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 24 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.
To ensure students start the college year with their full uniform, we would like all students to purchase or lay-by their uniform from December the year previous to student starting, as this enables us to provide sufficient stock in all sizes.
Lay-bys must be collected by January the year student starts.
Payment by cash, Eftpos, credit card and a cheque is available.
The College Donation may be paid with the uniform if desired.
The Uniform Shop will purchase second hand uniform under the following conditions:
• The uniform is in excellent condition
• There have been no alterations made to the uniform
• All items have been washed
• All items must be ironed where possible
Botany Downs Secondary College expects a high standard of dress from their students therefore we are unable to purchase items that do not meet this standard.
