Thank you to all families for your support of your children with your ongoing attention to shoes and jewellery and for ensuring that shoes are plain black leather shoes/joggers. When buying shoes for your student for 2019, please ensure they meet uniform requirements.  Despite any other information you might be given, shoes of any colour other than plain black with black soles and laces are not acceptable.  Also, canvas shoes do not meet basic Workplace Health and Safety regulations and are simply not acceptable.  Facial piercings of any sort are also not part of our uniform and dress code and any student returning to school in 2019 with a facial piercing will need to remove it while at school.
