We have a College Uniform Code that is agreed to by parents/guardians and students upon enrolment.
Once a student has agreed to become part of our college, he/she must adhere to the college standards. BDSC is proud of the positive reputation it enjoys in the community and presentation contributes to this;
we are proud that our students present themselves so well.
We appreciate that parents/guardians support the high expectations we have for students who attend with regard to uniform, attendance, learning, and work presentation.
Please refer to Section 25 in the Parent Guardian Handbook to ensure uniforms purchased meet the standards agreed to at enrolment. In particular, the requirements for shoes, dresses, and trousers.
We recommend that all students purchase a college hat to wear outside during PE or for travel to and from college.
Summer code required for Terms 1 and 4. Winter code required for Terms 2 and 3.
In particular, view section 25. Uniform and Presentation Standards.
