College Uniform

Students, through the SRC contribute to the design of the college uniform. At St Joseph's we believe that the student uniform plays an important role in building our college community. It is a symbol of the pride students feel in belonging to this community. 


A high standard of uniform and presentation is expected.  If a student is required to temporarily wear a non-regulation item of uniform, she must have a note in her planner signed by her parent/carer and her Leader of Year.
