If a student needs to be out of uniform for any reason during a school day, parent must submit a Uniform Pass Request by 7.00 am on the day of the request. Parents can submit the request by logging in to Parent Lounge (via the Kennedy app) and selecting ‘uniform pass request’. If a Uniform Pass Request is not submitted and approved by the College, a demerit will be issued. In this case, an unapproved Uniform Pass will be issued for the day to prevent further demerits.
Parents can order uniform online through their QuickCliQ account. This enables families to purchase uniforms online, ready to collect from the Uniform Shop (during open hours).
Please note that:
Sizing in uniform shops often does not follow standard sizing, so it is always best for students to try on garments before purchasing. This is especially important for new students as it ensures you get the right size first time. New students are advised to book a uniform fitting.
The College is conscious of the need to provide an efficient process for families to recycle their textbooks and other student resources. The College has been delighted with the outcomes of using the Sustainable School Shop for second-hand textbook trading, and we are continuing to promote and use this helpful service.
The service provides access to second-hand textbooks, calculators, stationery, musical equipment, etc. all year round.
The Uniform Shop can accept donations of clean, in good repair uniform items for their second-hand sales. We encourage parents to utilise the Sustainable School Shop or Kennedy P&F Facebook group for selling of items.
