If the appropriate clothing is not readily available, the students will be required to contact their parents to provide the appropriate clothing. Failure to comply or remedy the situation will result in a warning. After three warnings, students will have to be collected from the school premises by their parents and will only be allowed to return to school when dressed in accordance with the Multi Dress Code.

Implementation of the Multi Dress Code
All staff members are responsible for the implementation of the Multi Dress Code. To ensure uniformity, the Principals will determine the appropriateness of the student’s dress and appearance. The Principals’ decisions will be final.
These requirements are conducive to learning, set an appropriate tone, and prepare students for the formal workplace.
