Curro Century City school uniform

General

School uniforms are ordered online via MY HUB, but we suggest that you visit the Concept Lounge for your child to try on a few sizes before you place your order. 
Natasha Kwonglee is the lounge coordinator for Curro Century City. She will be able to assist you with what items you need to purchase for your child.

2. Dress code
 
Neatness and school pride are high priorities for us.  They cultivate a positive self-image.  The very important principle of 'what goes with a school uniform' must apply at all times.
• Learners may wear only combinations of school wear as found in the list of official, formal school wear.
• The long trousers for boys and girls must fit perfectly around the hips – the crotch of the trousers may not hang between the legs. The legs of the trousers must be of the correct length and must end neatly on top of the shoes.
• The boys must wear a navy-blue or black belt with an ordinary buckle.
• Only black school shoes are allowed for both boys and girls.
• Black leather or canvas sandals may be worn by primary-school learners ONLY. Sandals must have straps around the heel.  No flip-flops are allowed. Learners from Grades 1 to 12 may not come to school barefoot.
• Boys' gingham shirts have to be tucked in AT ALL TIMES. Because of the style of the shirt, girls may wear their winter and summer shirts over their skirts or trousers.
• No underwear may be visible.
• School tracksuits are sportswear and may not be worn as formal school wear.
• The school T-shirts and Quantec shorts do not form part of the formal school wear and may therefore be worn only during sports practices or matches.
• No t-shirt may be worn under the school wear.
• When the school shirt's sleeves are rolled up, they must be rolled up to the elbow.
• Girls may not roll up their skirts around the waist.
• The hem of the skirt may not be more than 10 cm above the knee.
3. Jewellery
 
4.1 Boys
• Wrist watches and medic-alert bangles may be worn. No other jewellery is allowed.
4.2 Girls
• Wrist watches and medic-alert bangles may be worn.
• Earrings are allowed. Only ONE earring per earlobe is allowed and then it may only be a gold, silver or diamanté stud or small ring of no more than 15 mm in diameter.
4. Hair
 
Neat, well cared for hair completes the picture of a proud Curro learner who has a good self-image and who feels good about their school.
Boys
 
• Hair must be NEATLY STYLED, have a SHORT APPEARANCE and must be clean at all times.
• Hair must be combed and no strange styles on top of the head are allowed.
• Hair may not hang in the eyes, may not be cut unevenly, may not be clipped back by something.
• Hair may not be gelled to create strange styles – especially not to hide the length of the hair.
• Hair that hangs over the ears or shirt collar is too long.
• Hair may not be dyed.
Girls
 
• Hair that is longer than shoulder-length must be tied back.
• Longer hair may not hang in the eyes – it must be tied back with a navy-blue or white hair band, an elastic or clip, or tied back in a pony tail.
• Dyed hair that deviates abnormally from the natural hair colour (e.g. white spots or stripes or unnatural colours like orange, blue, etc.) is not allowed.
5. Beard
 
Boys must be clean shaven every day. Long sideburns or moustaches are not allowed. Sideburns may not be below the earhole.
6. Make-up (girls)
 
It is not appropriate to wear make-up with a school uniform.  Long nails and French manicures are not allowed.
THE EXECUTIVE HEAD (OR THEIR DELEGATE) RESERVES THE RIGHT TO MAKE A FINAL DECISION SHOULD ANYTHING BE UNCLEAR.
