Uniform Policy

Uniform Policy


The Ignatius Park College community has worked very hard over many years to instil in students a sense of pride and respect. The quality and presentation of a student’s uniform plays a key role in instilling these values. The College uniform must be worn correctly by students both at school, and whilst travelling to and from school.

 Correct Uniform: If at any time a student cannot wear the correct uniform they must carry a note from their parents.


  1. The College hat is a compulsory piece of the uniform and must be in your son’s possession at break time. The College hat must be worn at all times during recess and lunch breaks as well as to and from school.
  2. The College hat must have its white internal band intact with your son’s name on it.

 Formal Uniform

  1. The Formal Uniform must be worn on Thursdays and days where Physical Education is not timetabled. Socks must be worn up, at all times, most importantly the shirt must be tucked in at all times.
  2. In previous years the College has offered elastic waistband shorts for Years 7-9. In 2022, the College will be transitioning all students to wearing belted shorts only (previously only
    worn in Years 10-12). The belted short, worn with a belt, is the mandatory formal uniform for all year levels. 
  3. Black dress shoes with laces are the only shoes to be worn with the formal uniform. (Black skate shoes and black suede shoes are not acceptable.) Black dress shoes are identifiable by a visible heel.

 Sports Uniform

Only the complete sports uniform may be worn.

  • House shirt.
  • School shorts. (No other shorts).
  • White sports sock which must finish above the ankle. White Socks, with either IPC branding or commercial logo (i.e. Nike) are acceptable as long as they are white in colour. 
  • A laced up running shoe, below the ankle. (No slip on / Skate shoes).

 Winter Jumper

  1. Only the formal school jumper is acceptable.
  2. In Year 12, students may wear a Senior Jersey. It must be removed for Assembly or formal occasions.

Blade 2 (6mm) is the shortest blade acceptable for hair cuts.
