The dress code of Edenhope College is a detailed written statement of the expectations that the College Council holds with regard to student appearance. It applies during school hours, while travelling to and from school, and when students are engaged in school activities out of school hours. Our code requires students to wear a school uniform, and it defines specifications for garment design and colour.
College Council has considered the values and attitudes of the school community in defining the uniform. It expects that a strong sense of ownership of the uniform will occur, as it does reflect community expectations.
One purpose of the dress code is to create a sense of collective pride in students and their identification with Edenhope College. College Council expects that all students will wear the uniform as outlined in the uniform specifications. These written requirements of the dress code take precedence over any student’s individual preference in matters of dress.
Students may wear any of the uniform listed below or navy track pants and windcheater. They may also wear all black runners in place of school shoes. The wearing of tracksuits, as part of the usual school uniform, applies ONLY for children in year foundation to four.
