At Marian, the uniform is a symbol of the College and a public declaration of its values, standards and beliefs. It creates a sense of collective pride and demonstrates equality and mutual respect amongst students. Full College uniform is to be worn correctly to and from the College, during the school day and to any arranged events, unless parents have been notified otherwise by an official College letter.
Students out of full uniform are expected to have a written note from a parent, which is to be presented to and signed by the Homeroom teacher.
For practical Physical Education lessons and other sporting activities, the official sports uniform is to be worn. Students, who do not have correct sports uniform, wear the College uniform to and from school and change for the appropriate activity.
The School uniform shop is open:
Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday 8am to 12 noon
and can provide all the student’s requirements regarding their uniform. A uniform price list is available at the uniform shop or the College Office.

For safety reasons, fully enclosed black polishable leather school shoes are to be worn at all times. Slip-on or canvas shoes are not safe nor appropriate, especially for sport and practical classes and, therefore, are not allowed at MCC.
