Uniform requirements for TAS classes

Parents and students need to be aware that it is a Dept. of Education & Workcover directive that NO student may enter a Technology classroom unless they are wearing the correct protective footwear.

This means that at St John’s College, students are required to wear their normal black leather, lace up shoes for all Technology classes including sports days. It is also a requirement in all TAS classes that hair that is shoulder length or longer be tied back in accordance with teachers’ instructions and safety guidelines. Additionally, all students in Food Technology classes are required to wear a protective apron.

Hair

Students are expected to be neat, tidy and well groomed at all times.  Extraordinary hairstyles are not permitted.  Bright, lurid rinses and bleaches are not permitted.  Undercut haircuts are not permissible. A number ‘4’ comb is the closest cut permitted for short hair.

Girls with shoulder-length or longer hair must have it tied back, or up, at all times, using the appropriate ribbons.

Girls are permitted to wear dark green, red, gold or white ribbons in their hair.  Scarves, lace ribbons, and other coloured ribbons are not permitted.

Boys’ hair should not touch the collar and fringes should be above the eyebrow level.

Boys must be clean-shaven when they come to school each day and when representing the College.  Beards, moustaches and sideburns are not permitted.

The College will determine the appropriate standards.  If a student (or parent) is unsure about a proposed haircut or style please contact the relevant Welfare Coordinator or the Assistant Principal before proceeding with that style of cut.

One is a dark green nylon back-pack (two sizes available) and the second is a dark green nylon carry bag (suitable for use as a sports bag and practical TAS subjects). The back-pack is the best available design for protection of backs, shoulders etc.  Students must use one of these types of bags and keep them in good order.  The school bags are to remain free of graffiti and markings other than a student’s name which should be clearly written on the label provided.  These bags are available at the College Uniform Shop. The contents of the school bag should not exceed 10% of the student’s body weight.
