The school places great importance on uniform. It emphasises our belief in the identity of the school as well as underlining the importance of being neat and tidy in all aspects of school life and indeed life after school. It simplifies the lives of the students during the critical second level years and undoubtedly saves parents large sums of money.
Ultimately, we rely on the cooperation of parents in implementing the school uniform policy. We do not want to be confrontational or to engage in conflict with students and believe that it is in the best interests of all, when the policy is upheld from the outset and we thank you for your continued support.
The school uniform consists of:
- Crested white polo shirt and a crested navy jumper
- Proper school-uniform trousers: dark grey, loose fit with straight leg– jeans, canvas etc. are not acceptable. They may be purchased in Dunne’s, M & S, Debenhams, Lyne’s of Killarney etc.
- Black leather shoes – no canvas or runners or runner type shoes, even if they are black.
- Flat black or navy ‘boat style’ shoes are also acceptable. A good pair of leather shoes should last the whole year and keep your child dry and comfortable each day.
- Students attending matches should come to school in full uniform and change before leaving.
Wearing of the school uniform
The school uniform is compulsory on each school day and on all school outings and must be worn when travelling between home and school.
Students must wear full uniform for Assembly each morning. A student not wearing full uniform must present a note from home to the Year Head. This will be accepted for one day only after which a sanction will apply.
In order to maintain a good standard of uniform, throughout the school year, parents/students are asked to purchase a jumper and at least two shirts and two trousers each year and maintain these in a presentable condition: it is not realistic to expect that one trousers will last a teenager for a whole school year and maintaining an acceptable standard of hygiene will normally require a change of shirt, mid-week.
Students are not permitted to wear hoodies or tops in school at any time. These will be confiscated and returned only to parents.
