School uniform and appearance

Uniform: All learners must wear the prescribed uniform at all times. This applies not only to uniforms worn from day to day, but also to uniforms worn during extramural activities. Learners found wearing partial or incorrect uniforms, whether at school or not, will be subject to disciplinary action. Failure to adhere to the school’s dress code will result in the item of clothing, footwear or jewellery being confiscated and only handed back at the end  of that term.
