School Uniform

The uniform became compulsory in 1998. The wearing of the school uniform is to encourage a sense of pride and identity, that students are proud to be a member of the Ashgrove School community.

To improve the standards of uniform wear and to meet the requirements of the Ashgrove School Board of Trustees and Community students are required to:

  • TAKE pride in wearing the school uniform correctly
  • The school uniform should be clean
  • Shoulder length or longer hair must be tied back (both boys and girls)
  • A wrist watch and stud earrings only can be worn (no other jewellery)
  • Make-up is not part of the dress code for students
  • All items of clothing to be named clearly

It is the responsibility of all students at Ashgrove School to abide by the school Code of Dress.  A signed note from a parent / caregiver is required if there is a temporary change from the wearing of the uniform.
