| Uniform Policy
A uniform dress code reinforces in students a pride in their own appearance, instils recognition of themselves as an integral part of the Kambrya College school community, and assists in developing pride in representing their school. Issues of equality, health and safety, and expense are also factors that contribute to the establishment of the Dress Code.
- To promote equality amongst all students
- To further develop a sense of pride in, and identification with Kambrya College
- To provide durable clothing that is cost effective and practical for the Kambrya College school environment
- To maintain and enhance the positive image of the school in the community
- After consultation with the school community, Kambrya College Council will develop a Dress Code that we believe provides choice for the students, allows for students to safely engage in the many varied school activities, and caters for the financial constraints of families.
- The Dress Code applies during school hours, while travelling to and from school, and when students are on school excursions
- Summer and Winter uniforms, as well as a sports uniform will be prescribed, and are required to be worn
- The only acceptable jewellery is: one stud or sleeper in each ear; plus a watch and one piece of jewellery (either a ring, bracelet, necklace, anklet, sport band or religious symbol) to be worn respectfully and discretely (at the discretion of the principal or his representative). Jewellery may be required to be removed for OHS reasons.
- No spikes are permitted.
- No spacer earrings are permitted
- No facial piercings are permitted.
- Extreme hair colours and/or extreme hairstyles (at the discretion of the Principal or their representative) are not permitted
- Other than clear nail polish, cosmetics may not be worn at school
- Kambrya College encourages all students to wear the College approved head cover
- The student Dress Code, including details of uniform items and places of purchase, will be published in the newsletter at the start of each year
- School Council requires the Principal be responsible for implementation of the Dress Code in a manner consistent with the Student Code of Conduct
- Parents/Guardians seeking exemptions to the Dress Code due to religious beliefs, ethnic or cultural background, student disability, health condition or economic hardship must apply in writing to the Principal
- This policy will be reviewed as part of Kambrya College’s three year review cycle.
