Girls at Catholic College Bendigo were banned from wearing t-bar school shoes commencing in 2018, with existing students given a one year grace period. They wear black shoes and navy socks with both their summer and winter uniforms.

Families are also reminded about the announcement at the end of last year regarding the move for all students, irrelevant of year level, to be in black polishable leather lace up shoes for 2018.
The T-bar shoes have been prone to breaking and are often not worn with the buckles done up.
Lace up shoes also provide a consistent look for all students.
