    Uniform Policy

    Here at St. Peter’s College uniform is a daily reality for all of our families and students. We are passionate about our uniform, but only because of the immense benefits we know it can deliver to each of our students.

    Why Do We Have a Uniform at St. Peter’s College?

    At St. Peter’s College students are expected to maintain a high standard of dress and grooming which:

    • Promotes school unity and pride;
    • Promotes individual pride and helps prepare students for employment;
    • Takes away the need to keep up with the latest fashion trends;
    • Presents an appropriate image of our College to the broader community.

    We ask that all parents embrace our College uniform and the role it plays in your child’s day to day life at St. Peter’s College. With your support your child will soon become comfortable with the uniform and the regulations concerning their appearance and develop a greater pride in themselves and their appearance within the College community. This is not limited to items of clothing only but encompasses all aspects of appearance and grooming, including but not limited to; hairstyles, make-up, nails, piercings, tattoos, bags, jewellery and chewing gum.

    Zero Tolerance

    A Zero Tolerance Policy applies to breaches of School Uniform Regulations at St. Peter’s College. Under this policy the following will occur:

    • VCE students in breach of the College uniform regulations will be sent home once parents have been contacted with a stamp in their record book indicating that they can’t return to the College until the breach has been rectified.
    • Year 7 to 10 students in breach of the College uniform will be excluded from classes for the day and parents contacted. Students will arrive home at the end of the school day with a stamp in their student record book indicating that they cannot return to the College until the breach has been rectified.

    The only exception to this policy is where, on evident medical grounds, a student cannot wear all or parts of the College uniform.

    Outside of school it is expected that students will behave and dress in a manner which reflects favourably on themselves, on their families and on the College. All students are required to wear the prescribed uniform correctly during school hours and travelling to and from school.

    Students are not permitted to wear visible make-up or jewellery other than one set of plain sleepers or studs for pierced ears; one sleeper or stud in each ear only to be worn.
