The September holidays are often a time for families to take a break, visit relatives and friends, attend sporting finals, or simply to enjoy the sunny weather and the longer daylight hours.

No matter how you choose to spend these two weeks, I hope that they provide the opportunity to relax and unwind, so that we return to Term 4 refreshed and reinvigorated.

Our VCE students are less likely to take a break over the holidays as the final exams are fast approaching. Unit 4 mock exams begin this Friday, followed by revision lectures at school once Term 4 resumes.

Families are reminded to RSVP to the Valedictory Assembly and Dinner by 28 September.


The start of Term 4 marks the changeover to summer uniform. Please note the following:

  • navy shorts or navy pants worn with navy socks with red and white stripe
  • navy/maroon/white check summer dress worn with short white socks
    dresses, skirts and shorts are to be on the knee
  • students may continue to wear winter uniform, but there should be no mixing of summer/winter/sport uniform
  • hats are to be worn at recess and lunchtime and at all outdoor sporting activities
  • hair is to be tied back if it touches the shoulder
  • no make-up is permitted, including lip gloss and false eyelashes
  • no nail polish or artificial nails.

No jewellery except the following:

  • watch
  • one set of earrings (sleepers or plain studs) in the lower earlobe, additional piercings must have clear blanks
  • no rings, bracelets, necklaces

Please refer to the School Uniform Policy for more details.
