Transforming a school dress for muck up day

How does a young lady transform her boring old school dress into something fantastic for muck up day?

farmgatecreations.blogspot.com.au/2011/10/muck-up-day.html

When you do year 12 out our secondary college and the year draws to an end the students have what they call a muck up week.

Tuesday & Thursday is for dressing up in a costume that starts with a letter from one of your initials.

Wednesday you transform your uniform into what ever you like and then get your fellow peers to graffiti it. Friday is to PARTY and graduation.

We started with this…..

Using only theses materials which we had purchased earlier…..

And ended up with a skirt and top.

The back of the skirt it has a big bow….

Bentleigh Secondary College boys in short school dresses

An annual tradition for year 12 students is dressing up for ‘Muck Up Day’. Some boys at Bentleigh Secondary College ran afoul of the school’s uniform regulations, by wearing summer dresses that were too short.

Bentleigh Secondary College boys wearing dresses ordered to change or go home at Year 12 muck-up day

Boys who wore dresses to their Year 12 muck-up day were pulled out of class and ordered to change or go home, students claim.

Yet, girls who dressed in the boys’ uniform at Bentleigh Secondary College were allowed to remain, they say.

The Herald Sun has been told up to 40 boys turned up to school in dresses for the Year 12s’ last day of classes this morning.

“In first period they collected all the boys and told them they either had to get changed or go home,” said one student, who asked not to be named.

“They could stay (at school) but they had to put shorts on underneath.”

But most of the boys did not have shorts, he said, and one boy in his class went home.

In a statement, the school said students were asked to wear shorts underneath after complaints over the length of their dresses.

However, girls who wear dresses at the school are not forced to wear shorts.

Bentleigh Secondary College principal Helene Hiotis said “not a single student has been disciplined or sent home for wearing dresses to school today”.

“A number of male students who wore dresses to school today as part of muck-up day activities were simply asked to tone down their outfits following complaints by other students,” she said.

But the teen said some students had been troubled by the message the school had sent in its ruling.

“A few kids at our school are LGBTIQ — we’re a Safe School, we’ve even got a poster of a guy wearing a dress encouraging people to wear what they’re comfortable in,” he said.

“There’s a few students disappointed in the school and a few upset about making the guys change.

“I think (the length of the dresses) as an excuse is quite poor, to be honest.”

Another student labelled the muck-up day uniform swap, where boys wear dresses and girls wear shorts, as “a year 12 tradition for their last day of classes”.

“This is an issue as Bentleigh is meant to be a progressive school and this whole ordeal have (sic) disrupted learning more than anything,” he said.

Ms Hiotis said the matter had “nothing to do with Safe Schools”.

“Bentleigh Secondary College prides itself on being a safe and inclusive environment for all its students,” she said.

Victorian Equal Opportunity and Human Rights Commissioner Kristen Hilton said anyone who felt discriminated against because of their sex, gender identity or personal characteristics could contact the Commission.

“Schools must ensure that student dress codes protect students against discrimination and uphold human rights requirements,” she said.

Winter kilts at Matthew Flinders Girls Secondary College

Is North Geelong Secondary College stealing their new uniform?

In 2010 North Geelong Secondary College revealed plans for a new school uniform. Students got wind of the plan and accused the school of stealing the uniform design used by another school.

August 2010

http://ngscgossip.blogspot.com.au/2010/08/is-north-geelong-stealing.html

is North Geelong stealing?

well, we all know the rumor that North Geelong is changing their uniform from bland of green,white and brown to something a little spicier, using the color’s red, black and white.
But, is North Geelong, the school of many talents stealing?
The picture above indicates that the uniform that was chosen specifically for ‘NGSC’ is acually, the uniform of another school!!

The students got things half right. The uniform wasn’t stolen from Williamstown High School. But the winter skirt design is the same as Mt Alexander College.

New uniform at Newcomb Secondary College

In 2013 Newcomb Secondary College in Geelong introduced a new school uniform. Green is now the predominant colour. This replaced the brown that once featured alongside.

http://www.newcombsc.vic.edu.au/parents/uniform

With the introduction of the new College uniform in 2013 there was a two year period of grace, during which time students could wear new, old or combination of uniform items. We are now approaching the end of that two year transition period and it is timely to remind all families that students are expected to be wearing the new College uniform for the beginning of the 2015 school year.

Girls uniform

  • Summer dress is a green, blue and white check
  • Tailored navy blue pants or dress shorts
  • New winter skirt will be wash and wear with three box pleats front and back. The colour will be bottle green and navy tartan
  • White collared, button up, straight edge school shirts to be worn with shorts, pants and the winter skirt.
  • Navy Blue Wool blend jumper with College Logo, and bottle green and white stripes on the neck band.
  • Optional Navy Blue Blazer with College Logo and tie (bottle green, navy and white)
  • Black polishable leather or leather look shoes- with laces or buckle. Black skate style shoes may be worn if they are all black, including the laces, with no coloured markings. Slip-on, canvas or ballet style shoes will not be accepted.
  • White knee length or crew socks with summer dress, shorts or skirt
  • Navy blue stockings or tights can be worn with the winter skirt

New uniform at MFGSC

In 2015 Matthew Flinders Girls Secondary College in Geelong introduced a new school uniform. The existing blue, red and white colours were retained, as was the tartan pattern used on the winter skirt. However the school logo on the blazer and jumper was simplified, a white blouse replaced the previous blue, and a new summer dress design introduced, reusing the tartan pattern seen on the winter skirt.

November 2013

The school uniform – both the quality of it and the wearing of it – has been an issue raised by students, teachers and parents as something for us to focus on in the immediate future. The way the uniform is worn, rightly or wrongly, is how many in our local community judge our school. When the uniform is worn well, people consider the discipline and learning in a school to be of high quality. We also want our girls to take pride in their school and to learn that observing the professional expectations of organisational life is an important part of building community as well as excellent preparation for future employment.

Given these perceptions and understandings, we plan to review the existing uniform and uniform policy in 2014. Students, parents and teachers will be invited to contribute to this thinking. This will be done in the first half of the year so that changes can be made for the following year. Any changes will be phased in over time so that costs are reduced for parents.

Dear Parents

As you will be aware, we are currently reviewing the College uniform and uniform policy. Our Assistant Principal, Ms Fiona Taylor, is leading this process and we thank those of you who have provided us with very helpful and constructive feedback throughout the consultation process.

Year 7 Uniform (2015 onwards)

Year 8 -12 Uniform (2015 -2018) Students may wear the uniform outlined below or choose to wear the new school uniform which will be phased into the school over the next 3 years. Combinations of the new and old uniform are not preferred but will be permitted during the transition period

The incoming Year 7 students have the new school uniform and it looks very smart. The remainder of the school has three years to transition to the new uniform. In the meantime, there will be a hybrid of the old and the new for these students.

April 2015

All students in the new uniform are now required to have their blazers.
