Student Uniforms

McAuley Catholic College students are expected to show pride in the College by wearing the school uniform correctly.  Wearing of a school uniform is important for several academic, social and safety reasons. Most importantly, wearing a school uniform promotes a sense of identity and respect for the school. Wearing a uniform encourages school spirit and a sense of belonging and pride. It removes competitiveness and class distinction in dress and lessens ‘financial’ barriers between students.  In this regard, it can help to reduce incidences of bullying and peer pressure. Additionally, wearing a uniform creates a sense of orderliness throughout the school. It also models behaviour by helping students to prepare for when they leave school and may have to dress smartly or wear a uniform. For parents and caregivers, it cuts down on cost as well as providing protection against the harmful rays of the sun. Furthermore, a school uniform can improve learning by reducing distraction, sharpening focus on schoolwork and making the classroom a more serious environment, allowing students to perform better academically.

UNIFORM EXPECTATIONS

All students are expected to:

  • Wear correct school uniform each day with pride.
  • Label all uniform items with the student name
  • Keep uniform items, including hats, free of graffiti or paint.
  • Wear Sports uniform on Thursdays.
  • Wear correct uniform when representing the College eg special events, sporting events and excursions

SCHOOL HATS AND CAPS

The College has a Sun-Protection Policy in which the dangers of exposure to the sun and the requirements of the school are pointed out. Students should wear hats or caps at all times when they are exposed to the sun. These can be purchased from the Main Office. There are 2 types to select from: blue cap and maroon bucket hat.
