In 2019 a new trans-seasonal uniform was introduced at Mount St. Joseph Girls’ College. A new blue pinstripe pattern was introduced on the summer dress and winter skirt, along with the option of pants or shorts, and a new sky blue jumper.
All students can elect to wear the new uniform from 2019, and all Year 7 2019 students are required to wear the new uniform only. Combinations of the new and old uniform are not allowed, and the old uniform may not be worn after December 2021.
For the past two years the College has worked with a steering committee to design a new student uniform. The committee comprised of parents, students and staff. We are excited to launch our new uniform with our new Year 7 students in 2019.
It was crucial that the new uniform would be comfortable to wear and would address some of the concerns that students have with the current uniform and the possibility of students having more flexibility and choice to cater for different body shapes, body temperatures and different activities was another strong consideration. Additionally, we wanted a uniform that gave students real choice. Our uniform is comfortable and allows movement and more opportunity to be active at recess and lunchtime with the inclusion of shorts or trousers.
The uniform has been designed to be trans-seasonal, that is, we will no longer have a set winter or summer uniform. Rather, we have provided students a choice of either wearing trousers, shorts, dress, shirt or skirt. All students wearing the new uniform are expected to wear black leather lace-up shoes. No skate style shoes or black runners are permitted. Students enrolling in the College at any year level in 2019 are not permitted to wear any items from the previous academic uniform.
Students wearing the academic shorts, dress or skirt must wear the College white socks with the blue band that can be purchased from the Uniform Shop. Students can either wear a long or short sleeve school shirt.
Students who would like to wear the College dress or skirt can either wear the College white socks with the blue bland or navy tights. The skirt or dress must be hemmed to the knee.
