Uniform & Appearance
All Daramalan students are required to wear the approved school uniform. Pupils are encouraged to take pride in their appearance and we ask parents to support us in our aim of upholding the dress code at the College.
We are very conscious of the costs involved to families in outfitting their children, so in an effort to minimise these costs, we have our own shop at the College for the direct sale of uniforms, both new and used, at generously discounted prices compared to retail outlets.
For Physical Education and sporting events, students are expected to provide themselves with appropriate footwear and sportswear including one of the school hats. The official school tracksuit will be required for those on school sporting tours and is encouraged for all students in sporting teams and other activities. PE uniform is only to be worn during PE lessons. The PE uniform should not be worn to school for a Period 1 class but can be worn home after a Period 5 class.
Please ensure that all articles of clothing are clearly named with your child’s full name. The school operates a lost property service and makes every effort to re-unite pupils with the majority of their lost clothing but the School can not accept liability for loss of, or damage to, pupils’ personal property including sports clothing and equipment whilst it is on or left at any of the School’s premises.
Each student is expected to wear the correct uniform for the season, to and from school. If, for a special reason, a student is not able to wear uniform for a day, an explanatory note should be brought from a parent/guardian and given to the student’s Pastoral Care Advisor.
It is hoped that all students will take pride in their appearance.
Female students may wear discreet makeup and jewellery. Students hair should be clean, tidy and of a natural colour. Male students are to be clean shaven.
All students will be allocated a locker where most books and bags should be stored.
Only those books needed for morning lessons, or for the afternoon, or for homework, should be carried around.
A standardised Daramalan school bag is being phased in. All new Year 7 students from 2011 onwards are required to purchase this bag from the Uniform Shop. The cost is $80.
