Uniform Guidelines

The Collingwood uniform promotes school unity and a sense of community. It is a symbol of pride and identity. It allows our student body to find ways to differentiate themselves outside of clothing choices, and our uniform also connects us to our history and from one generation to the next.

Wearing the uniform correctly and with pride shows your commitment to your team and support to Collingwood as a whole. Wearing the uniform also prepares you for your life after school when work will set expectations for you to dress professionally and appropriately. Our uniform expectations can be expanded below.
