College Uniform Update

In May this year all families were sent a letter from the principal outlining changes to the sports uniform.

The changes are listed in the table below:

Table of Changes to Sports Uniform

 Current Sports Uniform Item

 

 Change
 Spray Jacket

 

None. The change to the navy blue spray jacket was made in 2014. All old royal blue spray jackets will be phased out by 2017.

 

 Rugby Top

(Optional sports uniform item)

 

None. The change to the navy blue rugby top was made in 2013. Any student opting to wear a rugby top in 2016 must wear the navy blue rugby top.

 

 Polo Shirt

 

None. The change to the navy blue polo shirt was made in 2014. All students are required to wear the navy blue polo shirt by 2017.

 

 Sports Shorts

 

The existing royal blue shorts will be replaced with navy shorts with more suitable fabric and incorporating the updated College crest. These shorts are currently in production and will be in early 2016. All students are required to wear these new shorts by 2017.

 

 Track Pants

 

Currently two styles of track pants are being worn by students:
  • a royal blue fleece track pant
  • a ‘parachute’ fabric track pant

Both these will be replaced with a re-designed cotton and fleece pant. These pants are currently in production and will be available in early 2016. The parachute fabric track pants are no longer available for sale and students will be required to wear the new track pants by 2017.

 

The new navy sports shorts and track pants were due to arrive at Dobson’s this week but unfortunately have been delayed. They will arrive early in 2016 and families will be notified.

House Shirts

With the return to the House system in 2016 House shirts will be compulsory for all students. These shirts are a separate item to the sports polo. House shirts will be required for all House events. The sports polo will continue to be worn for Health and Physical Education classes and some ACC events.

House shirts will be available for purchase in early 2016 – parents will be notified when they become available and all students are expected to have their shirt before the House Athletics Carnival on Friday 4 March.
