2022 Sport Uniform

The College will be gradually transitioning to a new sports uniform in 2022 as the first stage in updating our school uniform for style, comfort, fit and durability. Some of the new sports garments are expected to be available from late January with some delays caused by the current economic situation. The current sports uniform is now limited in stock at the uniform shop. Please note that there will be a three year transition period where both the current and new uniform will be permitted to ensure that families receive value for recent purchases. Feel free to discuss the new sports uniform availability with our helpful team at Dobsons.
