School Dress Code
The school has a Dress Code Policy which has the approval of the School Board and the P&C Association. In line with Department of Education policy the dress code was developed after input from parents/carers, students and staff.
We would like students to be proud of their school and to identify with it, by wearing the school uniform. Parents/carers are requested to send their child/children to school in the approved school clothing. The school appreciates parental/carer support and encouragement of our dress code and asks that parents/carers closely supervise their child/children’s standard of appearance.
Lower School students wear navy shirts and Senior School students wear red shirts in order to distinguish between them.
Dress code clothing items are as follows:
Lower School students – KSHS navy polo shirt, with collar and sleeves
Senior School students – KSHS red polo shirt, with collar and sleeves
Navy trousers, navy track pants, navy shorts or navy skirt.
KSHS Jacket – microfiber outer/cotton lined and embossed with school logo.
KSHS Jacket – navy polar fleece embossed with school logo.
White, navy and red undershirt is permitted to be worn ‘under’ school polo shirts.
Follow the Dream shirts are acceptable dress code for Follow the Dream students.
Clontarf Academy uniform is acceptable dress code for Clontarf students who are participating in the Clontarf program.
PLEASE NOTE – NOT PERMITTED:
- Any logo, slogan or advertising is not acceptable as part of the Dress Code. This includes all items of clothing (eg; pants, sweaters, hats, bags, etc) with brand names and/or brand signature stripes.

Hoodies (Tops with hoods) – Hoodies are not allowed to be worn at school. Students who wear one must hand it in at the Front Office and may choose to borrow a school jumper, if one is available. After school they can pick up their hoodie as they leave. There are no consequences for students who remove their hoodie as required. Unlike some other items of non-dress code attire, a note from a parent/guardian will not allow a student to wear a hoodie at school.
Piercings – Occupational Safety and Health concerns prohibit the wearing of certain piercings by students at school. Students are limited to wearing earrings such as sleepers or studs that are not sharp or large enough to get caught on clothing, other items or other students. Facial piercings are not allowed, such as eyebrow or lip piercings, and teachers will request they are removed if seen. There are no consequences if students follow directions to remove piercings when requested. Some school activities may require that all piercings are removed for the duration of the lesson.
Certain items of inappropriate clothing may be required to be changed before a student can attend classes, at the school’s discretion.
Physical Education – For hygiene reasons all students will be required to change prior to and after physical education periods.
