COLLEGE UNIFORM

Since the announcement that Mount Ridley College was being planned for commencement in 2009, community input has indicated the desire to have a school uniform for students.  Indeed, the views expressed in the community brief were identified as:
 

  • Having a reliable and easily accessible uniform supplier
  • Promoting equality amongst all students
  • Developing a unique, distinctive and personalised school identity
  • Establishing a sense of pride in and identification with our College
  • Providing durable clothing that is cost effective and practical for our College environment
  • Setting, maintaining and enhancing the positive image of the College in the community.

 

Consultation through the use of a number of parent focus groups has resulted in the development of a practical and distinctive College uniform.  The colours chosen for the College are Sky Blue, Gold, Natural and Black.  Inspiration has come from the iconic landmark of Mount Ridley and the volcanic rock which now lies dormant beneath it, represented by Black in the colour palette.  The Gold and Sky Blue represent the sun and sky - a new dawn symbolizing the birth of a new school community.  The natural represents the earth and the land on which the College is built.

Mount Ridley College has a uniform dress code for all students which consists of a standardised range of clothing, including footwear and headwear.  It is in place to clearly identify students of the College.  Students are required to wear the uniform during school hours, while travelling to and from school and when engaged in school activities out of school hours.  Sanctions are implemented when a student attends school out of uniform without a valid reason.  The College does accommodate the differing religious beliefs of our students in relation to clothing.  Written application must be made to the Principal in these instances.
