Girls at Matthew Flinders Girls Secondary College wear white socks with their summer dresses, and either blue socks or tights with their winter kilts. They have been reminded to buckle their t-bars on a regular basis.

The shoes are to be black school shoes, either: black lace-up school shoes or T Bars. Ballet shoes are not school shoes and are not to be worn to school. T Bar shoes must be buckled at all times due to Occupational, Health and Safety requirements. As a staff team, this will be closely monitored. Students need to remember that “your actions count.” This can be demonstrated by wearing appropriate uniform.

We ask all families to ensure that the shoes worn to school are in good order and done up correctly
