Uniform Changes From 2017

A number of changes have been made to improve the look, design and functionality of the college uniform. These changes will be implemented from the beginning of 2017. There will be a 12 month transition period during which time students will be able to wear the new uniform or the old uniform. The exception to this is that leather style school shoes must be worn from the start of the 2017 school year. Samples of the new uniform items are currently available to try on at Noone Imagewear, however, no stock will be available for pick up until the middle of January.

Notification of Extended Absence from School

You must notify the school if your child will be absent for an extended period of time (5 or more school days). Please complete the following form and submit to the College Office at least 3 weeks in advance of the scheduled leave date.
