Kilbreda College Mentone banned t-bar school shoes from Term 1, 2007 onwards. Having to wear brown school shoes instead of the more common black, various Harrison lace ups are the most popular, along with the various copycat brands.
Buying new school shoes in the holidays? Don’t forget that dark brown lace-ups are now regulation. All girls are expected to be wearing lace-ups in 2007.
Please ensure that your daughter’s Winter uniform is
correct before she wears it. This includes brown lace up shoes (when replacing T-bar shoes)
LACE UP SHOES 2007
In 2005 the College notified parents that parts of the school uniform would be changing in 2007. All students from Years 7-12 are reminded that lace up shoes will be required. This term is the final term for T-bars
Keeping Up Appearances – Facing up to Lacing Up
In 2005 the word went out that Kilbreda was changing to lace up shoes. As we approach that dead-line students are attempting to prolong the lives of their T-bar shoes. Electrical tape and masking tape are appearing as students refuse to send their shoes to T-bar heaven. The school is not being well served by students who refuse to consider ‘keeping up appearances’.
The staff are grateful to see families who supported our change to lace up shoes. From discussions last year the staff feel it is imperative to insist upon school uniform being worn correctly.
Sacred Heart College Geelong banned t-bar school shoes from Term 1, 2011 onwards. Various Harrison lace ups are the most popular, along with the various copycat brands.
One change that will affect all students in 2011 is the decision to phase out the T-Bar Sandals. We have given the students endless opportunities to wear these correctly to no avail. As from 2011 T-Bars will no longer be part of the Sacred Heart College uniform. Black lace-up school shoes will be required in all year levels, including 2011 Year 12s, from the start of the school year. If your daughter requires new shoes in 2010 please consider this advance notice.
Another reminder that all students are required to wear black lace up school shoes from the start of 2011. Please keep this in mind if your daughter needs her shoes replaced before the end of 2010. A sample of suitable black lace up school shoes is on display at Reception if anyone is in doubt about what shoes to purchase.
Canterbury Girls Secondary College banned t-bar school shoes from Term 1, 2012 onwards. Year 7 girls were expected to be in lace up school shoes from 2011.
A number of girls continue to wear their shoes unlaced or Tbars unbuckled. This poses a safety risk as the school has a number of stairs and we do not wish the students to fall and hurt themselves. Parents are requested to ensure students are wearing their uniform correctly and that their shoes are replaced if worn out and/or irreparable.
A reminder that on the basis of safety and parent and staff feedback, last year School Council decided that the wearing of T-bars will be phased out in this college. From the beginning of this year all Year 7 students were expected to wear black leather lace up school shoes.
From the beginning of 2012 all year levels will be expected to be in black leather lace up school shoes in the traditional school style with a defined heel. The sneaker style leather shoe, flat soled, suede, desert boots and flimsy styles are NOT permitted.
Please keep this in mind when you are shopping for school shoes.
