On special occasions students are permitted to wear a selection of their own casual clothes to school instead of their normal uniform. Generally, these occasions are held as fundraisers for selected charities, therefore a gold coin donation from each student is seen to be appropriate.
Whilst it is a casual clothes day, the School still expects students to observe principles concerning the dignity of each person and the respect for others. Students need to be mindful of the styles of clothing and appearance that are deemed to be inappropriate at The Peninsula School.
In the case of girls, items considered inappropriate include singlet tops, tops that expose the midriff, micro shorts and micro skirts. This also extends to dresses with singlet or shoestring straps. Hair still needs to be tied back for some subjects such as Technology and Science. The School rules still apply with regard to the wearing of jewellery, make-up and nail polish.
In the case of boys, items considered inappropriate include shorts which fall off the waist exposing underwear, slogans on T-shirts that would be deemed offensive and singlet tops.
For safety reasons, both boys and girls are not to wear any form of open-toe shoes such as thongs or sandals. All shoes should cover the toe.
If a student has a PE class or sports practise the usual PE and sport uniforms are to be worn; students will then be permitted to change back to casual clothes.
Furthermore, students should be mindful that if they are dressed inappropriately, or that their appearance is deemed not suitable by Heads of Year, then they will be required to change into more appropriate clothing or return home.Students are reminded to bring their locker key on casual clothes days.
