Classic uniforms at Siena College Camberwell

Siena College launched their current school uniform in 2012. It replaced the previous uniform that featured brown lace up school shoes, a pink dress and fawn knee socks in summer, and a brown skirt with brown tights in winter.

Commencing in 2013, all students new to the College will be required to wear the new uniform. The next two years until the start of 2015 provided a transition period for current students to change to the new uniform.

New uniform at Siena College

It is with much pleasure that I introduce the new Siena College uniform. It is the result of eighteen months of planning and consultation and was designed to reflect the history and Dominican tradition of Siena College and to serve the College well into the future.

The distinctive, rust blazer has been retained as the one constant feature of all the uniform changes across the seventy-two year history of Siena College. It reflects the rich, rust coloured soils of Siena in Italy, the birthplace of our patron, St Catherine of Siena. The rust colour is also a symbolic link between Siena and the red soil at the centre of Australia. The new colours of black and white connect our community to Dominicans around the world.

In developing the new uniform, we have been guided by Francis Stewart from our uniform supplier, Bob Stewart. Francis’ expertise and advice based on many years of experience has been invaluable. I thank the members of the Uniform Committee and all who offered advice and suggestions. Thanks to this dedicated team and the contribution of current and past students, staff, parents and Dominican Sisters, we now have a modern, elegant and stylish uniform that reflects both our Siena and Dominican history.

All new students in 2013, whether beginning at Year 7 or in other year levels, will be required to purchase the new uniform. A two year changeover period is envisaged, during which current students are required to wear either the new uniform or a current uniform, but not mix and match items. I look forward to seeing all students new to our College in 2013 wearing the new uniform with pride.
