CAMPION COLLEGE UNIFORM GUIDELINES
The following guidelines seek to clarify issues relating to uniform and dress standards.
1. Students' appearance at all times should conform to acceptable standards. Wearing of the uniform should reflect positively upon the student and the College community. Clothing is to be kept in a good state of repair.
2. Non-regulation clothing is not to be worn with the College uniform. This includes travelling to and from school (with the exception of wet weather gear).
3. JEWELLERY at the College will not be permitted with the exception of small personal items. The only jewellery allowed is:
· One stud or sleeper per ear.
· One unobtrusive nose stud. No bars or sleepers.
· One ring (unobtrusive).
· One unobtrusive wrist bracelet.
· One unobtrusive necklace with a taonga may be worn.
· One unobtrusive necklace with a cross or crucifix.
· Unobtrusive make up in natural colours may be worn.
· Fancy hair-clips and nail polish (other than colourless or natural) are not permitted.
· Headbands must be black or Campion Green in colour.
· Coloured hair-braiding is not permitted.
4. HAIR must be clean, tidy and clear of the face. Unusual variations of hair styles or colours are not permitted. For clarification, this includes colours which would not be seen in a ‘natural’ state and haircuts such as Mohawks. Males are to be clean shaven. Side burns are not to extend below the ear.
5. TATTOOS that are culturally significant are permitted.
6. SHOES must be black leather shoes. Black leather lace up dress shoes for boys, black leather shoes with one strap across the foot for girls or black leather lace up shoes. Canvas or suede shoes are not permitted. Sports shoes, skate shoes, or sneaker type shoes (except for PE) are not permitted.
7. T-shirts, cycle pants and other garments worn under the uniform must not be visible. This includes thermals.
8. All items of clothing must be clearly marked with the owner's name.
9. Students will be asked to remove non-uniform articles of clothing and jewellery. Non-regulation items of clothing and jewellery will be kept in the office if necessary. Students, who, for genuine reasons, are unable to wear full regulation uniform, are required to obtain permission from Mrs Hyland (SLT). A loan garment will be issued where possible. If this is not possible then a permit will be given to such students as long as they provide an explanatory letter signed by their parent/guardian. The permit should be applied for by going to the student centre during Vertical Form Time on the first day the item of non-regulation clothing is worn. A permit will only allow non-regulation items to be worn for a period of time considered sufficient to overcome the immediate difficulty.
