  • Dress code

As the weather gets warmer and we start switching to our summer clothes, this is a reminder about the dress code. Everyone is expected to be modestly dressed in a manner which is appropriate for a school environment. This may be different to what you wear outside of school or at the weekends. Specifically, please be reminded that midriffs need to be covered, footwear sensible and safe in case of an evacuation, and shoulders must be covered (no singlets, spaghetti straps, strapless tops). (Ms Vitty)
