The uniform of St. Mel’s College is very much part of our identity as a community and it reflects the personal attitude of the student towards himself and his school community. All students are expected to attend school wearing the full uniform properly and to be neat and tidy in appearance. Students must be in full uniform when being admitted to class. The wearing of the correct and complete uniform is an important part of school discipline. The school uniform consists of the following
- Blue Jumper with school crest
- Blue Shirt
- School Tie
- Grey Trousers
- Black Shoes
- School Jacket with crest
The onus is on parents and students to ensure that the proper and complete uniform is worn at all times. Students should present a neat and tidy appearance in school. The collar of the shirt must be worn turned down and the tie worn under the collar. The tie should have a conventional knot and the knot should be clearly visible over the jumper neckline. Hair must be worn in manner that presents an overall clean tidy appearance.
T-shirts or other multicoloured items of clothing will be not be permitted. No part of the uniform may be defaced in any way. Jackets, sweat-shirts coats etc, may not be worn in class or substituted for the proper school jumper.
Full school uniform must always be worn in school and at any school event such as debates, quizzes, football games, school tours etc.
Any variances are at the discretion of the Principal.
