PEGS Uniform

A school is distinguished within the community by its students and their uniform.

Penleigh and Essendon Grammar School's uniform reflects the traditions and history of the school's antecedents while serving to emphasise that Penleigh and
Essendon Grammar is a single school.

Penleigh and Essendon Grammar School requires its students to wear the uniform correctly.

RULES FOR WEARING THE SCHOOL UNIFORM

When to wear the Formal Uniform

  • The formal uniform must be worn during Terms 2 and 3.  Students may wear the formal uniform in Terms 1 and 4 also.
  • The formal uniform must be worn at all major school events.  These include Presentation Night and Church services.  Other special events to which the formal uniform must be worn may be nominated throughout the school year.
  • Students participating in concerts and other musical events must wear a vest and should remove the blazer.

When to wear the Summer Uniform

  • Students may choose to wear items from the summer uniform list or they may choose to wear the formal uniform in Terms 1 and 4.

General appearance

  • Students need to be neat and tidy at all times.  Uniforms need to be clean and in good repair.  They must be of an appropriate size for the student.  Shoes need to be well polished.
