A New College Hat
Introduced after extensive consultation
with the College community, there has
been a positive response from students,
parents and the local community.
Girls in the current Year 7 are the first to
wear the hat with subsequent Year 7 cohorts
to follow. Girls in other year groups are
welcome to order a hat from the Uniform
Shop if they wish.
While an attractive addition to the uniform
the purpose of the hat is sun protection
with the College being mindful of continuing
the sun protection culture that its feeder
primary schools have fostered.
