Uniform and Grooming

uniform-and-grooming

LaSalle Catholic College focuses on the development of the whole person – the individual within, the individual as a member of the College community and the individual who interacts in the wider community.

The College sees the maintenance of high uniform standards as crucial to developing a sense of belonging and a sense of both personal and collegial pride within each student.

For the Girls

The girls’ College uniform consists of a white College shirt and the College kilt, which is to be worn just below the knee. In summer, girls may choose to purchase a summer tunic. The tunic is to be worn just below the knee.

Blazer:  The College blazer is compulsory in Terms 2 and 3.

Jumper:  The bottle green College jumper or cardigan is optional but it is not to be worn to and from school unless under the College blazer.

Under Garments: T-shirts, spencers or singlets are not to be worn underneath the uniform if they are visible above the collar. If a t-shirt or singlet is worn under the uniform, the only acceptable colour is white and must be without any logos or advertising of any kind.

Shoes:  School shoes are to be black leather shoes (traditional style, not soft leather). They must be low heeled, black lace up shoes that can be polished. Shoes that have a heel that exceeds 3cm in height will not be allowed to be worn as school shoes as they do not comply with Occupational Health and Safety standards.

Socks and Stockings:  Girls are required to wear ankle length bottle green socks (in summer). The socks are to be folded so that the fold is above the top of the shoe. Anklets of any sort are NOT part of the uniform. This also applies for the sports uniform.  College coloured stockings (70-denier opaque black tights) are permitted in winter.

Scarf and Other Headwear:   A plain black scarf can be worn in Terms 2 and 3.  No headgear is to be worn, other than the College cap for sun protection during sport.

For the Boys

Shirt:  The white College shirt (of the correct size) must be tucked in at all times. Shirts are to be worn in the traditional business style.

Tie:  LaSalle ties are worn as part of the winter uniform. For students in Years 7-10, no ties are required in summer.

Trousers:  Students are required to wear tailored grey trousers. Trousers of the correct grey colour and the correct length and waist size are to be purchased at Lowes. No baggy trousers are acceptable and trousers that are too long may be required to be turned up at the hem. Trousers are to be worn with a plain black belt with a plain buckle. No brand names are acceptable.

Blazer:  The College blazer is compulsory in Terms 2 and 3.

Jumper:  The bottle green College jumper is optional but it is not to be worn to and from school, unless under the blazer.

Under garments:  T-shirts are not to be worn underneath shirts so that the collar of the T-shirt is above the collar of the school shirt.  If a T-shirt is worn under the shirt, the only acceptable colour is white without logos or advertising of any nature.

Shoes:  Boys are required to wear black leather, traditional style school shoes, not soft leather shoes. Shoes must be black lace up and able to be polished.

Socks:  The College socks are to be worn.

Scarf and Other Headwear:  A plain black scarf can be worn in Terms 2 and 3. The College cap is the only form of acceptable headwear.
