Student Uniform Guidelines

At All Saints Catholic Senior College our image in the community is very important to us. Our image has implications for our young people when they seek employment. This, combined with the pride we take in our College, is why we are very particular about the way our students wear their uniform, and the way they present themselves.

All students are reminded that uniform should be of a standard that does not invite comment.
