The young ladies at Matthew Flinders Girls Secondary College in Geelong fall into two camps – those who want their winter kilts super long and dragging the ground, and those who want them super short and barely hiding their underwear. Teachers want them somewhere in between.
The length of winter kilts should be knee to mid calf.
The length of summer dresses should be knee to mid thigh.
Recently parents /guardians received a text message with regard to the length of school kilts and dresses. The minimum length is to be just above the knee and the maximum length will be mid calf. All students are to ensure that their dresses or kilts adhere to these requirements.
The minimum length of the school dress is just above the knee – Students are also allowed to wear school navy blue shorts. The dress is to be worn with lightweight plain white or navy blue socks
The minimum length of kilts is just above the knee – Students are also allowed to wear school navy blue pants. The tilt is to be worn with plain white or navy blue socks or navy tights.
A Note on the Current Uniform Kilt length: Student leaders have started to and will continue to contact parents about kilts that are too short. The correct length is somewhere between the mid-calf and just above the knee.
The following are not permitted:
- Kilts that are too long will need to be shortened
- Kilts or skirts that are too short will need to be lengthened or an appropriate new garment purchased before a student may return to school
- Wearing of leggings and pants under school dress or skirt/kilt
- Black, ripped or lacey tights
- Socks worn over the top of tights – Students will be asked to remove socks
