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.

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.

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.

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.

New uniform at MFGSC

In 2015 Matthew Flinders Girls Secondary College in Geelong introduced a new school uniform. The existing blue, red and white colours were retained, as was the tartan pattern used on the winter skirt. However the school logo on the blazer and jumper was simplified, a white blouse replaced the previous blue, and a new summer dress design introduced, reusing the tartan pattern seen on the winter skirt.

The school uniform – both the quality of it and the wearing of it – has been an issue raised by students, teachers and parents as something for us to focus on in the immediate future. The way the uniform is worn, rightly or wrongly, is how many in our local community judge our school. When the uniform is worn well, people consider the discipline and learning in a school to be of high quality. We also want our girls to take pride in their school and to learn that observing the professional expectations of organisational life is an important part of building community as well as excellent preparation for future employment.

Given these perceptions and understandings, we plan to review the existing uniform and uniform policy in 2014. Students, parents and teachers will be invited to contribute to this thinking. This will be done in the first half of the year so that changes can be made for the following year. Any changes will be phased in over time so that costs are reduced for parents.

Dear Parents

As you will be aware, we are currently reviewing the College uniform and uniform policy. Our Assistant Principal, Ms Fiona Taylor, is leading this process and we thank those of you who have provided us with very helpful and constructive feedback throughout the consultation process.

Year 7 Uniform (2015 onwards)

Year 8 -12 Uniform (2015 -2018) Students may wear the uniform outlined below or choose to wear the new school uniform which will be phased into the school over the next 3 years. Combinations of the new and old uniform are not preferred but will be permitted during the transition period

January 2015

The incoming Year 7 students have the new school uniform and it looks very smart. The remainder of the school has three years to transition to the new uniform. In the meantime, there will be a hybrid of the old and the new for these students.

April 2015

All students in the new uniform are now required to have their blazers.

New uniform at King David School

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.

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.

New uniform at Siena College

Siena College launched their current brown, black and white uniform in 2012. This uniform features black lace up school shoes with white knee socks in summer, and black tights in winter.

Commencing in 2013, all students new to the College will be required to wear the new uniform. The next two years until the start of 2015 provided a transition period for current students to change to the new uniform.

The old uniform featured brown lace up school shoes, a pink dress and fawn knee socks in summer, and a brown skirt with brown tights in winter.

It is with much pleasure that I introduce the new Siena College uniform. It is the result of eighteen months of planning and consultation and was designed to reflect the history and Dominican tradition of Siena College and to serve the College well into the future.

The distinctive, rust blazer has been retained as the one constant feature of all the uniform changes across the seventy-two year history of Siena College. It reflects the rich, rust coloured soils of Siena in Italy, the birthplace of our patron, St Catherine of Siena. The rust colour is also a symbolic link between Siena and the red soil at the centre of Australia. The new colours of black and white connect our community to Dominicans around the world.

In developing the new uniform, we have been guided by Francis Stewart from our uniform supplier, Bob Stewart. Francis’ expertise and advice based on many years of experience has been invaluable. I thank the members of the Uniform Committee and all who offered advice and suggestions. Thanks to this dedicated team and the contribution of current and past students, staff, parents and Dominican Sisters, we now have a modern, elegant and stylish uniform that reflects both our Siena and Dominican history.

All new students in 2013, whether beginning at Year 7 or in other year levels, will be required to purchase the new uniform. A two year changeover period is envisaged, during which current students are required to wear either the new uniform or a current uniform, but not mix and match items. I look forward to seeing all students new to our College in 2013 wearing the new uniform with pride.

Classic uniforms at Academy of Mary Immaculate

Academy of Mary Immaculate introduced their current school uniform in 2011. The previous uniform looked much the same but plainer: both the winter skirt and blazer were unadorned navy blue.

2010

This year, however, a comprehensive review of the AMI uniform identified the need to adopt a more contemporary uniform design, while respecting the Academy’s rich history and unique identity.

In consultation with the College community and being mindful of factors such as fit, comfort, durability, cost, fabric and design, a new uniform has been unveiled. It will have a modern design, while retaining the College colours of light and navy blue, yellow and white.

So 2010 marks the end of the ‘pinny’ era, as the College’s new arrivals in 2011 embrace change.

2010

Following consultation with all members of the Academy community, modification was made to the College uniform to ensure a more contemporary style. Year 7 2011 are the first group to wear the new uniform which will phased in over the next two years.

2011

The College has introduced a new school uniform for 2011. This uniform will be phased in over a couple of years. In 2011 it will only be available for Year 7 students and students new to the College. All other students will continue to wear the old uniform.

I would like to congratulate the majority of our students who wear the Uniform well. There have been a number of questions regarding some aspects of the Uniform so I have included the College Policy on these items for your information.

Socks – There appears to be some confusion regarding the correct socks to be worn with the “new” Winter Uniform. All students wearing the New College Winter Uniform are to wear Navy College Socks or navy Tights. White socks continue to be worn by students in Years 10, 11 & 12 who have the Uniform that is being phased out.
