As of 2019, the College uniform will be in a transition phase to a new ‘wardrobe’ of uniform which will be part of our shared identity with St John’s Newtown. Both schools will wear the same uniform.

New families to Geelong Lutheran College Armstrong Creek and St John’s Newtown are to purchase new uniform items. Existing families are encouraged to replace items from the new range.

Transition to the new uniform is expected to be completed by day 1 of Term 1, 2021.

A small discussion group of parents (Armstrong Creek and St John’s) and staff met on Wednesday 19 September to discuss the proposed uniform concepts for 2019.

A small selection of students had the opportunity to view and wear the new concepts, giving their own insights into the new uniforms. The feedback from the group was overwhelmingly positive and we will be very excited to unveil the new wardrobe to our wider community in early Term 4.

Items will go into production immediately and will be available to order in late November, early December. All students new to the College in 2019 will be recommended to purchase from the new uniform range, as the old items will be phased out over two years. Current families will be encouraged to purchase from the new range, rather than second-hand and phased out items.

An invitation to view the new uniform range will be released in the coming weeks! We know that our wider community of parents and students will love the new pieces.

Shoes

Girls : T- bars will be replaced by black leather lace up shoes. The reason for this change is that they are not strong enough as the buckle often breaks leading to students wearing them in manner that could result in injury. Increasingly students are choosing to wear them unbuckled in this dangerous and untidy manner.
