New uniform at Geelong Lutheran College

In 2019 a new uniform was introduced at Geelong Lutheran College. A new navy jumper and striped shirt was introduced, and the option of pants for girls in winter and shorts in summer. Transition to the new uniform is expected to be completed by day 1 of Term 1, 2021.


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.

Sep 20, 2018

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.

Things You’ll Only Get If You Grew Up In Geelong

23 Things You’ll Only Get If You Grew Up In Geelong – I bet you never won a game against South Barwon either. By Courtney Gould from Buzzfeed Australia.

You were always confused as to why the schools in Geelong had long-ass kilts.

When all Melbourne girls had short skirts.

Winter kilts at Matthew Flinders Girls Secondary College

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.

August 2006

The length of winter kilts should be knee to mid calf.

The length of summer dresses should be knee to mid thigh.

May 2011

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.

May 2014

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.

June 2014

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.

December 2015

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

Is North Geelong Secondary College stealing their new uniform?

In 2010 North Geelong Secondary College revealed plans for a new school uniform. Students got wind of the plan and accused the school of stealing the uniform design used by another school.

August 2010

is North Geelong stealing?

well, we all know the rumor that North Geelong is changing their uniform from bland of green,white and brown to something a little spicier, using the color’s red, black and white.
But, is North Geelong, the school of many talents stealing?
The picture above indicates that the uniform that was chosen specifically for ‘NGSC’ is acually, the uniform of another school!!

The students got things half right. The uniform wasn’t stolen from Williamstown High School. But the winter skirt design is the same as Mt Alexander College.

And well as Monterey Secondary College.

New uniform at Newcomb Secondary College

In 2013 Newcomb Secondary College in Geelong introduced a new school uniform. Green is now the predominant colour. This replaced the brown that once featured alongside.
