Uniforms

 

Uniforms are compulsory for all Leighland Christian School students.  The reasons for school uniform are:

  • It creates an atmosphere of unity where students do not feel they have to compete with the latest fashion items.
  • Students are easily identified as being Leighland Christian School students when students are in the community.  It exhibits a feeling of pride and belonging.
  • It is meant to be an inexpensive alternative.

The wearing of full school uniform is therefore compulsory for all students.

Whenever the school uniform is worn-it is to be worn fully and correctly

If a student is unable to wear any item of the correct uniform on a particular day, an explanatory note should be sent by a parent.    This situation should not normally persist for more than a day or two.  Primary students should present this note to their Class teacher and Secondary students to the Head of Middle School or Head of Senior School before classes commence. 

Uniform items, apart from shoes, stockings, beanies, black trackpants (High School only) and Year 11/12 boys trousers and shorts; must be purchased from the School's uniform shop to ensure consistency.  These Year 11/12 items are to be purchased from Maveric Clothing, Reibey Street, Ulverstone.

Casual Clothes/Free Dress Days (unless different guidelines are advertised for the activity):       

  • Students are to wear smart, casual clothes suitable for attending school without inappropriate wording on the clothes.
  • Shoes must be fully enclosed shoes to cover the whole foot (no thongs or sandals).
  • Shoulders are to be fully covered with no bare mid-riffs or revealing neckline.
  • Normal hair, jewellery and make-up guidelines still apply.

Students dressed inappropriately will be given items to wear from pre loved clothing.  If the correct items cannot be found then parents will be contacted and students will be sent home.

Hair and Accessories:

  • Hair which is shoulder length or longer poses a safety and health risk and must be tied back. (Exceptions are made for Year 10/11/12 students). All ribbons, bobbles and head bands should be plain in design in either bottle green or black.
  • Sunglasses are encouraged to be worn at the risk and responsibility of the student.
  • Hair colouring in unnatural colours is not acceptable 

    (discretion lies with the Principal).

  • Scarves are acceptable in Terms 2 and 3-bottle green and black only.
