Uniform Regulations

The parents through the school Governing Body determine the uniform policy of the school.

The Uniform

The school blazer is a mandatory part of the uniform for all learners.

For Boys: Grey trousers (either long or short), grey socks, polished black lace-up school shoes (without buckles, suede, or sneakers), and a white school shirt (available in long or short sleeves). The shirt should be hip-length with slits. A black school jersey is optional, and a black belt with a neutral buckle is required.

For Girls: A tartan skirt paired with the prescribed long- or short-sleeve white shirt. White ankle socks or 70 denier black stockings, and black lace-up school shoes or closed ‘baby doll’ shoes (not suede or sneakers) are required. Similar to boys, girls have the option of wearing a black school jersey. Additionally, prescribed girls’ tailored charcoal trousers may be worn with black socks instead of the tartan skirt. The charcoal trousers will be gradually phased out, and girls are now permitted to wear grey trousers.

For both Boys and Girls:

Winter attire includes the school scarf, black gloves, and an official black beanie with the school badge embroidered on it. 

During Physical Education classes, learners should wear school sports clothing or any T-shirt (preferably the House T-shirt) with shorts or tracksuit pants in school colours. Girls are not permitted to wear tank tops, denim shorts, or transparent leggings. Footwear is not compulsory.

For swimming during Physical Education:

Girls may wear any dark-coloured full-body swimsuit.

Boys may wear dark-coloured speedos, “jammers,” full drawstring board shorts, or rugby shorts.

The sports uniform consists of the official white golf shirt, the official black and red vest, and black shorts (or skorts for girls), each adorned with school badges. Some teams may have specific uniform requirements. Learners are allowed to wear the official school track suit or fleece top over sports attire.

Matric learners may wear their official matric tie (paired with a plain white buttoned-up shirt) and/or jersey, available in sleeveless, long-sleeved, or button-up cardigan styles.

During Ramadan:

Girls may wear a white or black scarf at all times.

Boys may wear a white or black kofia.

Learners observing Lakshmi Poojaa may wear the required red string upon receipt of a note from their parents.

Any learner who feels that the Code of Conduct does not accommodate the requirements of their faith or culture is encouraged to approach the Principal for further assistance.

If a learner is found wearing incorrect clothing or jewellery and is unable to provide a “Uniform Defaulter” slip signed by senior staff indicating a valid reason for the deviation from regulations,

(a) the jewellery or clothing will be confiscated for a week,

(b) the learner may be asked to write out the dress regulations, and

(c) additional consequences such as detention may be enforced.

Learners experiencing uniform issues must consult with senior staff at the start of the day, accompanied by a letter from their parents. This letter should specify the date by which the uniform irregularity will be addressed.

Wearing Colours

Only name badges and school-issued badges are permitted. Any other insignia requires specific permission.

On the blazer, only the scroll of the highest award achieved in a discipline or code is worn. For example, the lesser award is removed upon receiving a higher award.

On an Honours blazer, only a name badge and Counsellor badge (for members of the SRC) are allowed.

Civvies Days

On certain occasions throughout the year, such as Valentine’s Day, learners have the option (upon payment of a nominal fee allocated to charity) to attend school without their uniform.

Civvies attire replaces the standard school uniform for the day. However, this does not imply a relaxation in the dress code standards. Any learner found inappropriately dressed will be requested to return home and change into their school uniform.

Attire should be tidy, clean, and modest, with shoes being mandatory. Headgear and sunglasses are not permitted when learners are addressed by teachers.
