A uniform dress code fosters pride in appearance, instils recognition of the pupils as an integral part of the community. It assists in developing pride in representing St Cecilia’s College. Issue of equality, health and safety, and expense are also factors that contribute to the establishment of our Dress Code.
To promote equality amongst all students.
To further develop a sense of pride in, and identification with our school.
To provide durable clothing that is cost effective and practical for our school environment.
To maintain and enhance the positive image of the school in the community.
The Dress Code applies during school hours, while travelling to and from school and when students are on school organised activities.
Parents seeking exemptions to the Dress Code due to religious beliefs, ethnic or cultural background, student disability, health condition or economic hardship must apply in writing to the Principal.
It is the responsibility of pupils to ensure that all uniform items are clearly labelled.
