UNIFORM UPDATE

 

As you would be aware, the student uniform comprises of a formal uniform and a sports uniform.

 

The changeover period from the BCC uniform expires at the conclusion of this year. Additionally, the College gymnasium and associated change rooms will be available from the commencement of 2022.

 

From the beginning of next year, all students will be required to attend the College in the formal uniform each day. Should they have PE or a PE related elective, they will change into their respective uniform in the new changerooms.

 

The current arrangements with the College uniform will continue until the end of 2021. Students are expected to wear their sports uniform only on the days that they have PE electives, Outdoor Education or Sport and Physical Recreation.

 

The uniform policy includes the following information and students are expected to adhere to this:

  • correct sports uniform EITHER complete Our Lady of Mercy or BCC, including the College socks

  • correct formal uniform EITHER complete Our Lady of Mercy or BCC, including the College socks

 

Thank you for your patience and understanding as we have negotiated a number of conditions that have impacted upon the smooth implementation of the College uniform.

From 2022 we look forward to seeing all our students arrive at the College in our formal uniform.

May we remind families that should their child not have the full formal uniform to please visit the Uniform Shop as soon as possible.
