Girls at St Columba’s College, Essendon have been warned that short skirts are not acceptable.
The College has noticed an increase in the number of students not wearing their uniform properly. We have also noticed that winter skirt lengths have shortened as the term has progressed and students have grown.
Can I ask that parents have a conversation with their daughter regarding uniform regulations and College expectations outlined on page 11 of the College Planner. We ask for your support and assistance in rectifying uniform issues.
Our aim as a College is that all students arrive in the morning in correct uniform, unfortunately, this is not always the case.
This year we have seen a marked improvement in students wearing their blazer to and from school. However, the winter skirt length is still an issue as students are rolling up their skirt to make it shorter. The winter skirt must be worn knee length. The definition of knee length is the bottom of the winter skirt reaches the knee cap when a student is standing. If your daughter’s hem has been cut previously and no longer has a hem available to lower please organise a replacement.
We ask you, as parents, to support the College in this issue. Parents are asked to contact their daughter’s House Leader if they have any concerns.
