The CSC uniform is to cater for all gender identities and cultural requirements. We offer a range of uniform options and expect all students to wear one of these options with pride.
- To further develop a sense of pride in, and identification with CSC.
- To promote equality amongst all students.
- To provide durable clothing that is cost effective and practical for the CSC environment.
- To maintain and enhance the positive image of CSC in the community.
- After consultation with the college community and the Student Representative Council, School Council has developed a Policy that we believe provides choice for the students, allows for students to safely engage in the many varied activities, and caters for the financial constraints of families.
- The Uniform Policy applies during CSC hours, while travelling to and from CSC, and when students are on CSC excursions. All students are expected to be in the correct uniform daily.
- Students who attend CSC out of uniform are expected to bring a note from their parent or guardian.
- Students who are consistently out of uniform will be informed of relevant consequences.
- Students not wearing expected footwear will be excluded from technology and science practical classes until appropriate footwear is provided. Alternative work will be provided by the classroom teacher.
- School Council requires the Principal be responsible for implementation of the Uniform Policy in a manner consistent with the Student Engagement Policy.
- Arrangements can be made to supply uniforms via State Schools Relief for families experiencing economic hardship.
Cases of non-compliance due to financial hardship will be considered on a case by case basis.
- Parents seeking exemptions to the Uniform Policy due to religious beliefs, ethnic or cultural background, student disability, health condition or economic hardship must apply in writing to the School Council for consideration.
- Stud earrings and sleepers worn in the ears, plus minimal arm jewellery including a watch are acceptable. Large and dangling earrings which pose an OH&S risk are not to be worn.
- Facial piercing is tolerated by the College community and under the DET dress code represents an individual’s right to express themselves without discrimination against appearance. Exceptions to this include technology classes where facial piercing is deemed an OH&S risk and is aligned to industry work safe requirements due to machinery being used or where food handling is required. Where the piercing is deemed too large such as protruding rings, bars or stretchers and through its size presents an OH&S risk, the teacher will negotiate with the student and parent so a more appropriately sized piercing is worn during the day.
- Minimal cosmetics are to be worn at CSC.
- A CSC hat is encouraged to be worn outside in the warmer months. Hats are to be taken off inside. Please refer to the Sunsmart Policy.
- All students are expected to wear hard black leather shoes, with no visible logos, which cover the entire foot either lace up, pull on style boot or with velcro fasteners to all classes. In accordance with OH&S guidelines students undertaking science and technology subjects such as welding, wood work, automotive, engineering, metal work, home economics and textiles including the CFA program are expected to wear hard black leather shoes or hard black leather boots. Navy or white socks, or navy tights are to be worn with black leather, fully enclosed shoes.
- Summer Uniform: dress, shorts, white collared shirt (short sleeves), or polo shirt (short sleeves).
- Winter Uniform: long slacks, white collared shirt (long sleeves), polo jumper, v-necked jumper, jacket.
- Sports Uniform: shorts, PE shirt.
- This policy will be reviewed every three years as part of the School Council Policy update schedule.
