A watch and up to two studs in each ear lobe are permitted. Nose, chin or piercings are actively discouraged. If students have piercings, these must free of studs during the school day. New piercings are discouraged during term time and must be covered with a plaster.

TAONGA
If you wish to wear a piece of greenstone or Taonga under your shirt on a piece of string or twine, that is perfectly acceptable as long as it is hidden.

Students are expected to have well-groomed hair. If hair is coloured, it should be using natural colours only and no pink, yellow, purple, lime green, red or blue tints.
