniform. If the uniform is worn in public places outside of school hours, it must be worn complete and correctly.

Generally, all uniform items, with the exception of footwear, are available from the MacKillop Catholic College Uniform Shop. Regulation dress uniforms are embroided with the College Crest.

Name Tags

All clothing and accessories must be clearly labelled with your son or daughter’s name.

School Bag

Must have a handle so as it can hang on a hook.

Dry Season / Winter Wear

In cooler weather, students may wear a plain long sleeve navy poly/cotton fleecy V-neck pullover or navy zip jacket.

Jewellery

The only jewellery permissible is a watch, ear studs/sleepers (one stud/sleeper per ear) and a religious medal on a simple neck chain. Only with written permission of the Principal is a signet ring which has historical or sentimental value permitted.

Hats

All students must wear the regulation hat when travelling to or from school, participating in any school excursion or function, outdoor sporting activity or any other outdoor activity outdoors. The College hat is a compulsory part of the uniform. A “no hat no play” policy is in place.

Out of Uniform Procedure

All students out of uniform must present a permission note to their teacher, dated and signed by their parent/guardian, which explains why the item of uniform is not being worn.

Casual Days

Casual days are held occasionally to raise funds for worthy causes such as Caritas Australia. No singlets, midriffs or thongs are permitted on these days. Parents are reminded of the College’s Sun Smart Policy (available on our website), and are asked to supervise the selection of clothing worn on these days. The regular uniform school hat is a compulsory item to be worn every day of the school year including casual clothes days.

Hair Policy

Short hair should be neat and tidy.

Shoulder length hair should be neatly tied back with a blue, grey, ochre or navy hair tie.

Extreme hairstyles and dying of hair are not permitted.
