School Uniform

School Dress Code – Years 7-11

The school believes that a dress code for the students in Years 7 to 11 is appropriate and will help promote a productive working environment. The dress code at St Benedict’s is something that we take pride in.  With high expectations for student uniform we hope to:

  • encourage pride in the school.
  • create a sense of belonging and community.
  • enable students to feel safe and secure.
  • promote equity and reduce bullying through peer pressure to conform to fashion trends.
