New uniform at Kilbreda College

In 2014 Kilbreda College unveiled an updated school uniform featuring the new colours of charcoal grey and deep maroon. Girls changed to the new uniform during a two year transition period. As part of this change, the school also switched from brown school shoes to black.

The winter uniform features a charcoal grey blazer and jumper with maroon trim, matched with a grey and maroon pinstripe skirt, candy striped shirt, and a crossover tie. The new summer dress has white, grey and maroon stripes.

During the transition phase to the new uniform, students are to wear either a complete set of old or new uniform. There is to be no mixing and matching.

There is one exception with respect to footwear. New socks (white) and new shoes (black leather lace up) may be worn with either the old or new summer uniform. New socks (black) or new tights (black) and new shoes (black leather lace ups) may be worn with either the old or new winter uniform.

Thank-you to all families and students who consistently meet the College’s expectations with respect to the correct wearing of the summer and winter uniforms. The transition period between old and new uniform has presented its challenges and as always we are grateful for the support that we receive from our families.

School holidays provide time to take stock and tend to the tasks that busy terms sideline. Therefore we encourage all students to review their winter and summer uniforms, ensuring that skirt and dress lengths are no shorter than above the knee, blazers are clean and pressed and shoes polished.

A reminder that all students in Years 7 to 10 are required to wear the new uniform from the beginning of 2017.

Brown shoes at Walford School for Girls

Until 2012 girls at Walford Anglican School for Girls in Adelaide wore brown lace-up school shoes, paired with camel coloured knee socks in summer, and grey knee socks or tights in winter. They now wear black shoes instead.

The girls donated their now unneeded brown school shoes to students in Africa.

Walford School sends dozens of old brown school shoes to Africa through The Butterfly Movement charity


Black is the new black at Walford School.

The Hyde Park college last year broke with 120 years of tradition to change its school uniform shoe colour from brown to black.

Students donated about 300 pairs of brown shoes to The Butterfly Movement charity last month.

Year 9 student Kate, 14, of Millswood, was pleased to hand over her old footwear to be sent to disadvantaged African families.

“It’s a good feeling because you’re giving people in Africa an opportunity to wear shoes that they wouldn’t have had before,” Kate said.

“I couldn’t imagine not having any shoes to wear.

“I hope they are happy and they’re useful for them.”

Year 9 student Alexia said it was important for the school to get behind the cause.

“Some of those people have never even worn shoes before,” the Unley resident said.

“The shoes wouldn’t have come to much use otherwise.”

The Butterfly Movement was founded in 2011 by Dalice Kennedy.

It has since donated about 70,000 pairs of shoes to people in need.

The Walford uniform shop advertised their surplus stock to the girls of nearby Kildare College Holden Hill, who were still required to wear brown lace up school shoes.
