At Xavier College we foster in students a strong sense of community and pride.
This is why we require all students to wear their full uniform, especially when representing the school at sport or for any other purpose.
We ask parents and students to ensure that they are familiar with our school uniform and grooming guidelines below.
School Locker Shop
Xavier College has entered into a partnership with The School Locker who retail school uniforms, technology, footwear, stationery, sporting goods and musical instruments. Stationery can be purchased online and delivered to your door, and the College uniform can be purchased online ready to be collected from the College shop.
The School Locker Shop will be open:
Tuesday: 8:00am - 12:00pm
Thursday: 12:00pm - 3:00pm
Jewellery & Piercings
Ear: One stud or standard sleeper (plain silver or gold only) may be worn in each earlobe, for female students only. No jewel/coloured stones etc. to be worn.
Other piercings: No visible body piercings are to be evident. Tongue rings/studs are strictly prohibited.
Keeping a hole open will not be accepted as an excuse. This means that ‘clear’ studs are NOT to be worn as they are visible. No band aids are to be used to cover piercings.
Sleeper: plain silver or gold only
Stud: plain silver or gold only
A simple gold or silver chain may be worn around the neck with an appropriate religious symbol. Chains should not be visible in winter and all jewellery should be removed for sport or practical subjects.
Body Art, Tattoos & Makeup
No body art is to be visible, this includes any form of tattoos.
Makeup is not to be worn to school by junior girls. Senior girls are permitted small amounts of natural makeup only. Girls will be asked to remove excessive or visible makeup immediately. Nail polish is not permitted.
Hair & Shoes
Hair is to be kept tidy and off the face. Extremes of fashion are not acceptable. Simple accessories in school colours may be worn. In practical classrooms work health and safety (WHS) regulations require that hair be covered or tied back at all times. Xavier College reserves the right to have a student modify their hair if it does not meet the College standards and expectations.
There are clear rules for school shoes at Xavier College. Shoes must be black, polishable, hard leather, lace-up, closed school shoes. Laces must also be black. Students are not permitted to wear soft leather, casual, sports or skater shoes.
Open or buckle styles are not permitted under Work Health and Safety regulations (WHS) for practical, laboratory and workshop situations, as they pose a significant safety risk. Girls are not to wear open, buckle or casual shoes and boys are not to wear soft casual, jogger or skater styles.
Any questions or problems may be referred to the Assistant Principal or the relevant Homegroup Teacher or Pastoral Learning Coordinator.
Students are only permitted to use the designated College backpack. If they are unable to fit extra equipment, such as sporting gear or clothing into their College backpack, students may bring an extra bag that adheres to plain College colours. Backpacks are available at the College Office.
