It is an expectation that all students wear correct uniform. Students will receive warning letters if they are not in the correct uniform; they may also be sent home if this continues. School sandals should have a back strap and provide support over the top of the foot. Black shoes and white socks may also be worn but sandals must be worn with sulus. Shorts may be worn as an alternative to the sulu and skirt except for formal school functions such as Secondary Presentation Evening.
