DRESS STANDARDS & COMPLIANCE

Students at Brisbane Adventist College wear smart, practical uniforms they can be proud of. They are expected to maintain a high standard of dress, wearing the College uniform in a neat and tidy manner at all times.

Students are to wear the correct uniform to school each day and ensure it is maintained and in good condition. This includes travelling to and from College and when participating in College excursions (unless stated otherwise), and travelling to and from sporting events, including training.

Staff members will regularly check to ensure students are wearing the correct uniform in a neat and tidy manner. If students are unable to wear the correct uniform, or any part of it, parents are to provide a note of explanation. Students and parents are expected to prioritise having the correct uniform every day.

Secondary students who do not have complete and correct uniform are to collect a uniform pass from their form teacher at their form class in the morning.

Non-compliance with these uniform requirements may result in:

  • a student not being able to attend class
  • a request for a parent to bring the correct uniform item to the College
  • the student being sent home
  • the student being asked to stay at home until a suitable hair style/cut is established
