PE and Sports Uniform

We are excited to showcase our new PE and Sports uniform. Our aim was to create a uniform of increased quality, comfort and flexibility, while maintaining affordability. The refreshed design strengthens College identity and visibility on and off the sporting field. It also aligns the PE uniform with BAC Sports team wear, as they now share a common look and feel. College stakeholders, including students, parents and staff, alumni and the College Advisory Council, were involved in the design process.

We are pleased to begin the implementation phase of our new PE uniform. It is our belief that the new PE uniform range will be more serviceable for our families while modernising and bringing consistency to our updated visual identity across the College.

The New PE Uniform Range

The new design minimises the use of white, with ink/navy blue the predominant colour. Elements of sky blue, white and gold lift the overall look. The College crest features on all upper garments, while the ‘BAC’ icon features on all lower garments. 

Selected fabric is performance appropriate, minimising wear and increasing comfort. New items have been added to the range in an effort to provide students with affordable alternatives and improved fit options.

The New BAC Sports Uniform Range

The design of the new BAC Sports range is now consistent across all sports and aligns with the new PE uniform. A new range of training garments is currently under development and will be released in the coming months. 

The ‘BAC’ icon features prominently on all BAC Sports uniforms, while the College crest is only featured on the on-field uniforms. The Adventist symbol is featured as a locker tag on the upper garment of each on-field uniform. 

Sublimated garments are lightweight yet durable, and every effort was made to ensure specialty uniform requirements were met. 

Frequently Asked Questions

Why introduce a new PE and BAC Sports range? The decision was made to introduce a new PE and BAC Sports uniform after feedback from College stakeholders regarding the design and quality of the current uniform. 

What is the difference between the PE and BAC Sports range? The new PE uniform will replace the College-wide sports uniform. All students from Prep to Year 12 are required to wear this uniform for curricular activities.

How will the new uniform be phased in? The new uniform will be available for purchase from 2023, at which time a two-year transition period will begin.

Has the College considered the cost impact on families? Yes, the cost impact on families has been at the forefront of all decision-making during this process.
