CHRISTIAN COLLEGE STUDENT UNIFORM HANDBOOK

UNIFORM POLICY AND EXPECTATIONS

RATIONALE

Hillcrest Christian College aspires to build a culture which aligns all community members to the vision, mission and values. Our students are seen as ambassadors for the College and the uniform is the most visible symbol to identify students. It is a community expectation that all students take pride in their appearance and ensure their uniform is worn in a respectful manner during the school day to positively reflect our College values.

The Uniform Handbook has been designed to provide all Hillcrest Christian College students and parents / carers with the specific requirements of the College uniform across PreKindy to Year 12. This is to ensure all students understand our uniform expectations and arrive to College each day presented in the correct attire.

It is the responsibility of all staff, students and parents / carers to be aware of the uniform standard and policy at the College and for parents / carers to provide the correct uniform for their child.

The uniform handbook is divided into the following sections for ease of reference:

• General Uniform Expectations

• Early Learning Community – Pre-Kindy and Kindy

• Junior Learning Community – Prep-Year 4

• Middle Learning Community – Years 5-8

• Senior Learning Community – Years 9-12

• Accessories

EXPECTATIONS

The College uniform is to be worn correctly at all times on College grounds and while travelling to and from the College. Students are to be well-presented.
