Appearance and Uniform

All students must wear full uniform every day including shoes and when representing the school on out of school activities Students are encouraged to take pride in their personal appearance. The wearing of a school uniform ensures balance and equity among all students as well as providing students with a sense of school identity. Non-compliance of our uniform rule is recorded in the student’s journal and students will be put on lunchtime detention. Students may be asked to wear items of uniform or parents may be contacted about bringing in correct uniform. It is important students have spare uniform trousers etc as a note or tracksuit is not a substitute for uniform.  The uniform can be purchased from His & Hers Cleaner, Ballyclare Road, Ferbane Co. Offaly. R42 DY80
