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.

http://www.newcombsc.vic.edu.au/parents/uniform

With the introduction of the new College uniform in 2013 there was a two year period of grace, during which time students could wear new, old or combination of uniform items. We are now approaching the end of that two year transition period and it is timely to remind all families that students are expected to be wearing the new College uniform for the beginning of the 2015 school year.

Girls uniform

  • Summer dress is a green, blue and white check
  • Tailored navy blue pants or dress shorts
  • New winter skirt will be wash and wear with three box pleats front and back. The colour will be bottle green and navy tartan
  • White collared, button up, straight edge school shirts to be worn with shorts, pants and the winter skirt.
  • Navy Blue Wool blend jumper with College Logo, and bottle green and white stripes on the neck band.
  • Optional Navy Blue Blazer with College Logo and tie (bottle green, navy and white)
  • Black polishable leather or leather look shoes- with laces or buckle. Black skate style shoes may be worn if they are all black, including the laces, with no coloured markings. Slip-on, canvas or ballet style shoes will not be accepted.
  • White knee length or crew socks with summer dress, shorts or skirt
  • Navy blue stockings or tights can be worn with the winter skirt

Short skirts at St Columba’s College

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.

http://www.columba.vic.edu.au/news/September-01-2017-Uniform-PIN

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.

New uniform at King David School

King David School introduced their current school uniform in mid 2012. An 18 month transition period followed, finishing at the end of the 2013 school year. The old style uniforms were collected and donated to a school in Africa.

December 2012

The second half of 2012 has seen the fruition of over 2 years of work by the members of the uniform committee with the introduction of the new uniform. The new uniform is consistent with the values of the School. It is modern, comfortable and emphasises gender equity.

A planning committee was set up, comprising parents, teaching staff, senior management and a consultant. Feedback about uniform preferences were canvassed from parents and students and taken into account in the design of the new uniforms.

The new uniform is smart and fits the profile of the direction in which The King David School is heading through this next chapter. Modern and with clean lines, the new uniform hopes to reflect a sense of pride about being a King David student.

This has been a big undertaking and the process has been supported by the uniform shop manager. A big thank-you to the uniform committee and for hours and hours of ongoing work.

Students have until the end of 2013 to transition out of the old uniform, after which all students will be required to wear only the new uniform. We know our students will wear the new uniform with pride.

July 2012

The Ducere Foundation together with King David are helping the plight of some of the poorest children. Old school uniforms will be donated to a primary school in Zambia. Zambia is one of the poorest countries in the world and has the highest concentration of orphans in the world. The majority of the population live on less than $2 a day.

Posters have been put up on all campuses as well as collection bins to facilitate collection of the old uniforms. The King David Parents’ Association who run the Uniform Shop will also donate the brand new, unsold uniforms that are no longer needed as we transition into our new uniform.

King David School

Girls at King David School Armadale are permitted to wear t-bar shoes with their school uniform but must keep them buckled up. They wear white socks with their summer dress, and navy blue socks or tights with their winter skirt.

Q: Uniform is comfortable for me but from your experiences is there anything generally that you have learnt about uniform over the years that you could pass down. Thanks so much :):) xx love your work fam

A:

Hey anon,

Hmmm, things about uniform I’ve learnt over the years … winter takes a bit longer to put on, so give it time. In the middle of winter when it’s really cold and you’re not going to take your jumper off all day, you can wear your pj top under your shirt- you’ll be extra warm and you can’t see it with the jumper on. Don’t undo your tie every night and do it again the morning, just loosen it. Check your uniform after not wearing it for half a year because you might have grown (and try not to do it the night before you have to wear it!). The last one is a bit weird, but I wear boy shorts on top of my tights in winter and this has been brilliant because then my tights don’t fall down!

That’s probably it, you’ll find you get used to wearing the uniform soon enough.

Love FAM

Q: This might seem like a stupid q but with winter uniform coming up just wanted to be prepared as it will be my first time! How do we wear our tights with the winter skirt? Are they worn up to the waist or? Never worn them before haha. Also I know in summer we have shorts underneath the dress so do we still need to wear them with the tights or are they unnecessary? Also
Hey there ☺

A: Don’t worry, it’s not a stupid question at all and I’m sure other year 9’s have been wondering the same thing. To answer your question, tights are worn with the waistband at the waist. Most Macrobbians tuck their shirts into their tights and then put their skirts on top. It’s up to you whether or not you wear shorts on top of your tights, but most girls do, especially if their tights are a little sheer.

Hope this was helpful,

5 April 2017

Q: Step by step guide on wearing the winter uniform please ❤

A: Hey there 🙂

This is how I put on my winter uniform:

First I put on my white, stiff-collared shirt and button it up all the way to the top (because some teachers may tell you off otherwise).

Next I’ll pull on my tie and fold my collar over the top. I usually get my mum to tie it at the beginning of the week and just loosen it when taking it off so I don’t need someone to re-tie it for me every single day.

Then I’ll put on a pair of black ankle socks (just personal preference) and then my tights on top of that. If my tights are a little sheer I like to wear a pair of shorts over the top of them (but again, this is my personal preference).

Lastly I will put my skirt over the top and tuck my shirt into it before putting on my blazer and shoes. The jumper, beret and scarf are optional but are nice when you want an extra layer of warmth, especially while travelling to and from school.

If you are going to wear the pants, it’s pretty much the same steps except you would have to wear white socks instead of tights.

Don’t worry too much because the first two weeks of term will be a transition period where you can wear either your summer or winter uniform, so you have some time to get the hang of it. You’ll pick it up after a while just by looking at how the other students wear their uniform too. You can also find the uniform policy in the school planner.
