Grooming and Personal Appearance

All such uniform shall be kept clean, tidy and in good repair and worn correctly at all times. If for any reason a student is out of school uniform he must have a note of explanation signed by a Deputy Principal, the Assistant Principal or a Dean. Shoes or sandals need to be kept clean and polished and in a good state of repair. T-shirts, skivvies, skins and compression gear or singlets are not to be worn if they show above the shirt front.

With exception of a wrist watch and if required, a medical bracelet NO OTHER JEWELLERY IS TO BE WORN which includes rings, ear studs, earrings, bracelets and necklaces. Visible body piercing is not acceptable at this School.
Confiscated jewellery will be placed in safe custody and is to be picked up by the student or parent at an agreed time.

These may be worn on the inside of the shirt unless at a formal school function.

Tattoo and moko
These must be covered at all times. The Student Centre will provide a ‘material cover' for these.


A student's hair needs to be clean and short enough to ensure it does not touch his shirt collar. Hair should not be long enough to be tied up in any form. The student's fringe should be short enough to ensure hair is kept out of his eyes when combed straight down. Natural hair colour must be maintained (no dyed hair) and extreme hairstyles including but not restricted to Mohawk, afro, shaved patterns, braided hair, dreadlocks, rats tails, tufts of hair, undercuts are not permitted. Sideburns must not extend beyond the earlobe. Hair is not allowed to be tied up on top of or behind the head. This includes sports teams and cultural groups.

All students are to be clean shaven at all times including school trips.

Students who fail to meet the grooming or personal appearance may be removed from classes until the issue has been rectified.
