(Acting) Deputy Principal - Students, Mr Steve O'Donnell

This week, we spoke to each Year Group with discussions around the results of the Wellbeing Survey. This included the need for better hydration, less time on phones, appropriate focus on study for examinations and respectful relationships. The other big focus was on the students’ uniform.

Advance Notice re: Uniform Inspections

Students’ uniforms will be inspected as they arrive at school next week. Students must wear their blazers to and from school in Terms 2 and 3. Standard black leather lace-up shoes are the only acceptable footwear, except during sport.

No suede or branded shoes ie: Nike, New Balance, ASICS etc. Shoes must be of a leather type that can be polished to a shine. Shoes with coloured stitching or other embellishments such as buckles, are not acceptable. Boots of any type are not permissible.

Shirts must be tucked into the trousers at all times and the top button of the shirt is to be done up with the appropriate College tie.

Detentions will be issued to students wearing incorrect attire.

All students also need to ensure they are fully attired on Saturdays in full winter uniform or their Waverley College sports attire. We cannot permit any variations that include some casual attire mixed with Waverley attire please.

I want to wish all Years 7-10 students the very best with their current examination period, and encourage those students to keep hydrated, reduce screen times and get enough sleep to enable strong performances in those assessments.
